Re: William Allan
- Hi Janet,
No, I don't have ay family connections with the Allan family.
My interest is Peterhead shipmasters and the information I posted is extracted from my book "Peterhead Shipmasters" which was published earlier this year by the local family history society based in Peterhead.
Hope it was of some interest to you

> Thanks for all that information on the Allan's. Are you also a family member? I haven't done a lot of research on the family myself as a cousin did it many years ago when we had to wait weeks for microfiche to come from the USA and then strain eyes to read it all in a short time before they were returned. The internet has made a big difference and we have discovered/confirmed things that were in her notes but not a certainty at the time. I can now go and check things with Scotland's People if I have to as she is not as comfortable with the computer as I am.
