I can take no credit for this blog my Great Great Aunt Margaret Shanks wrote nearly all the content and Angus McDonald compiled it all into a book he intended to publish. Since Angus failed to get it published, the 500 pages of content in Word floundered for a few years with a cousin of mine. With the facilities we now have available on-line I have decided that to blog the column that Margaret wrote might work quite nicely.
All of this comes from my interest in Genealogy and another blog of mine documents that and other aspects of my life. Margaret as a Shanks was related to John Shanks who founded and ran the Shanks Sanitary Ware Company.
How am I going to do this? If I had every column rather than just a selection I would have enough posts to post daily every day for over 5 years. What I have will keep me going for a couple of years on a weekly basis. We’ll just have to see how it goes.
