East Lothian (Haddingtonshire) / census look up for william young
« on: Sunday 17 November 13 15:40 GMT (UK)  »
Hello , I have not been online for a long time and I am still not very good with websites so sorry if I am in the wrong place or if my request is a bit vague.

I have had some poems sent to me by one of my recently discovered uncles , on the top of one of the poems is written " this poem was about my grannies brother " . I have telephoned my uncle as we live to far away to visit as often as I would like . I asked him if he could tell me any more about this part of his (my )family history . He is 91 and gets very excited and confused if I ask to many questions and I wondered if anyone on rootschat can help me.

The real name of the man in the poem is William Young and he was a scaffie ( i looked it up to be street sweeper ) in East Linton but I do not know the dates. My uncle Thomas John Hunter Auld lived in the upstairs rooms of a house in East Linton and his granny and grandad lived downstairs .

The poem is called the presentation and was written by Robert Anderson.

Any new information would be great.  The worst thing to hear was my uncle Tom was given a family tree , he can not remember who gave it to him but sadly he said he thought it was full of "tinkers" and he destroyed it.  :'(

East Lothian (Haddingtonshire) / burial places Auld family
« on: Monday 26 July 10 15:28 BST (UK)  »
Hi, Hope I have posted this in the right place.
I am hoping to travel to Edinburgh in a couple of months and I would like to find out anything about the Auld family,Also where any of the Auld family were laid to rest.
The names I would most like to find are John Auld & his wife Kathrine. Sorry this is not much information  but I do not know anything about them yet apart from they had six children around 1920-1930ish one has already died and another I have found is too ill at present so I do not want to pester him.
I believe they may have been farmers but I do not know where.
Sorry it is not much to go on,but I know how helpful  you people are so I thought it might be worth asking.
Many thanks
