And, yes, useful!
I have been corresponding to a delightful lady from Saffron Walden recently.
My ancestors lived in and around there for at least 500 years, but I know next
to nothing about the area. She has been able to fill in a lot of the
"background" - little details people often may take for granted when you are
from a place, but of great interest to those of us away. She also filled in
some missing data, information she had about my family not hers!
I often list my own area, as people are often curious about their ancestors
that left home and where they went. I have been able to assist people who had
relatives that came to Canada, and answer questions about Canada in general.
