Unst Family History
I’m from Shetland, in fact from Unst, Britain’s most northerly island, and I am trying to put together a complete Unst family tree (read Why Am I Here? for the reasons why). This blog will contain any interesting anecdotes and comments as I go through the process of researching the ancestry of all people who lived in Unst.
I have registered my project as a One Place Study.
I’ve got two main sections splitting my posts into Family Tree related posts and Unst related posts, some posts will appear in both sections of course. Or if you prefer, you can just scroll through the blog, i.e. the list of posts which has the newest posts at the top, and see if you see anything interesting.
Here are some of my favourite posts to get you started:
- So close, but never knew
- Knitting is women’s work?
- A Gray day in Bristol
- Why is local knowledge important?
My Blog Title
For those people not from Shetland who are wondering about the title of the blog, Wir Unst Family, “wir” is a Shetland (possibly even Scottish) word for “our”.
