One of those oooh moments

I was looking through A.... and a certain new entry caught my eye. Someone who had quoted old records to do with the Blythe family. Looked it up and all the older tree was a mess. However there was a mention of a reference I didn't know about so I emailed them most politely and asked where they got the reference. We had some very interesting conversations via email and then he said I've got an old handwritten book with initials and Blythe on from 1603. I suppose your Museum would like that? Oooh.

I said I certainly would like a copy of the contents. I'm not sure whether his family would want to part with an heirloom. I'm sitting here wondering if he will send me a copy. It may be an account book and just a list of figures who knows but it could contain information that no one has seen before. I do hope he will copy it.

I'm trying not to get too excited. He might decide not to bother. But his mother is a Blythe. Perhaps she'll come and see us with the book. He's in London but don't know where she lives.

My fingers are crossed that you get the book - I've just donated something to my home-town rugby club which will be treasured although many urged me to put it on ebay.
