@Richard III of England is my 1st cousin 17 times removed. The whole discovery of his body after all these years is very interesting. I love history and so this story was right up my interest tree.

Very interesting.

It's hard to imagine how people lived back then with the lack of sanitation and clean drinking water. No wonder so many people died young...

It is very interesting to read that through forensic developments we are able to discern that a person had round worm. However, and I speak as a very amateur genealogist who is doing this "for the heck of it" and because I had no information on my fathers family, I am absolutely delighted to be related to whoever I may discover turning the next corner. You see I grew up in Northumberland, my favourite castles are there, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Warkworth, and I love the castles of County Durham, Raby and Barnard. now living in Worcestershire My all time favourite castle in this country, Warwick, is a 20 minute drive. All of these great places were either built by or completed by a relative of mine. Ok, enough rambling, I'm actually on vacation in Malta for two weeks. Your heads up to the article is a great "share", but did we have to mention we read it? i for one am looking forward to visiting Richards grave when they eventually agree where it will be, although Leicester is still favourite. Michael, I am delighted that you have given us the opportunity to add remarks to your original posting, if it helps anyone in any small way to develop their "tree" and ancestry further then you have "done your job" so to speak. Kind regards Lesley

My 1st cousin 17x removed via some Stoddards, Goodrichs, a Norton, & some Nevilles. Worms don't matter- he doesn't need his body anymore anyhow. ;> So un-royal, however.

Edward IV is my 15 GGF. Lesley, you are fortunate to have been raised in the UK!!! My GGGP's emigrated from Mirfield, England and I haven't been able to trace them further: Charles & Elizabeth Talbot Tunnicliffe -any suggestions??? once, on a lark I checked all the signers of the Magna Carta and was related to 2/3rds and King John lol. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
