Genealogy

I have been interested in family history since I was about 12, and used to badger my nan for stories of when she was young. Since then I have spent many happy hours (and many frustrated ones!) digging around in a variety of record offices around the country.

    Thank you so much for putting this freely available online! I have finally found more information on my great grandfather John Nairn and so much more than I imagined! I would love to know where you found all of this information. I have struggled for years to find anything!
    Kind Regards
