Recent interest in the Lawrence family (Dec 09)

"I was very interested to find on your website the memoir by Betty Lawrence. My maternal grandmother, Ada Lawrence, was a sister of Betty's father William. I have very fond memories of Betty.

I have lost contact with the Lawrence side of my family, and would be delighted to hear if any of them are still in Dane End or Little Munden, or if there is anyone who can help me with information about the family."

In addition to the item submitted by Mr Legg;

If you have Wi Fi and are on Orange, it is possible to have a phone with UMA which allows calls to be made routed through your broadband. It is really only designed to work a short distance from your home, but you can add many computers to the phone and connect to those as you visit friends or family in the area ( if they also have WiFi).

Vodaphone also offer (at a cost) a booster device which you plug in at home allowing calls to be made and received. I'm not sure if it only works for specific numbers or if anyone passing using that service can 'avail themselves of your facilities'.

Vicky Thomson
