After quite some time I have finally managed to complete Lecture 2.
One of the main reasons that it took some time was that it involved writing a biography of a grandparent. This took some time to get all the research together, and you are always tempted to seek out a bit more before writing the biography.
It was good though to write the biography. I now have a better understanding of my grandfather (Horace Leighton) and his life and it feels as if I know him better now. It is strange, in that you know most of the information yet it is not until till your write it down in narrative form that it comes alive and how bits connect together in a way you hadn’t realised before.
On to Lecture 3 now, the General Register Office.
