Dear Readers,You may recall that Mrs Oz and I are currently visiting the UK doing family history research for approx. 80 days. We are in Scotland for our first 6 weeks before moving south into Wales and England. Besides researching ancestors, visiting headstones, copying birth, marriage and death records &c. we are also on a mission to reconnect with living branches of our families. So far Mrs. Oz has found 3 branches of her family in Stirling and 1 in Glasgow. Mrs Oz has a forest of Scottish ancestry. I have discovered that I have 1 Scottish branch in my family tree: the Hope family of Edinburgh. I am allowed to claim a clan tartan and can officially wear a kilt - a manly dark green and purple number with a thin yellow cross thread!!! Mmmm.Well, after 2 weeks we are finally having a break from visiting cemeteries and record offices. We get to do some sightseeing this coming weekend, woo-hoo!Sinead Keenan and I had a Twitter moment on Friday 1st October just after Mrs Oz and I got back from Edinburgh National Library. What a great start to a hopefully relaxing weekend. Luv ya, Sinead!Above: Tom In Oz on the way to have lunch at The White Hart Inn Edinburgh which was established in 1516.
