Treasure Hunt

Our ancestors have left much after them not least ourselves and yourselves and all our cousins in South Africa, India, America, France, Jersey and elsewhere including for some, the throne in Sweden. They have left us a treasure trove of artefacts and places of interest, which you may wish to seek out in your own good time.
