Thanks for your reply. I went up to the SoG show
yesterday and the LDS church were, obviously, in
attendance. Although I knew about their Hyde Park
Centre I have not visited. Anyway, they had all the
indexes there at the show and apparently they hold

Thanks again for your reply.
I know New Barnet although I don't live there. I live

because my Uncle used to live
at New Barnet.
