A little kindness goes a long way, it's unfortunate that it gets forgotten.
We've also got the Hugenot ancestors on my mother's side, aunt is very keen on tracing the genealogy but I glaze over a bit so can't name names!
Thank you for sharing that, it is a jungle out there. What does encourage me is that we are a resilient lot and will get by in the end, just as Mr Bsag has done. And continues to, armed with a better understanding :-)
