your post was the best and most comprehensive account i have ever received or come across regarding our branch of the family. funny that you should post this on my birthday, but that's really just a happy coincidence. you do know a lot about the sarthous. my sister isabel would have a grand time interviewing you regarding the family tree, if you give her half a chance.
my dad would have been happy to hear about all this new information, had he still been with us. alas, he missed out on your message by about ten months. still, i can't help thinking how happy he would have been to finally find someone who knows the clan's story.
i also can't help noticing that there are a quite a number of architects in the family. your list would also now include myself and my dad. we're both architects.
