... a resource for anyone who may be researching a family history which has a
link to the old fishing community of Footdee.

I discovered my own connections several years ago and have found it's history
and people fascinating. In such a close knit community, with many people sharing
not only the same surname but also the same first name, and where cousins often
married, trying to unravel family lineage can be a confusing business.

I hope this website may be of some help with your own research, however, although
every effort has been made to 'get it right', I can not gaurantee the accuracy of all the
material so I would recommend verifying what ever you find here with further research
from other sources.

Please feel free to contact me with regard to all things ‘Fittie’.
