Searching for Family History

A busy day today trying to fit in as much as possible as tomorrow is my last day staying with my mother.

I now have wheels!  Perhaps not the original ones I came down south in, but certainly ones that work – my mother’s car.  I am feeling slightly less stressed now though I have to learn how to drive a semi-automatic car 800 miles.  I think we will know each other very well by the end of the journey.

I have also been busy looking through the family photo albums for pictures that are relevant to Great Aunt Kate’s diaries.

I found some wonderful pictures and have added a Gallery to the website now.

This is Kate.

Kate’s little sister and my Great Grandmother – Alys.

Me, Alys, my sister and mother.  Hamish is the westie.

I still remember everything about this scene. I think I was three years old.

And this photo made me laugh.  I have never seen it before. Who knew I like sheep?  (I am on the right in the stripes with my older first cousin).  I was ten years old.  OMG the trousers!

And me, again! Oh crikey.

    Hey those were cool pants:)! I well remember 1973 – though I was in my first year of college – quite a bit older than you. Thank you for the beautiful photos of your family.
