A collection of historical and genalogical records

Bannockburn Live is a three day event announced to take place on Saturday 28, Sunday 29 and Monday 30 June 2014 staged by
the National Trust for Scotland to commemorate the 700th anniversary of one of Scotland’s most significant battles – the Battle of Bannockburn.

The specially created festival arena will feature a programme packed with music, Scottish food & drink, crafts, literature and outdoor activities all set in the beautiful surroundings of the memorial park.

Alongside the biggest Battle of Bannockburn re-enactment ever seen in Scotland, an array of themed villages will be constructed each presenting the sights, sounds and atmosphere of medieval and modern Scotland. There will be three opportunities to watch the reenactment each day so that everyone can see and enjoy all of the performance stages and the theatre tents.

The bespoke arena will include a main contemporary music stage, Scottish literature and traditional music in ‘Storyville’, tastings and
food demonstrations in the ‘Land of Food and Drink’ featuring quality Scottish produce and real ales, hands-on bush craft, wildlife and
outdoor activities in our ‘Natural World Village’, along with a children’s programme, a chance to participate in sports like archery and "have a go" highland games and an opportunity to trace Scottish roots for families returning to Scotland. Programme details will be announced in due course.

Applications are now open for clans to apply for their pitch. In 2009, the Clan Douglas Society of North America kindly looked after our tent at the International Gathering. I rather hope that someone may do the same at Bannockburn! I will be otherwise engaged with the Douglas Clan Gathering, which runs from 30th June to 6th July 2014.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
