Re: [Peterhead] Filing System
- Hello Ed Campbell;
My advice is to buy a good Family Tree Maker Program, Family Tree Maker,
Generations etc. All you have to do is fill out the forms on the screen, and
the program puts people in the correct relationship.
I too am searching for ancestors in Longside, mine and yours must have
crossed paths at some time. it is not such a big place.
I am searching for information on my gg grandfather, John Leslie born about
1800 in Longside. My great grandfather James Leslie, and my grandfather,
William Leslie were born in Longside. Let's compare notes.
