It’s been amazing how one thing has led to another during my ongoing research into my family history. So one minute I’m trying to find out about my great aunt Valda Mary who died in Palembang, Sumatra, during the last war. Next thing I discover that I’m one of the many many many Descendants of King Henry VII of England (see below) on the extensive list put together by Paul Theroff. I’m not actually included as yet, but looks like I’ll be indexed as 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.5 once I get Paul the updated info on my family.
