In June I had an opportunity to extend one of my work trips and head up to Newark to visit Grandma, Uncle John, Aunt Ann, Sarah and Dominic.  It was a lovely visit with the family.  Grandma showed me some old family photos and gave me some information which allowed Jocelyn to dig into the family history on the Hall side.  Jocelyn managed to get the Halls back to the late 1700s.

Sarah and Dominic also took me to Newark to show me the local museum, the Castle (where King John died) as well as one of the local tea rooms which is situated in a 15th century bakery.

It was a great trip.  I hope to get back there again on my next trip to London!
