Michael Flint Does the Impossible

Why hire an heir hunter when you can go to ancestry.com — or one of the many other online genealogy services out there?

I wanted to share a bit of the research that went into writing this story. Last weekend was Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrating 70 years on the throne. That’s a long time to serve or to remain in any job, for sure. I can’t quite imagine being in the public eye for 70 years! I […]
