Wow! I love this kind of story. I thought it was going to be a picture of Victoria & Albert's tree from the very top - the truth was much more interesting!

Thanks, Joey and Carrie. The setting does look quite Victorian, doesn't it? It's interesting to view your family history through the lens of events of the time.
