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 - August 2016
Another two local photos to enjoy this month.
Definitely a nautical theme - with two views of Aberdeen harbour dating
from the 1930's and the 1950's. Sadly these days you can't meander round
the harbour - the best you get is peering through a metal fence - ah
well, that's progress. See these splendid views on my
Local Photos page.
An extract from the local paper, the Aberdeen
Journal, from 30 June 1900 showing the births, marriages and deaths. Are
your ancestors mentioned? Only one way to find out - check out
my Odds & Ends 3 page!
My thanks this month to Norman Pratt who supplied
some names to go with two School Photos. It's
great to have these images but it's a real bonus when you can put names
to the faces! The schools in question are the Middle School
1948/49 (27) and Aberdeen Academy 1956 (42). Thanks again Norman!
Well the weather in the Aberdeen area has been
it's usual changeable self. We've enjoyed many dry days - with the odd
shower just to keep things interesting! It's a great time to explore our
local towns, villages and of course many of the hundreds of graveyards
we have in the NE of Scotland! So if you haven't arrived yet to explore
- get your skates on! (as many a mother used to say).
That's all for this month. Keep well and keep
