Knitters on St Kilda, Outer Hebrides, Scotland
St Kilda, Outer Hebrides, Scotland
In my genealogy research I am finding several interesting connections. I’m trying to trace each branch as far as possible. Right now I’m in the midst of several 17th and 18th GreatGrandparents and I’m finding links to two castles in Scotland, pictured below.
Merchiston Castle Tower, Edinburgh, home to the Napier family
Wemyss Castle, home to the Livingston Family
My 14th Great Grandfather Admiral Sir Andrew Wood, 1450-1515. This is a replica of his ship.
The Open is in Scotland. Wish I were there – despite the rain and the wind – after all that’s Scotland isn’t it? For those who are wondering, this is a golf tournament. The Wimbledon of golf.
