Most people looking at this will have my email address and/or can talk to me direct about what they know of the Curhams.

This website is able to be accessed by everyone everywhere though, so there may be people who will find it and who may have knowledge that will make this better. Or you may just wish to comment generally, see below for the comments widget.
