Mr PHL and I went to Register house today to research into our family history. £15 gets you access to all the Scottish records. As viewing each record normally costs 25p, the daily fee is a bargain.
I’ve done some before but this was Mr PHL’s first foray into his history. He was a little surprised to discover his great granny had 3 children out of wedlock!
I managed to get some more detail than I had before and discovered amongst other things that my granny on my dad’s side was one of 7 children.
It’s so interesting and I can see it becoming a bit of an obsession for both of us.
I took a walk at lunchtime and bought a cross to add to the Garden of Remembrance in honour of my dad’s father. You can see the photo in extras.
Home with some Halloween goodies but so far not a knock at the door so guess we will be eating chocolate for a while!
Played with a photo of my hydrangeas for Abstract Thursday - thanks Ingeborg for hosting
