Re: Oldest Arculus?
I must report that you are not yet the oldest Arculus on the planet.
My great uncle Ronald Arculus is 82. I believe he turns 83 in August. Ron is in terrific health, so you have got a ways to go yet before you can claim to be the eldest Arculi !
Ronald lives in Mundesley, near Norfolk. Ronald is one of the four children of Percy William. Connie, Frank and Stanley (my grandfather) are the others; they have all since died.
I am writing from Toronto, Canada. Stanley had two sons, Paul and Michael. Paul is my Dad; I have two brothers, Scott and Douglas. We all have children; Scott has Alison, Doug has Gabriel, and I have Charlotte, Jeremy, Caleb, Caitlin and Ian.
Much of all that is in Julian's research, which you have.
Today, out of the blue, I received an email from the American branch of the family, namely Diane Arculus. She mentioned she had been in touch with you. I have been in sporadic touch with Diane's family for about a dozen years, and now we're renewing acquaintances.
That prompted me to check this board, which I have not looked at in years. And here you are! It is nice make acquaintances with you as well.
