Letter to the Editor about 'Members’ interests' from Eileen Barnes, Berkshire

I joined the Society early last year and my names were included in the Members’ Interests list that appeared in the September magazine. Within two weeks of publication, I received a letter from another member who was researching one of my names (Westall of East Ilsley). We have corresponded by letter and email and have spoken on the telephone. There is a possible link in the late 1700s and we are still working on this. On the 16 October I received an email from another member who is researching another of my names (Clark of Welford). Within six days we had established that his great great grandfather was my great grandmother’s brother. Is this a record? We have since been passing information to one another on an almost daily basis and between us have built up a substantial tree. We hope to meet in Reading soon to visit the Research Centre and the BRO.
