Gravestones – full of information.

Gravestones – full of information.

When you are looking for your Scottish ancestry pre 1855 don’t forget that gravestones can give lots of information. This stone in St.Monans gives details of Andrew Roger, his wife Agnes and their family. Andrew died in 1819 aged 75 so birth 1744 so both birth and death pre 1855. I enjoy visiting graveyards on my walks! I always check gravestones when researching for clients.

Scottish Ancestor is back in business!

One thing this Pandemic has allowed is that I have managed to have time to gather all the bits and pieces of my own family research and put them together. Years of notes, (yes I like pen and paper!) have now been inputed to my Legacy Family Tree program. I have made a booklet with family photos – it has only taken 34 years! I started researching when my son, now aged 39, went to Primary School. Three years ago I had to stop providing Ancestral Tours due to health issues at the time and stepped back from doing Family Research for clients. However, I am now in the process of getting my website updated (by and will be back up and running in the late Autumn researching for clients but sadly not doing any Tours.
