Hi Carol,

I tried to email you twice today, but the email was sent back to me. It said mail delivery service failure, returned to sender. I don't know why it did that.

Unfortunately I've never heard of an Omar or a Benjamin Ramsden. So I don't know if there will be a connection or not. I haven't got much info on the Ramsden's yet. To be honest I'm not quite sure who I'm looking for. But I know that my lot are mainly from Rotherham.

Anyway, see below the info I have so far. I'm afraid it isn't very much but it is all I have at the moment.
