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.
Seasons greetings! I hope you
enjoy the holidays and generally have a great time. Don't forget that
this is the perfect opportunity to speak to the old folks about their
family history recollections while you're all together over the festive
season. So get your pencil and pad ready and dig out the old family

Primary from 1930 and Auchedly School (near Tarves) from the 1940's. Do

The ANEFHS have produced two new MI books -
Fraserbugh Kirkton (Old Ground) and Logie Buchan with Newburgh Holyrood.
Each is £3 plus postage (UK postage is £1.17 for Fraserburgh and 73p for
Logie Buchan). As many of you know I'm a great fan of these books and I
think they're worth every penny. If you've not seen these before then I
should explain that within each book you will find a listing of every
stone, along with a full inscription, an index of every name found and a
map to help you locate each and every memorial. What more could you
want? You'll find the complete collection listed
here Many thanks
to Jean Shirer of the ANEFHS for the information and well done to all
those involved in producing these!
