As you may note from my varous messages, I have documented information to
the name only of my ggg John Leslie, probably born in Longside about 1800,
but I am stuck there. A am a member of the ANEFHS, and I did go into their
offices once, but I was at an early stage of my research. I need to go to
Longside and read gravestones of talk to people there. I don't know if there
any Leslies left in Longside.
Margie's offer to do some searching is great. I hope she can find something.
