If you have information about any of these branches, please contact Mark Poyser.

For those interested, I wrote up a story about how I discovered the fate of my uncle (Frank Chapman) who died in World War II. It was about exploring the Internet and how you can find some astonishing things. Read it here. (A much fuller presentation is here which tells of a further link in the story - one that involves an Australian chap)
