Lotto Win.... am definitely smiling today

As you know I do alot of work for the Maryborough District Family History Society and one of our amazing researchers has been documenting local businesses that we have had over the years and then I put the info into the Societies database.. 

Well this morning was a lucky strike for me I am reading through the email and realise the bloke in the email is related to me and I have very little on his wife so this was like striking gold.
