poetry and prose about place

A little genealogy: where my ancestors once lived …

with 2 comments

I am interested in the history of my family and I have decided to link that with my exercise program. I am again using my stationary bike to improve my fitness and using Street View (Google Earth) to travel virtually as I cycle. It is a great way to pass time and avoid getting bored with the cycle.


I have chosen to ‘travel’ in Scotland since that is where one branch of my family comes from. In the mid-1800s, John Clark and Jane Cooper traveled with their children to Nova Scotia, Canada. They lived in the Insch (Aberdeenshire) area of Scotland and records say that Keig, south of Insch, is a possible birthplace of my three greats-grandfather in about 1799.



Have a look at my wellness blog to find out more about my exploration of Keig, Scotland …

Enjoy your mini-tour of the roads where my ancestors may once have walked.

All my best,

  1. Such a nice idea. And Keig isn’t too far from the North Coast of Scotland route I’m doing in my current Conqueror Challenge. It’s beautiful, in its own bleak way.
