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 - July 2015
This month I've added the last two photos showing
the stunning memorial that commemorates those who fell in the Great War
located at Trinity Cemetery, Aberdeen. Do you have ancestors mentioned
on this one? Find the photos on my War Memorials page.
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.
Another school photo to enjoy this month. This
time its the turn of Culter School, Peterculter, from 1948. Are you in
this photo or do you know someone who is? Time to check it out! Find it
in my School Photos page.
I'm always interested in finding new and
interesting sites. This month I'd like to recommend
Women's Hospitals which has some beautiful photos, biographies and
many many names of those women who served in this most noble profession.
I've also added this site to My Links page. My
thanks to Alan Cumming for his kind permission to link to his site.
You've done a wonderful job there Alan - keep up the good work!
The ANEFHS continues to roll out new MI's at an
amazing rate. Last month I reported the publication of the 4 volume set
that makes up the St Machar grounds in Old Aberdeen (ISBN
978-1-9005004-39-3) which costs £13.50 plus postage. This month it's the
turn of the Lumphanan kirks (St Finnan's and Stothert) (ISBN
978-1-905004-44-7) which costs £2.40 plus postage. These are great
volumes and worth every penny. Congratulations to the volunteers who
produce these - more power to your elbow! Further details of the
above and other volumes can be found
Well I'm off to enjoy the long summer days but
I'll be back with updates next month as usual. Meantime keep well and
push on with your research!
