Scottish Monuments Update

Hi everyone.
It has been a while since we sent out one of our wee newsletter updates.
I ended up in bed for months last year with pleurisy and it has taken quite a while to get back on my feet. catching up now I am glad to say and we should be back out on the road photographing as soon as the weather clears a bit.

Janette has been working hard transcribing the data we had to hand and I am glad to say we have another 4 CDs all ready to go.
Dunfermline Cemetery should be due soon, please be aware this was a big project which will take up to 4 CDs to get all the data on, we hope to have at least part of the 4 ready for the April Family History Fair in Dunfermline and on the website as soon as possible.
Thanks for all the feedback we have received over the months regarding the CDs, it is always appreciated as are any corrections you find, we do make changes when needed.
