That is very kind of you Alice. I look forward to hearing about your visit.You know I still have a hankering after knowing where we ,the Knappers, came from and why the family has been centred on Stoke on Trent and the five towns over several centuries. Even today there are more Knappers in the Stoke on Trent phone book than anywhere else in the UK. There are many Knappers in Germany, Holland and Denmark and I cannot help thinking that from somewhere across the North Sea our distant ancestors travelled to this country. It is probably a thesis that we may never be able to find the evidence for.
Good luck in your UK searches

Best wishes
Leon
