Google has updated it's satellite imaging!

We have noticed there are now more detailed images from Google for a swathe of the southern Scottish Borders and northern Dumfriesshire, so we can make more accurate links to your ancestors’ homes. So far we have updated the mapping for previous parishes covered to take account of the more accurate imaging, and have also added new data for Cavers (including Denholm village). We will continue adding new mapped areas over the next few months.

This latest update to the database has also added various household links and notes. This is generally information we come across whilst searching, for example if we’ve untangled a complicated family we add notes and links to make it easier for anybody who follows in the future.
