There’s so many story’s your maw and dad spoke about, telling of relatives you can or maybe not remember. One of my cousins back in Paisley touched on the genealogy quest early last year off the back of an enquiry from another cousin over in Canada, this got me thinking and reality kicked in, That if nothings done to capture these old bits of valuable information they’ll be lost forever. So I started questioning my maw who is 87 and loves to talk but her stories and dates change and insists on stopping at every lamp post with every tiny detail, but we get there in the end. I quickly realized how much of a black hole this genealogy is, and the realization of these genealogy bandits or slot machine subscription paid websites.
