I must apologise once more about having been Missing In Action again. I have had a busy time trying to sort out and complete a report on one of my family’s history to send to cousins in Queensland. The Kinmonts came from Perthshire, here in Scotland, and we have traced the family back to Patrick, a shoemaker and crofter around the end of the 17th century. Today there are descendants of Patrick and his unknown wife all over the world from Britain to South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. I have the Kinmont name from my father’s mother – well her sister actually, as my middle names are Anne Kinmont not Charlotte as was Granny’s name. Annie was my dad’s favourite aunt.
After visiting Portknockie a few weeks ago I have something similar to do for another of my families, the Woods, and I have so much to catch up with in the blog. However, my dear friend Colin has just had a heart bypass operation and I am going to be looking after him, helping him to get back on his feet, so I’m not sure what time I will have for blogging for a while. I may be able to do a few short posts. We’ll see how things go. So, in the meantime here are a two-three photos for you to hopefully whet your appetite!
Talk again soon.
