Oh boy, yes please!

This is something currently consuming my mother-in-law and my daughters as a 
common project. After learning from her grandmother that 
great-great-great-great uncle Fred was a Hollywood actor, our youngest has 
decided to use Fred Esmelton as her topic for her class presentation.

We're 5 weeks away from Christmas; more than enough time to produce a PDF 
and maybe have a print-on-demand run distributed at our Christmas dinner.

Excited thanks,
Javier + Helen
