Names and archives and all…

Following on from the visit to the National Archives at Kew last week, TOTD was ‘filing’ info on a newly ‘discovered’ great-great-great grandfather only to notice a certificate of baptism from 25 years ago this very day.  To mark the occasion (in a Nigerian river as it happened), here are some websites sent in by someone inspired by last week’s visit to the Archives:
