This is one of my favourite post cards. When I am feeling genealogically stuck, and can not find ancestors, either where they are supposed to have been or where I think they were, I turn to this card and gain inspiration. One of the key things to remember, especially when dealing with rural areas, is that our ancestors would have walked miles, often across fields and along country lanes. What we now walk as a pleasure activity they would have walked out of necessity.
