Last Saturday I travelled to Ashtead to meet my mum at her sisters where I heard some cousins and aunties would be present. To my delight there were indeed many extended family members lunching and we shared the great many cakes and drank wine together.
Later we viewed a DVD – Armstrong Archives I had with me of recently digitised family standard and super8 cini movies some filmed by my grandfather Claude as early as 1942. As a consequence of the gathering we exchanged emails with the good intent to remain to better contact and meet again sooner. On returning home I felt energised to the point I built a family Armstrong blog into which I am inviting them all to contribute.
