"Dear Lady Teviot – thank you so much for your superb talk tonight which was very much appreciated by all of us. I am sending my official thank you letter as an attachment as I am sure, then, that it will get to you as our post has been a little "odd" around here lately.
Good luck in all your travels, especially your forthcoming one to Australia. Perhaps I may contact you in a couple of years for an update on your travels with "Heir Hunters"? Thank you once again."
A comment from the Surbiton & District Historical Society September 2010
"I am sure that everyone who attended the conference found Lady Teviot’s talks as enjoyable as always and we look forward to inviting her back in the future."
"Our distinguished speaker this month was Lady Teviot, another new face for the Deal Branch, who is a professional researcher with over 25 years’ experience. Her talk, entitled "Kill or Cure, Medicine in the 19th Century", was a fascinating insight into the conditions that our ancestors died from."
"I would like to thank you for the excellent talk you gave us last week. We enjoyed the talk and it is always very helpful to understand the background to systems such as civil registration as it can help when we are searching for our ancestors’ birth, marriage and death records.
I am particularly fascinated by the attempts made to manipulate the civil registration system to obtain money by deception which you touched upon in your talk – I know that there are births and deaths which were registered fraudulently and they still exist in the records waiting to catch out the unwary researcher. As a one name researcher I am hoping that my family was honest in their dealings with civil registration – research is hard enough without looking for people who never existed or didn’t die when their death certificate says they did!"

"Thank you so much for coming to talk to us and for assisting with our AGM. The information you gave on Wills, Admons and Probate Courts will be of great help for our newer members and also as a reminder to those more experienced in research. Such a valuable source of family information. It was also very enlightening to hear about Heir Hunters and the amount of hard work that goes on behind the scenes, I’m sure we shall all look out for the next series."

"Very many thanks for giving your talk yesterday, we all enjoyed it and found it very helpful, especially as we have several new members who are only just starting on their research. Thank you once again and hopefully see you again at some time."
