      I am a Thomas descendant. My great-grandfather
      emigrated to South Africa.

      Hello Harry,  I visited St Helena in May/June this year to research
      my family history.  Surname Thomas.  I was able to trace backward 3
      generations but not forward to my generation.  It is very expensive
      and you need at least a month if not longer for the travel from
      England and time on the Island.  Is it worth it?  I loved every
      minute of my journey.  Met many interesting people and made friends
      with whom I hope to keep in touch.  It may have been cheaper to pay
      someone to research my family history from the London Archives and I
      probably would have got more information but the Island is unique
      and I don't regret one penny spent on the journey, although I
      probably won't be able to afford a return visit.

      Diane
