She was my favourite ancestor with wonderful memories.
the experience of making your digital story like?
Its like a new opening for the hobby I have been interesting in
for 42 years, that's family history.
Its given me a future application for recording my history instead
of just the written word.
I was most
impressed with the project team. They were clear and very instructive.
The team were most helpful, patient and considerate and it was a pleasure
to work with them.
