Aberdeenshire CD update

Kevin Smith has been in touch to say that his The Aberdeenshire CD (see http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2011/01/aberdeen-cd-version-3.html) has been updated further to version 3.1, and now includes the following additional extras:

* A partial extract of Cornwall's New Aberdeen Directory for 1853-54;
* Aberdeen University Bursary Competition results for 1863-1866, extending the range to cover 25 years;
* Local Events and Obituaries from local newspapers added for 1866 and 1888-1891;
* Additional photographs of Aberdeen in the Gallery;
* Miscellaneous newspaper articles such as the 1888 election of Fraserburgh Harbour Commissioners.

The Aberdeenshire CD is available for only £15 plus £1 p&p from www.kevinRsmith.co.uk and contains fully searchable and annotated transcriptions of material including trade directories; Aberdeen University bursary competition results; local events and obituaries; birth, marriage and death notices; gazetteer; and much more.

(With thanks to Kevin)
