Hehe ! If like me you have ancestors who spent a fair amount of time in Singapore / Malaya , you might find this interesting .
To get full access you need to be at a library in Singapore :( - but the text is fully searchable and a reasonable amount is displayed in the search results.

:idea: PS. Are any of you going to Singapore soon :?:

That’s very interesting Sally,

I just put in the rather uncommon name of a distant relative who lived in London and up pops a result regarding his 1930s divorce. It says that he divorced his wife because of her adultery with a Greek gentleman whose name is given. None of that was mentioned in the London Times.

Definitely worth a dig!

Thanks again,
Alan
