  1. Marian, I just listened to your archived blog talk radio with Martin Hollick. I thought you did a great job, very interesting. Just wanted to let you know that I have Bennett Hodsoll among my ancestors and his tip was greatly appreciated. Now that I have the radio show on my calendar I won’t have to play catch up. Good luck with future shows. I will be listening. Brenda
