“Just like to thank you and the team for a great night. Well organised, lots to eat, and lots and lots to research. I had great success“
“Many thanks for the chance to participate in last Friday's lock-in. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it - even if I did suffer from what felt very much like jet-lag on Saturday! I finally found something that could possibly lead to more information on my maternal grandmother's birth - the first really good lead in 25 years!
Many thanks also to your librarians, who were always so helpful.
The night passed so quickly and I didn't need to look at my watch once to check that it was time to go. Look forward to the next one in 2006.“
“Thank you for having the vision to organise the lock-in - the service from you and your team plus the experts was faultless. I heard many cries of joy as ancestors were located and brick walls came tumbling down. It was truely a genealogical adventure and I do hope it won't be the last.“
