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 - June 2015
A new addition to my
War Memorials page. This memorial takes
the form of a very large tablet with bronze inlayed panels. It's located
at Trinity Cemetery and dominates the lower half of this resting place.
This month I've shown the panels numbered three to seven. I'll show the
last of them next month. Do you have ancestors mentioned on this one?
Another excerpt from the local newspaper of the story regarding the scandal
that enveloped Nellfield Cemtery in 1899 when it is thought that up to
300 graves were destroyed or interfered with in some way. More
names again this month so if you suspect you have ancestors buried there
prior to this date then it would be worth checking these out. Be warned,
this might be an uncomfortable read for some. You'll find the story so
far on my
Odds & Ends 2 page.
Two more school photos to enjoy. This time it's
Walker Road school from 1948-49 and Inchgarth School from 1962. Time to
wallow in nostalgia. Are you or yours in these ones? Check out my
School Photos page to find out!
Well we are now enjoying long hours of daylight -
though really warm weather is still eluding us. Gardens and countryside
are now in full bloom - a real treat for the eyes. This is now the time
to visit if you want to see the countryside at its very best - so get
your skates on!
If you do visit the area don't forget to check out
the ANEFHS on King Street. This is a real treasure-house of local
knowledge and documentation. I've just purchased the MI for St Machar
(all 4 volumes!) and I'm astounded at the work that must have been
undertaken to bring it all to publication. So go along - you won't be
That's it for another month. Take
care and keep researching!
