First Steps….

While visiting Barcelona on holiday I happened to meet Kay Davidson and in the course of casual conversation my nascent Orkney descendants project came up; it transpired that Kay knew people in Orkney whom she suspected would be as thrilled and fascinated as she had been to hear about the Pandora’s connection with Orkney and the relatively large number of Orcadian men on board.

I am therefore indebted to Kay, whose contacts, enthusiasm, good offices and advice were very encouraging and in no small degree contributed to the ‘genesis’ and development of this project. One of the people she put me in touch with was Alf Baird, who suggested contacting Howie Firth, the convenor of the Orkney International Science Festival.
