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 2015
A new addition to my
War Memorials page. This memorial take
the form of a very large tablet with bronze inlayed panels. It's located
at Trinity Cemetery and dominates the lower half of this resting place.
This month I've shown the first three panels and I'll show the following
six over the next couple of months. Do you have ancestors mentioned on this one?
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. 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.
Two lovely old photos of Union Terrace, Aberdeen,
for those nostalgia fans. The first shows the gardens in the early
1900's - and how lovely they look. No H M theatre though - it hadn't
been built yet! The second shows a memory to many Aberdonians - the
playing of draughts - a simple but popular pastime for our (shall we
say) more senior citizens. See these lovely images in my
Local Photos section.
Well the summer months have (more or less)
arrived. Finally we can all escape our houses and enjoy the outdoors. We
had some wonderful weather in April and we're all hoping for the same in
May. The gardens are growing and the grass is making up for lost time.
In my opinion this is one of the best months for seeing our lovely
gardens and our countryside - everything suddenly bursts into bloom and
foliage. Catch it while you can!
The following months are now the best for your
visits to the NE of Scotland. The daylight is long and the sun is now in
a position where most photos will turn out great. So time to get
yourselves here and immerse yourself in history. There's lots to see so
get here soon!
That's it for now. Don't forget
there's updates every month!
