Hi Annie,
I’m so sorry I didn’t realise, just copying some notes on “things to look up”.

There’s this with it? 041/3/11

Ahh yes, I believe he was born late May 1902.
Sorry I’ve not done any Scottish research before.

Thank you so much for your very interesting reply. Elizabeth Anne Fraser’s history has been my brick wall for so long! and now with DNA her apparent link to the Isle of Lewis is very intriguing…I suppose I’ll just have to keep on digging 😁

My 3xggrandmother is Elizabeth Ann Fraser b. 1795 Berbice Guyana. She married William Brunner in 1818 Birmingham England. I do not know who her parents were.
Through ancestry DNA I am connected via maternal side to many people (not many trees) but they all have Isle of Lewis in common some of them have 100% very recent ancestors from here, same family names crop up especially one line ‘Angus of the river MacDonald’.
I have been trying to find a connection between my Fraser and the Isle of Lewis. I am sure it is my Fraser line because all other lines can be traced further back to other areas in England.
I googled and found this thread on roots chat that looks like ‘Angus of the river’ McDonald’s grandmother (likely wife of Ranald MacDonald)may have been widowed and subsequently married a Fraser.
So thought I would investigate this theory further.
I realise this thread is from 2015 and a lot can change in that time so delighted that you have replied!
*sorry if I have confused things, the original post I saw was ‘Ranald MacDonald of Baleshare, North Uist, about 1750.

I would love know if there were any children from Donald Fraser and Marion MacDonald?

Armed Forces / Re: Life in the military question

Thank you all so much for your lightening quick replies!
She was not of the same class or connected to the military in any way at all as far as I can tell, although the pub scenario sounds likely!

Armed Forces / Life in the military question

I’m so sorry if this is a strange question but I know absolutely nothing about military life.
Trying to piece together some family history so please excuse my cryptic question...
This would be post WW2. What would be the most likely scenario for a military person of very high rank, stationed in their native country, to meet and have a relationship with a (younger) person totally unrelated with the military?

Australia / Re: Census lookup help please HIGGINSON
« on: Wednesday 26 July 17 11:28 BST (UK)  »
Thank you so much everyone - I'm very grateful for all your efforts 😁 I'm pretty sure this is our Charles Higginson. It's quite a complicated and sad story (as they often are) ... so now I'm going to take this all back to my friend and see if they want me to continue with the English Higginsons, and also whether they would like to take the Ancestry DNA test- which has been very successful for me!
