I suspect somewhere in the deepest depths of your subconcious

that little bit of information was stored.

I figured it was a stinker of a question as many folk perhaps hadn't heard of a Munro.

Good luck with that

Mrs RMJ spends hours every week doing family history.

It's funny, I wouldn't have the patience, but I can sit for hours doing a crossword.

Yes, I can believe you.

I suspect it's a little addictive.

Mrs RMJ gets really excited when she finds a new family member from years ago.

She has traced one branch to a family who owned a corn mill in Blackley Manchester in the 1600's.
