Starting in March 2011, Kathleen collated information on the people and places in Tankerness from a variety of sources and brought it all together under one umbrella. A current picture of each property is common to each entry but thereafter every entry has its own unique identity. Many properties are too new to have history and, at the other extreme, many ruins and forgotten crofts only have history.
By using a good mix of photographs (old and new), memories and census information, as was available, Kathleen has painted a picture of Tankerness and many of its inhabitants over the last two hundred years.
Her purpose has been to leave a record for the next generation to reflect on or to build upon, but chiefly to produce a book that engenders interest and enjoyment to all who read it.
This book is a limited edition of 800 copies which through its sale she hopes to be able to make a generous donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.
