  • So Much to View

    Posted by Ross Hansen on 19th Sep 2021

    Most of my ancestors left Great Britain and Ireland before 1900. So this Directory provided a great insight for me into what those countries were like during the late 1800s. There is so much here to view that I have only read a portion of it so far. I'm thoroughly enjoying this journey of exploration.
