Hi Tanya,

Just wondering if you got my message?

Hi Tanya,

How are you?, I have a lot of information concerning my ancestry in Heytesbury, and was asking if you would be able to send me the list if possible of the births and marriages 9or just one list)!?, the ops of Warminster sent me her list of marriages for that place and I was very grateful as its saves me lots of time going to the society in Chippenham.

I would be very appreciated.

Kind Regards,
