Loose Ends.

Just for fun, and for no other reason than sheer self-inflicted punishment, I put together a genealogical chart of the indefatigable Jacobite Old Lady Nairne, to help me better understand the labyrinth of relationships that characterises the 18th century here in Scotland.

I used one source, which was a simple article by the eminent (and sadly, now worm-infested) Walter Biggar Blaikie, entitled ‘Perthshire in the Forty-Five’ and included in the Marchioness of Tullibardine’s 1908 summer hit, A Military History of Perthshire, 1160-1902.

There’s some guesswork involved, and it doesn’t even include the Atholl grandchildren or any illegitimate progeny along the way – surely there was a handful.

    Okay, ye of so little faith.
    Don't you think this goes into the 'Thematic Enrichment' category?
    Geesh!

    This heavily supports the 'Gay Bear' theory only posited a couple of days ago.
    You know this, right?

    I like 'Willy'…was he the red-headed step-child?

    You bet. As ginger as they come.
    And broke, too. But the inheritor of the line, I believe.
    Oh, like you care. 🙂

    …and where did you get a copy of GothVisio…? That looks great. Is it Visio (so I can copy your style for my work presentations).

    What the hell is GothVisio?

  16. ubernacht Says:
    June 2nd, 2004 at 2:04 am

    Visio for Goths…? The chart looks very artsy and wanted to know if you used Visio or another program.

  17. FunkyPlaid Says:
    June 2nd, 2004 at 2:08 am

    Ach. Right.
    Nah, I used OmniGraffle, a Mac app that kicks ass.
    The pseudo-artistic flares are my own, baby. 🙂 Once I learn how to use it, I'm sure a much better job can be done. And perhaps exported to Keynote or PowerPoint…
    *drools*

    OmniGraffle huh…hmm..anyway, looks good. I do visios every day for work and like the flare yours has…But I think 'VisioGoth' has more market power…especially for historical european geneology charts…:)

    Now them there's a good idea.
    Why don't you market any of these things you come up with, man?
    🙂
