Discovering Your Scottish Roots

Pinterest is like a wonderful treasure chest filled with “goodies”. Sometimes you search and find wonders through intentional aim and purpose. Sometimes you accidentally stumble across a marvelous finding. One of my boards is labeled “Cultural Diversity”. How did this pinboard come to be? It's a long story. First there was an article where the seeds took root, but it was deleted. Then there was a blog where the seeds were planted but did not grow because the blog was removed. Finally ended up being a collection on Pinterest. It's a lovely home for my of “things” that represent the uniqueness of all the peoples on . If ever come (or come again – some say they've been here already and might be here now), then they might stay busy just browsing the links and may not have any inclination at all to start a war with us. emoticon :smile: The most recent pin added today (May 5, 2015) is The Genetic Diversity of the Scots .

Had not posted pins in a while and glad to have found this one!

The Scots certaiinly seem to be very genetically diverse. Lots of immigration there!

I would love to discover my Scottish roots, except that Pinterest insists I sign up first. Not going to happen any time soon.

No biggie! Here is the original link that was shared via Pinterest. Not sure if there's a cost attached to the research. But go for it! http://www.scottishorigenes.com/content/medieval-ethnicity-map-scotland

Wow, thanks. I loathe Pinterest only slightly less than I loathe FB, so that gives you an idea...

I work at home all day and would have no interaction with the outside world at all were it not for Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, PersonaPaper, etc. My social and professional life is very restricted. On the plus side, communicating via the Internet takes me all around the world. I could never do it otherwise! It's cool to be talking to people in the UK, Asia, Africa, Australia, etc.! I didn't get that opportunity even when I worked for the federal government! It's wonderful exposure! :)

I'll agree with you there. My writing allows me to connect with people worldwide. (My dayjob does too but that's in the nature of working for the health service here in the UK, because our medics and nurses are from all over the world. They want to work for the best, I like to think!)

I have had a really eye opening week about where my life may be going online, and I'm pleased to say it seems to be good.
