Hunter Ancestry Prestonpans Lochgelly

Hunter Ancestry in Prestonpans and West Fife

Image
In 1985 I made a number of trips to the General Register Office (image below) in Princes Street, Edinburgh to research my ancestry. That was before digitisation so it was necessary to physically search the civil registers of births, marriages and deaths. I also spent hours looking through Old Parish Registers and census records. It was a laborious process, but after a couple of weeks enough information was gathered to construct a basic family tree.

Hunter Family Ancestry Discovered Photographs

On another blog page I described how in 1985 I made several trips to the General Register Office in Princes Street, Edinburgh to  research my ancestry. This is a  link to my Hunter Family Tree  as far as it goes at present. It is an ongoing project. The photographs posted below are members of the Hunter clan. Each has a reference number to help find that person's entry on the family tree. Further photos will be added as I search them out.

In March 2021  Rangers Football Club  became Scottish Premiership Champions. Scotland's greatest football club have now won a record-breaking 55 league titles. In fact, since their formation in 1872, Glasgow Rangers have accumulated more domestic trophies than any other football club in the world. It has been a difficult decade for Rangers fans, but we are back in our rightful position as the dominant force in Scottish football.

Suzuki Jimny M13A Spark Plugs Replacement

Image
I decided to replace the spark plugs on my Suzuki Jimny. This blog page includes images and comments on fitting new plugs. I've owned my Jimny for about 7 years and never replaced the spark plugs. Whether they'd ever been renewed since the car's manufacture in April 2007 I don't know, but with a current mileage of just under 63K I came to the conclusion that it was probably about time.
