Digging Up Your Roots - Perthshire Axe Murders and Ragged Schools!

Yours truly makes an appearance on this Sunday's "Digging Up Your Roots" episode on BBC Radio Scotland. My three times great grandmother was brutally murdered in Forgandenny in 1866, and in the programme we examine how the murder left a devastating legacy for her brother, in whose farm her body was found.

Also featured is Kennneth MacAulay on his journey to find more about his grandfather's time in the Edinburgh "Ragged School".

The episode is previewed at and will be broadcast Sun 27th January 11.00.

I really enjoyed the story, Chris, and the amount of information available was amazing. What a sad way for William to end his days.
