UNCLAIMED MONEY Trove Tuesday 30 June 2020

Are any of your ancestors mentioned in the list below?
I wonder how many of those listed actually claimed the money involved. Perhaps they did claim and it changed their lives.
Before you ask, I doubt that any unclaimed money would still be available now, over a hundred years later...still, it's always interesting to see our ancestors names mentioned and wonder...
