Enjoy visiting the towns where your ancestors lived. I found a beautiful picture of the Brighton Royal Pavillion in East Sussex where my Grandmother worked when she was 16. I was thrilled to just imagine my Grandmother working in that beautiful place. My Grandmother died when my Father was 16, therefore I never knew her personally, but I am learning about her through Family History and exploring the internet sites of England.
