Liz Verburgh's family research took her on a journey of discovery. From the Blue Riband of the Atlantic to Dutch artistry; from Peruvian coin-making to Arctic Russia, Liz was amazed to discover what her family had achieved before her.
Her long hours of digging through cupboards of old documents and photos and many more hours on the internet paid real dividends. She was able to bring to life the memories of her grandfather - a Knight of the Realm and Commodore of the Queen Mary, as well as those who had gone before him. With the assistance of a fellow genealogy enthusiast, Liz has edited her findings into a fascinating 20 minute presentation which she is delighted to share. Sit back and enjoy!
