Hello to all the Baird & families etc. I have some details of my Motherís side of the family. Mumís name was Jane Crichton Baird she was born in Kirkcaldy on 20th March 1936. She also had a brother Alexander Joseph Dewar Baird who was also born in Kirkcaldy on 5th March 1934.By reading this forum it could be possible that Joseph Baird who died in December 1940 could be their father. All my mum told me as I was growing up was that he died whilst on a minesweeper during war. Any further info would be brilliant.

Thank you very much for info Brian. I have never tried any sort of research into my Mumís family(Baird). It was lovely to come across this forum last night. Many thanks for your reply,I am very grateful to you.I can also remember relations coming to our house who lived in Dunfermline.From what my Mum told me she & her brother were put in an orphanage at a young age. I hope this is of help to you or anybody interested.

Thanks for the info Sid.I would love to find out whether Joseph Baird would have been my Grandfather. I think I will try & find out as much as I can. From what I can remember. I think Mums cousins/aunt came to visit us when I was quite young. I think there was a Christine & also a Jane,am pretty sure Dunfermline is where they lived. But iím probably talking about the seventies!
