This site is far from static. Every month there
are new additions (see below), so there is always something new to
discover. I usually have at least one series of articles in progress
along with a selection of other bits and pieces.
If you are a new visitor I hope you will come back
again. To my many regular visitors, thanks for your continued support
and kind words. Thanks also for all the feedback I have received. A
number of features have been incorporated as a result of these. Further
constructive comments are always welcome. You can e-mail me
Finally a number of visitors have asked me about
permission to use material from the site and other legal things. In
order to clarify this you will find the terms and conditions of use on
my contents page.
LATEST ADDITIONS - January 2016
Two more Local Photos
this month. This time I feature a glimpse of Old Torry, Aberdeen, as
seen in 1962 and the shipyard of John Lewis & Sons, Aberdeen, in 1963.
Sadly, both of these are long gone.
School Photos to enjoy. The first is Frederick
School in Aberdeen from 1948 and the second is Auchedly School near
Tarves from the 1950's. These are always fascinating to look at and I
know many of you also enjoy them!
More snippets from the local newspaper, the
Aberdeen Journal. This time we're looking at the paper dated 1st April
1892 which includes some deaths notices and a couple of stories of local
news. These are always worth checking - you never know when an ancestor
will pop up - so check out my Odds & Ends 3 page now!
It's been a long time since I last included a
List - so this month I've included a
small table showing the graduate doctors of Aberdeen from April 1892. Do
you have a doctor ancestor?
A happy new year to you all!
As you'd expect the NE of Scotland is cold at the
moment! I can't wait for the longer, brighter days of summer to return
but in the meantime it's a good time to work on all the other aspects of
family history. Talking to relatives, writing up the latest research,
looking through old photos (and labelling them!) and all the other
wonderful things that go into recording family history for future
generations. There's certainly plenty to keep us busy!
Till next time, keep warm - and keep researching!
