Welcome to Monklands Memories
We have recently added a few more great sculptures -
unfortunately we have to redesign those pages also - the pics are taking
too long to load up. The site has been growing too much over the
years and it has been decided that the site will concentrate mainly on Local
History and memories about or from local people.
You will notice that a few - less popular - features have now been removed:
. Computers -Humour Pages, Poetry pages -some leisure
pursuits such as: Cycling, Fishing, Hill walking,
History of the Monklands
For many people, the way into local history has been through tracing their
family history. The family historian wants to know about the history of the
locality where their ancestors lived but equally the local historian is
interested in finding out about the families in their locality.
Local history is all about telling the story of people and places over time. It
should aim to trace the origin and growth and sometimes the decay of a local
community. This approach will help you to ask the right questions and to adopt
a professional style to the work.
I have just added a wee picture of an 1966 tenement in
Easterhouse - sent in by a reader in Wales - many thanks Valerie - see the pic
on Easterhouse page.
