Kirsty F Wilkinson has not received any gifts yet
A professional genealogist whose job is also my passion. I run the My Ain Folk family history research service and if you need advice or assistance with researching your Scottish ancestors I would love to help.
I started the Scotland and Scottish Ancestry group here on GenealogyWise and I invite anyone with Scottish ancestors to join and to post their family details. It's quite a busy group and I hope it will help us all to find lost cousins and to get over some of our brickwalls! If you would like some more personal advice please feel free to send me a message or you can also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I blog about my own ancestors and about some of the interesting records I come across whilst doing research at http://professionaldescendant.blogspot.com and you can also find me 'tweeting' about genealogy at http://twitter.com/GenealogyGirl

I'm the family genealogy compiler. James MUIRE arrived from Scotland, to Virginia in 1691. We have nearly all of our line complete since that time. The Muire Clan place their roots at Rowallan Castle, Kilmarnock, which my wife and I visited in 09.
Good to have a connection to the homeland.
Can you please add my Scottish surnames to the Scotland group:
Thanks! SEONAID @genebrarian
And, our family is HENDERSON from Ardnamurchan and Mull. Is it easy to start a HENDERSON group or sub-group? Is it better to post on the general Socttish site rather than create a sub-category?
Im hoping you might be able to help. I researched a whole Wilkinson family after being told that my husbands family all came from Oldham and I managed to find a family on the census returns that fitted in perfectly. Anyway it now turns out that they came from Huddersfield. My husbands great great grandad John Wilkinson was born in 1871(from census) in Huddersfield, married Clara Marsden and had Harry in 1893 before moving to Blackpool where they had Gladys and Cyril before moving to Oldham. I dont suppose you have come across this family? There are a few John Wilkinsons in the Huddersfield area in 1891and I dont want to pick up the wrong family again!
There is a MacClaren Surname group
As for me we research everything Lawes/Laws.McLaws
I went back to Scotland People and went through all of the Paterson again. I took all of the Paterson (soundex too) from 1660 to 1700.
Did not find a link through that. The only Andrew close to 1659 was in 1658 and son of Andro and Margret Durie. It was the same information I already had. I will do a time line with my info but I do not think it will help. I also, tried surname navigator but I had problems entering the site for some reason.
I have checked out all that I can find and I am still at a loss. Is there anything or anywhere that would be suggested or that you can help with to find the parents of Andrew Paterson born in 1659 of Hamilton, Lanark, Scotland? It has been suggested that his father be Charles for that is the name of his first son.
Are you able to help with locating a father for Andrew?
Thank you, Ezziej
