Young Folks

Graham (Samuels) has made an animation pop video for Swedish group "Peter, Bjorn and John".
To see it follow this link: Young Folks - it's a catchy tune too.
Graham has also done artwork for the group's album covers and website.

Branch Meeting

A meeting of two branches of the Nicholls family took place today when Mark & Sally Samuels met up with Billy and Kate Nicholls for lunch at the White Horse at Capel St Mary near Ipswich. Billy contacted me through Genes Reunited; He and I are second cousins once removed (Billy's grandfather Nicholls was the youngest brother of my mum's grandfather Nicholls). We met over a drink followed by a hearty meal at the Carvery. We had a great time chatting about the family and sharing some of the family history we had found out.

We enjoyed the opportunity to get to know our "new" relatives and look forward to doing it again sometime.
