Was it my surname that prompted the Dutch journalist to call me, rather than the two Doctors I co-wrote A Tale of Tech City with? I enjoyed chatting with the De Volkskrant journalist Patrick van Ijkendoorn. As a former journalist, I am sometimes nervous about trusting journalists (!), but perhaps because he is not a British journalist, I felt quite relaxed. Unfortunately, I can’t read the language of my distant relative (great-great grandfather I think) and the website had a paywall which stops me using Google Translate. However from the paper version, shown below, I can see I was quoted a couple of times!
