Re: Helen Cheyne born Kintore 1886 ** birthday bumped post *

A postscript from the originator. As a result of this phenomenal piece of cooperative working and help across continents, you not only helped to satisfy my own curiosity about my grandmother's origins and significantly to expand my family tree, but, partly as a result of your work, I have also been ...

Hello Susan After the elation of solving the mysteries of my grandmother's immediate family, I've been continuing to work on the Simpson family and wondered whether you could help me follow up your post of Oct 23rd Not been able to pinpoint William in 1841 yet, but the rest of his family are staying...

Hello again I've now posted the BCs of Helen Cheyne and William Cheyne and the MC of James Cheyne and Annie Russell. I hope they'll appear around here sometime soon by whatever magic process that happens. It looks to me as though the MC may have been signed by the parties - "Annie Russell" looks dis...

Hello Annette Yet something else I hadn't thought of! Yes I have (digital) copies of the birth and marriage certifiicates. To my untutored eye the signatures do not look the same. If I post them (Am I allowed to?) is there someone out there skilled enough to make a judgement? Obviously there are nin...

Hello again Now that you have all solved the mysteries of Helen Cheyne's maternal family, here is a summary of what I have on the only real candidate I have as her father. I have also sent this info to Jim Cheyne in Arizona who seems to be interested in the Cheynes of Haddo House. James Cheyne born ...

Hello Anne Thank you for looking. I live next to an old graveyard where many of the 19thC stones are virtually illegible so I certainly recognise the problem. When I come up next year I'll visit Auchterless and look amongst the gravestones. I'm sure that just visiting in the knowledge that it's part...

Hello Susan I find it difficult to believe that my grandmother would have identified Aunt Maggie on the photo without mentioning that the seated lady was her mother. Who knows? Maybe she did and I just don't remember. On the other hand I believe my mother (born 1920) was taken on a visit to Aberdeen...

Hello Anne Yes I’m in England – have lived in Lincolnshire for the last 30 years. I’m pleased to have a grandson after 3 granddaughters – if this one had been a girl then maybe I might have felt that I’d been mugged by a group of women! I certainly hope to visit sometime in the spring to go over all...

Hello Susan You've both beaten me to it and got further than I have. I was just about to post Rootchat's Lynwen's discovery about the middle name Shand together with the suggestion that MK must be the daughter of Alexander or Hellen Simpson. However you've done it all for me (again!). This is clearl...
