    1. Hi Juliet
      Funny how things we always took for granted in families suddenly become of interest when looked at afresh.

  1. The family history sounds very exciting, looking forward to learning more. As for the Award, you deserve it, you brighten my day, but never mind about sending it on. For most of us there are never enough hours in the day, but the nice thing is we know we are all there. Don’t worry, enjoy and keep smiling. Have a fabby day and thanks for the mention. x

  2. Hi Susan
    Yes, it’s odd to realise you’re the one carrying on the traditions and stories. I think my sister is starting to write things down so they are recorded somewhere. Makes sense!

  3. Fascinating blog as always. Writing must be in your family genes and how wonderful to possess a book written by your relative. You must surely finish reading it and do one of your wonderful reviews. Good luck too with your daughters research into the family. You never know who she may find!

  4. Hi Kit
    I think I will have another go with Linday’s Love, especially knowing more about the background of the author. Will keep you posted!

  5. I shall think of you next week when I visit Glenshee. I go with my husband and daughter to a beautiful village called Dunkeld every October for four days and we always do a drive through the mountains trying to spot the wild roaming deer.

    I’d love to do a family history but unfortunately, my mum doesn’t have enough information and my father died ten years ago. My husband’s family have lived on our farm since 1919 but he doesn’t know much about them before that.

  6. Hi Crystal and thanks for visiting. I’m lucky because my parents kept lots of family mementos including a family tree researched in the 1950s. Although we have lost touched with most ‘branches’ it looks like my daughter is determined to make new connections.
    It’s a long time since I was in Glenshee but I’m hoping to go back to the Highlands some time soon. Enjoy your trip!

  7. How fascinating to find a book like this, written by an ancestor. I know a few people who have researched their family history, and it’s quite amazing the things they’ve discovered.

    I would love to devote time to looking into my own background – I made a start a few months back, but kept on hitting a brick wall. One of the problems is lots of quite common names – I keep on thinking it would be so much easier, if I has a very unusual, French sounding surname, or something!

  8. Hi Helen
    DD and I are off to the library tomorrow to try out the ancestry database. Our problem is that so many people in our family share Christian names as well as surnames – v. confusing!
