RALPH Surnames
« on: Friday 26 September 14 03:15 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I'm looking into RALPH surnames from Nairn, Scotland. It seems they were all fisherman and sea-men and women. Is there any descendants left from the Alexander through to James Ralph times, they were living down at the old section of Nairn, and some seen to be buried at the Old Nairn Cemetery???

If you haven't already done so, a good way to make surname connections with other members is to enter your surname interests in the Surname Interests Table (SIT), and to check there whether others are researching these names. 

This can be found at http://surname.rootschat.com/ , there is a link to it under "Your Tools" at the bottom of each Rootschat page.

The more people who enter their surnames, the more chance there will be of making a connection!

In the meantime, I will move this thread to the Nairnshire board for more local knowledge.
