    1. Good morning Niki, Many thanks for being in touch. Did you hear of the site from Jackie Medicks? Some brief biographical details of your parents would be most welcome.
      Best regards

  2. HI Douglas, I have just discovered your website – what an amazing wealth of information. I am Ann Stewardson – Robin Arkle’s sister in law. We met at his funeral and chatted about family history . I am spending a very wet day reading your web pages, and adding info to the Arkle tree I am compiling on Ancestry. I am seeing your cousin Doug soon, so shall show him your site too.
    All the very best

    1. Hi Ann, Great to hear from you. Conscious of the fact that most of my genealogy stuff was hidden in files, I have been building the site as a means of sharing my findings. I have been remiss in not being in touch with Doug but your e-mail will jog me into action. Pass on my best regards to him when you meet, Keep in touch. Best regards, Douglas.

      1. Hi Douglas,
        Thanks for your reply (only just seen, as didn’t spot an email reminder). Will pass on you regards to Doug. No doubt I shall be pestering you soon about the tree!


  3. Hi, I am Helen grand daughter of Giulio Fugaccia and loved your article about his shop in Stromness . He was a colourful character and an entrepreneur owning several businesses over the years. I had been to Stromness several times only to find the shop closed and in disrepair, however in 2008 you can imagine my absolute delight to find the shop open and beautifully preserved by the shop owner Elaine that you met. The inspiration on seeing my grandfather’s shop led me to establish a jewellery business of my own which includes the Fugaccia Collection so that our name still lives on-www.scozzese-design-jewellery.co.uk

    1. Hi Helen, What a great surprise and pleasure to hear from you. I’d be more than grateful if you would be willing to share some of your grandfather’s story.

      Best regards
