I enjoy following the ancestral trail: the detective story element in hunting for information and corroborating it with evidence, (I do not like to be defeated), the satisfaction of finding key facts, and writing up the information in an interesting way that appeals to others. So do read on, or even better, sign up as a follower. I would love to hear from others who share my enthusiasm for family history.
"Lest We Forget"- Scottish Memorials: Military Monday
For this month of November when we remember our ancestors who died in war, I thought I would post a series of images of war memorials, both in Britain and abroad - last week England, this week in Scotland.
Right - This is the imposing war memorial in the town of Hawick, where I live in the Scottish Borders. The setting is Wilton Lodge Park, a former 107 acre estate of the Pringle family, whose home is now the town museum displaying illuminated rolls of honour of the war dead. This photograph was taken last winter.

Below - The war memorial at Oban in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland.
