Bio and Links
I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I did, once, venture across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.

Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

RE: William Rodgie (Jerusalem)
Many thanks, Ian, for updating the Rodgie record. And I hope that your travels do take you to Hawick one day. It's a lovely old town.

Best wishes,

William Rodgie (Jerusalem)
A quick note to thank you very much for the lovely photo and transcription of William Rodgie's tombstone. Just one small question: as far as I know, William's wife was named Mary Elizabeth Graham. The couple married in Hawick, Roxburghshire, Scotland in 1863. Mary died not long after William -- in Hawick in 1876 at the age of 34.

Happy travels!
And many thanks,
Mary Kelman Harrison

Ta Iain for the amendment. Hope all's well in your world. I too have travelled to your neck of the woods but only passing through to visit my cousins in Lisburn. =)

RE: Edna Genthner
It would be a great name!! It is the Damariscotta Library to me as I have problems pronouncing Skidompha :)

I live in Bremen and hit cemeteries when out and about too - was in one in Jaffrey, NH this past weekend :)

I love my cemetery adventures and try to add as much to memorials that I can so that those doing research can get as much as they can....

Thank you for uploading the image of the grave of Christina Irvine Mainwaring who died in Italy in 1904. I was delighted to find the images of her grave.

Many thanks
