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 - February 2016
Two school photos and
two consecutive years this month. Mile-End primary in Aberdeen is the
school and 1957 and 1958 are the years. Enjoy!
You don't have to travel far to find
War Memorials in the North-East of
Scotland. I'm pleased to show you just a sample of them. This time it's the
monument to be found in the centre of Tarland - a tribute to the fallen
men of both wars from that district. A simple but poignant reminder
More revelations from the local newspaper of the story regarding the scandal
that enveloped Nellfield Cemetery 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.
Finally, many thanks to Gavin Baird for getting in
touch and solving my Mystery House
We had our share of heavy rain last month but
hopefully that's all past now. The days are slowly lengthening and the
sun is starting to make an appearance! Soon be time for the first bulbs
to pop their heads up and add a bit of colour to our gardens.
Well that's it for now. Remember there are updates
every month so don't forget to check back!
