Happy Saint Andrew's Day!

It's Saint Andrew's Day! We're very proud of our main man here, but he's also something of a worldwide phenomenon - here he is in a metro station in St. Petersburg, Russia, as snapped a few months ago on an Unlock the Past cruise visit to the city:

Here in Largs we've been celebrating our patron saint - here's a wee video to enjoy from a bash I was at on Friday night!

Check out Google's tribute also at, and for things more genealogical, do check out my guest post on Ancestry's blog at to read my overview of the site's new Calendars of Confirmations and Inventories 1876-1936 collection.

Have a great day!
