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 - March 2015
Three more photos of the war memorial at
Auchenblae to capture all those named on this beautiful stone. See the
results on my
War Memorials page.
Another part 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. Yet more
names 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.
My thanks goes to Mike Davidson this month for
sharing his old school photo - Kittybrewster Primary from 1947 or 48.
Not only has he supplied this wonderful image, he's also supplied most
of the class names - an incredible bonus! I hope you'll take the time to
check this one out - you can find it on my
school photos page. Should you know of any of
the missing names on this or any of the other photos please get in
touch! Meantime thanks again to Mike for sharing.
The days are slowly stretching and the sun gets
higher every day (that's when we have sun of course). I've taken a few gravestone photos but it's very early
days yet for good images. I just have to be patient!
This is the very beginning of the crocus season.
I've got a few in my garden to cheer me up and many of our local parks
are just beginning to bloom with these little beauties as well. There's
nothing like a splash of colour to cheer you up!
That's it for this month.
Don't forget I'm back with regular updates so remember to stop by and
check them out.
Good health and happy researching!
