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.
I just had to post this photograph taken yesterday January 13th in my garden in Hawick in the Scottish Borders. It brightens what has otherwise been a grey dreicht winter and contrasts with the heavy snow of the last two Januarys.
Complementing the day, was this stunning sunset over the town.
