Super photos

IMAGINE my surprise and delight upon opening the Observer last week on pages 34 and 35, and seeing those wonderful photos of my ancestors - my great-grandparents William White and his wife Charlotte, and their daughter Caroline and husband James Mitchell, my grandparents.

Thank you Victoria Seymour and the Observer for making my day. It has given the Mitchell family, and I suspect the White family too, a great buzz.

Thank you cousin Linda Smith, secretary to the Hastings and Rother Family History Society, who supplied the photographs.
