Welcome to my web site.


Wise friends and clever kids tell me that the essential thing about a web site is to get it up as soon as possible - there will be time enough later to fiddle with the lay out. So here it is with absolutely no garbage adverts, pop-ups, flashing signs or other distractions - just pure information, and mainly in 14 point font  to make reading it easier.


Navigate to the indexes of the main topics using the links at the bottom of the page.


Material about the Reformation in Scotland, England and Europe; and the trials and tribulations of the Covenanters in Scotland is now at

I hope you enjoy your visit and find it to be of interest and a help to your own family history researches.

  Web site reinstated & updated: 07/08/2012, with ongoing tinkering. CB :)
