Missing death record?

Re: Gaelic speaking

Thank you. It was always my understanding that Gaelic was only exclusively spoken in certain areas, eg the western isles. I was surprised to see it mentioned£ about someone from Invergordon. The information my friend has is word of mouth so not necessarily accurate.

The info she has given me is that her great grandmother left Invergordon sometime around 1870 aged about 18, and went to York to live, speaking only Gaelic.Would that be accurate, that she ...

Re: Mystery badge

Oh, interesting. Dispatch rider? I decided to bid on it as was interested and husband and myself both collect old military memorabilia and medals. The cigarette case with it was interesting too. There was also a little badge in the box with it that hadn't been shown in the lot. That was marked Royal...

I'm thinking maybe French but don't know. There's a cigarette holder with it engraved 1914. Any ideas much appreciated.

Commonwealth War Graves in Highlands

Hi all. Whilst enjoying days out here in the Highlands, we sometimes visit cemeteries and see CWGC signs. We visited a churchyard near Laggan a few days ago, and there were several war graves, mostly local men, but also a Polish one. We've found a fair few military graves in the area, both local and...

School records?

I've been seeing discussions with people on another site who are a bit upset that their old schools have now been demolished. And there seems to be no records that they ever attended there. Discussion covered if education departments kept such records, or if the Catholic diocese might, as they were ...
