Hi Anna,

My name's Matt and I work at the BBC's Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - I hope you're well!

This is a slightly random query, but I was wondering whether it'd be possible to get hold of a high-resolution copy of the image of Rosemary, our team member you spoke to at Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE? She's leaving us tomorrow, and it's a really nice photograph!

Do let me know what you think - you can email me at And keep up all the good work with the blog!

Thanks very much,
