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 - October 2016
Another two local photos to enjoy this month - both
from Aberdeen. The corner of Strawberry Bank, Hardgate in 1953, (now
sadly the site of a large hotel) and the junction of Rosemount Viaduct/Skene
Street in 1960 (love the old cars - all of which I remember!)
See them both in my
Local Photos page.
I know that many of you enjoy the old
School Photos - so here's another two! This
time it's Northfield Secondary from the early 1960's and Summerhill from
1962 - the year it opened. Enjoy!
Some more snippets from the local newspaper, the
Aberdeen Journal. This particular edition is dated 2 February 1870.
There were some tragic incidents and accidents on this day with many
names mentioned. Perhaps it may just mention one of your ancestors! Only
one way to find out - check the stories on my Odds & Ends 3 page!
Well the daylight hours are shortening fast as we
get ever closer to winter. Soon it'll be time to gather up all your
research and get down to the documentation of it all. With colder
weather and long dark nights it's a good time to start getting it all
That's it for this month. Remember and come back
and check out the updates!
