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 - May 2017

marriages and deaths from our local paper, the Aberdeen Journal. from 17

Well apart from a few days April turned out cold,
wet and windy. So let's hope May is better. However the trees and shrubs
in the gardens and countryside have started to show their spring colours.
I always think May is the best time to see the local countryside at it's
best. The bright colours are in stark contrast to the winter gloom. If
you can visit the area now is a great time to do so!
ANEFHS have recently
published two new
MI booklets to add to their extensive range of NE graveyards. The
Kirkyard of Fetteresso and Oldmeldrum (1891 extension) are now
available, both priced at £7.50. I'd recommend anyone with ancestors in
these areas to purchase these! Many thanks to Jean Shirer of the
ANEFHS for this
Well that's all for now. Remember there are
updates every month so don't forget to check them!
