BBC: Are you descended from Sheffield’s famous knife makers?

A fun genealogy puzzle from the BBC: Are you descended from Sheffield’s famous knife makers?. “A search is under way to find the descendants of the many families behind the firms that made knives in the steel city of Sheffield.
People can consult a list of knife-makers online and see if they share a surname using a digital archive. The city’s Ken Hawley Collection has about 1,500 stainless steel knives made by almost 1,000 different makers.”
