      Hello Andrew;
      I would be very interested in joining a Peterhead chat group.
      I live in Ontario, Canada, about 89 miles north of Toronto.
      My father, William Leslie was from Peterhead, as was my
      grandfather, William Leslie, and my great grandfather,
      William Leslie. I have aunts and cousins in Peterhead.
      I have visited Peterhead three time in recent years, and I am
      working on my family history. With the help of Wayne Buchan
      and others, as well as the records of Scots Origins,
      I am presently stuck on getting information on my
      ggg grandfather John Leslie, who was a Crofter from
      Longside.
      Regards
      William Leslie
