Hi flst and Lell

I have intended to look into Benjamin's asylum records since connecting his death certificate with this puzzle (some time ago now!) but just haven't had the chance to pop up to Dundee.  I hope to do so in the not too distant future as the records may well hold a key...

I make no promises about when I'll get there, but I will at some point, and I'll keep you all informed.  ;D

Hello.  Are there still folk on here interested in Balharry?  Ross my son is in Chile just now and met up with people who have Balharry history and I promised to dig out what I can by way of a family tree. 

My father had a box file of info which Ive used to create a tree in MacFamilyTree which now goes back to late 1600's along our line.  I think I have the connection to Chile as being through a David Balharry born 1806.  Who was associated with a Mrs Leffre possible maiden name Goffrey.

None of this is primary information simply records compiled by others.

Anyway it prompted me to do some digging into the Balharry's around the late 1600's to see how far back records knowledge existed.  Based on that there seems to have been a number of families within 9 miles of Balharry house at this time (Newtyle, Coupar Angus, Glamis, Collace, Glen Isla, Airlie).  Our line connect in here somewhere and I wondered if anyone else has tried to make connections this far back? 

In hope

David
