Reading through the guestbook ...

Reading through the Scott guestbook this week, I thought I'd feature just one comment that makes some interesting points.

It comes from Robert Scott (USA) and reads:

"Reading through your guestbook, I was amazed at all the Roberts, James', Andrews, Davids, Michaels, Bretts, Stevens, and even a Gerald or two... all names in my father's family; almost like some kind of genetic memory kicks in when we name our children! My father's branch of the Scott family hails from the Saginaw/ West Branch area of Michigan, USA... if that means anything to you, please email..."

Trouble is, I can't seem to find any email address supplied - which is a shame!
