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 - September 2016
Two more local photos to enjoy this month both
from Aberdeen. The Bridge of Dee area from 1948 and the start of the
Northfield housing estate in 1949. It's fascinating to see how it was -
there's been lots of changes over the years since those long-gone days.
See them both in my
Local Photos page.
My thanks this month goes to Avril Coutts who
supplied two wonderful School Photos featuring
her mother. The schools were Ferryhill from 1937 and the Central School
from 1938. I know that many of you enjoy looking at these and I often
get comments via email. If you happen to know any of the other pupils
featured then please get in touch! Thanks again Avril for taking the
time and trouble to share.
A few snippets from the local paper, the Aberdeen
Journal, from 11 April 1881. A mix of court cases, accidents and death
your ancestors mentioned? Only one way to find out - check out
my Odds & Ends 3 page!
The gardens are looking wonderful at the moment -
probably due to the amount of rain we've been getting! The long days of
summer are starting to close as the days begin to shorten. It'll soon be
time to put the heating on and start closing the curtains. Yes, we're
starting to slip into the autumn.
Well that's all for this month. Don't forget there
are updates every month - so remember to look back!
