Well, how about that!

I, too, am a researcher, but I'm not a profiteer like Alistair Moffat of St Andrews University and James Wilson from Edinburgh University. I only charge £150 to tell you a fact about your ancestors that you can't verify. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.

As a quick freebie to prove my bona fides, my research has established that all of Badpenny's female ancestors, in an unbroken line going back to Cro Magnon Man, were not virgins when they passed away.
