Gloucester's Lyn Stewart to launch her self-published book at Gloucester Bookshop

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart to launch her self-published book at Gloucester Bookshop

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart had a niggling interest in researching her family history.

She started researching her relative by first acquiring Margaret's death certificate as it provided details of her date of death, the date and location of her birth, and the names of her parents.
