What the devil is an MO? I´ve just found out about this internet gadget and was amazed to find that there appears to be entire regions of the US with my family name. I must say I was quite taken aback. I would be awfully grateful if you could furnish me with details regarding how this area came by it´s name. My father as the Earl of Lime Walk takes a particular interest in the fortunes of Grundys worlwide. I look forward to receiving your replies.
Yours faithfully
