Spreading the message about Thomas and Lucy

Steve and Gill Brown, who took part in the trip to Kazakhstan last summer to visit the places associated with their ancestors Thomas and Lucy Atkinson, held a slideshow and talk this week to show their friends in Romsey, near Southampton, what they had been up to. Also in attendance were five Kazakh students from Southampton University, who kindly brought with them traditional Kazakh foods, including the national dish beshparmak and the delicious baursak bread. You can watch a brief video of the event made by one of the Kazakh students here:
