Share Stories about your Scottish Ancestors
It became apparent on our Facebook Page that those with Scottish Ancestry regardless if they took the time to research their Scottish Family Histories or not, had a genuine interest in discussing where their families came from and just loved to share their family stories.
In light of this we decided to create Kilted Ancestors!
So what is Kilted Ancestors?
It is a place where anyone with Scottish Ancestry can share everything from Photographs, Stories, details of Artefacts, Letters, information on where your Ancestors came from or anything else relating to your Scottish Roots. Social History is a big part of Genealogy it is what brings our Ancestors to life therefore, it is important to keep these stories alive!
Why not get your entire family involved? What better way to share stories!
You can post anything anytime, though we will create 'Monthly Themes' to help inspire you....the best part is its FREE!
How do I get involved with Kilted Ancestors?
You can sign-up to receive updates on 'Kilted Ancestors' and receive the 'Monthly Prompts' via the below box.
Join our Private Facebook Group 'Kilted Ancestors - Share Stories about your Scottish Ancestry'
Or, when you receive the Monthly Prompt you can create a Social Media post via Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin etc. share your story relating to that particular topic (these are open to your own interpretation so go wild)....just be sure to use the hashtag #KiltedAncestors within your post so that others can find it like it and perhaps even comment on it.
To follow #KiltedAncestors type the hashtag into your Social Media Search and select Follow, this means that you will then see other peoples posts on your home feed and can interact with them.
You don't have to follow the Monthly Prompts and can post anything relating to your Scottish Roots at anytime you want. You can post as much or little as you wish its entirely up to you.
At the end of each month we will select our Favourite posts & will highlight these with permission to help inspire you all….maybe yours will be featured!
The best part is it costs nothing! Time to get involved!

Featured posts from December
In December the Monthly Theme was 'Tartan'. We asked you to share images & stories in relation to Tartan (the Cloth that shaped a Nation)
Christine Woodcock shared an amazing image of a Kilt Cake that her Cousin made for her Son's Birthday
What an amazing idea, how Yummy!
Ryk MacLean shared an image of one of his Clay Models dressed in Tartan
When I asked Ryk more about the model he told me that he was 'Keith Munro’ the lead drummer of the Munro Druma Sextette. My Newly found Ancestors expressing us through claymation, with old and new rhythms.”
The images below feature the tartan kilt being constructed & the model being finalised.
You can check out some of Ryk's Stop Motion videos on his You Tube Channel here
Ryk, we just had to feature Keith in his Munro Tartan this month, he put a smile to a lot of faces. The Video featuring him with the Audio on your You Tube Channel is just Fab, keep up the good work!
