Twitter is a wonderful thing!
At some point last year, Diana discovered the Historic Ryde Society Twitter account was being followed by, amongst many others, Angela Buckley, Chair of The Society of Genealogists.
Diana then followed Angela and messaged her – sorry, you have to be in it! – to ask whether she’d give a talk in aid of the Society this year. This event happened on July 22, 2015, when 60 fascinated people heard Angela tell the story of Victorian supersleuth, Jerome Caminada.
Many thanks to Angela, who drove down from Reading to the Island especially for the event, which raised nearly £400 for the Society.
