George Leslie b 23/6/1831 Alyth
« on: Monday 23 November 09 20:56 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for information on the parents of George Leslie who was born in Alyth 23/6/1831.  He married a Margaret Morris and they lived in St Andrews where he was the landlord of the Golf Inn, 1 Golf Place between 1861 and 1866.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks

You can view details of the other children on the IGI as follows - suspect Manon is Margery

PARENT SEARCH ON IGI

www.familysearch.org - On home page - click on  “Advanced Search” to the right of the SEARCH button

Select “International Genealogical Index” from the left hand menu

Input fathers name and surname BUT only put mothers christian name as not all entries have the maiden name

REGION – select British Isles from the menu

COUNTRY – select Scotland

COUNTY (will appear when you select COUNTRY)  – select Perth

Starryskies,

My great aunt married James Leslie, the son of George Leslie and Margaret Morris.  James took over the running of the Golf Inn for a while after George retired.  Perhaps you would like to contact me off-line via a private message.

David.
