Thursday 20 January

A cold January day, but at least it was dry. Went to the library, where even the librarian had to search high and low for the booklet I was wanting - only for me to discover it did not hold the information I required. So, a visit to the community centre in South Lochs is imminent. I also continued my searches on the Internet for another aspect of local history, the results of which are posted on my Pentland Road blog.

Still on aspects of local history, I discovered that WW1 and WW2 casualties from Lewis are buried and / or remembered in 400 different locations across the globe. I intend to compile a Google Map with them all, a nice little project. Oh, I made a very nice discovery in the library (no details), which (to my mind) has endorsed and vindicated my activities in the field of local history in Lewis.

  1. I'm glad you made a nice discovery in the library. I hope it is beneficial to your good self.
    I also like how your discoveries keep on unearthing more and more of interest to you with your project.
    You are certainly driven and seem to be enjoying it thoroughly.
    I enjoy keeping up with it.
