By Author

My paternal great great grandmother’s family, the Wilkies, were traced back to Kirriemuir, a town in Angus (previously Forfarshire) located on the Eastern Coast of Scotland. The Wilkies were, and remain, very much rooted in Scotland, and many were living and working in Angus and the Dundee City area at the end of the 20th century. Many individuals in the earlier generations found employment in the agricultural sector and in the textile mills that underpinned the local economy. Others worked in domestic service and in a range of manual and unskilled jobs. A significant number also became skilled tradesmen and worked in the retail sector and in clerical positions, several served in the armed forces and, by the late 20th century, small but increasing numbers were entering the professions.
