Hi, my 11 year old daughter is studying the World Wars at the moment which prompted my husband to mention that a sculptor called Alexander Proudfoot was his mother's uncle. Also that Proudfoot designed a few war memorials and invented something.

What a find this site has been for us! Thank you to all who have taken the trouble to record details of the memorials, take photographs, etc. Alexander Proudfoot now seems like a real person to us rather than a name who probably would have been forgotten in the family by the time the next generation grows up.

My mother-in-law is the niece from Aberfeldy. She is now very old and frail, but she is still annoyed that she let someone borrow papers about Proudfoot for a book they were writing. Apparently the papers were not returned, although the person promised they would return them.

Welcome.
If your mother-in-law can remember the name of the "researcher" someone here may know them.

majey, did you ever get these documents back. I would be extremely annoyed too.
