A project in progress
New update: 21 September 2003
Skaterow was a small fishing village on the east coast of Scotland. Today it is named Newtonhill and is a place where the village spirit still exists.
I went to Scotland in 1999 to do more research and see for myself the places where so many of my ancestors lived and died.
That visit and the fact that I bought the 1881 census on CD inspired me to start tracing the genealogy of all the people in Skaterow.
The pages are not complete and I can not guarantee that the contents is accurate. As in all genealogy I hope to add more people, facts and links.
How I went about it
I began with the 61 families that lived in Skaterow in 1881 according
to the census record.
I have recently bought an invaluable item for any researcher with ancestry in the area round Muchalls. It's the Register of Muchalls on CD-ROM
I have also met other researchers with ancestry in Skaterow through the different genealogy communities on the web. They have been a great help to me, exchanging information and search tips. You can find their names and e-mail addresses under Contacts.
