Our Scottish ancestors way of life and work
A lot of us enjoy going to the places that have exhibits about our past way of life and work. The fascination we have with oor heritage is something that appeals to us all. Our ancestors were extraordinary folk. Our award-winning film archive captures aspects of our past which viewers worldwide have found fascinating and interesting to see.
The local community
When we look back at our ancestors they were folk that did not travel far to get the things they required to exist. Most of what they required was readily available in their own community. The music came from the folk that could play an instrument like a moothie, fiddle or melodion. The food they ate came from the local farms, butcher, grocer, and fishmen.
They, long before the white vans that stravage up and down our roads every day with our deliveries, had vans come to their farm. I can remember the grocer, the fishman the butcher and the draper’s vans coming to our farm. It wis an occasion. Most of the things that the vans brought were things that were made or grown locally. I nearly forgot another delivery that came to our district that was the packman. He carried all his wares in a pack and he carried it on his back. Nearly everything we required had that local brand.
Power of the local community
Local communities did more for themselves, they’re looking out for one another. Simplicity and the essentials are the things that get us bye and that really matters.
Fascinated by the past Scottish heritage story telling
The things that happened in Aberdeenshire Scotland from the late 1800s always interested me. So for the past 33 years I have been filming on video the stories of life and work in the north east. I have over 500 hours of unique film about how our ancestors lived and worked. Most of the speaking is done in the Doric dialect of our area. All that material is digitised so it is easy for me to make it available to people . Clips from the archive have gone to customers all over the world who are interested in Scottish heritage.
