Did you say summer course? We are in the dead of winter right now, so you
much be in the south pacific. I'm up in snowy Ontario, Canada.
This map you bought sounds like something I could use. Where would I find an
Ordinance Survey map? I didn't realize the farm names would be on it. And
if this family did farm, I don't have the name of it, so perhaps it wouldn't
help me much. They left Scotland so early (1830's) that (I believe) the
only records available would be church ones, am I right?
Looking in my Archibald file, I see we corresponded in October. Also
Perhaps if you gave me the name (or number) of your map and the address of
the company, I could just write away for one.
I think my line goes like this-
John Archibald & Jean Cowan
William Archibald & Isabel Patterson - he came to Canada when he was almost
James Archibald & Jane (here in Canada).
So I need to go back further than John & Jean who married about 1762 in St.
Ninians and it looks like that is where they all stayed.
