If you find that your ancestors
lived in Scotland, then you may wish to have a photographic record
of where they lived or are buried.
I can visit any building or burial ground, and take a series of photographs using a high-resolution digital camera. I can then send the photographs to you on CD so that you can print them yourself, or I can make prints and send these to you. Because of the high-quality image, prints up to 12"x16" in size can be easily made.
If the stone is hard to read, I use off-camera flash techniques and digital photo manipulation software to bring out details on gravestones which would normally be missed.
If the building is no longer in existence, then I may be able to find a contemporary photograph in a library or in my own collection of books. I can also supply maps of the area so that you can see how close the building was to local schools and churches.
Although I am based in Edinburgh, I am very willing to travel anywhere in Scotland, provided that my travel, time and other expenses are paid for.
