Hi everyone

Hi Hazel
I know (*). Her dad James (Jimmy) Stevenson  was a cousin to my grannie.  Jimmy died 2 or 3 years ago. Jimmy's parents were David (Davie) & Annie. Are you on facebook? I'm on it and I'm friends with (*) - would you want to contact her yourself through that?
I spoke to your auntie (*) a couple of weeks ago - I also knew your dad and all the rest of the family when I was growing up but we've all kinda lost touch over the years.
Hope this helps

Could you by any chance, obtain photos of David Stevenson and Jessie Hynds for inclusion in my charts.

Cheers.

Hi Hazel I'm tryin to locate pics of the family - as you prob know I want to do this for my mum & dads 50th weddin. I started years ago but everytime I picked it up someone died (thats happened again this time too - its gettin spooky!!) The thing that really made me want to do it again - you're gonna hate me for this but I came in from work 1 day to find my pup had gotten a hold of the pics I'd managed to get & chewed them to bits' I was sickened - there must have been bout 10 old pics' Sorry

Hi Robert & Hazel (& any1 else out there who may be interested)
Ive been havin rake at my mum & dads house & (sorry 2 tease u here) I came across a newspaper artice (what I've got is a very old photo-copy I think)which tells of the 50th anniversary of William Stevenson & Mary Forsyth. The story tells of how theyve lived at the sink most -if not all- of their married life.   My new laptop doesnt seem to want to recognise my scanner. Ive downloaded the programme but I need 1 of my bairns to install it cos Im totally useless with computers. I will get this scanned & copied onto the site asap

Robert
you seem to have loads of pics of the family? Can I ask a huge huge favour please - can u post the pics of the people in my line seperately? What I want to do is get as many pics as poss - even if they're prints/copies of the computer - so I can place them on the illustration Im makin for my mum & dad 4 their 50th on the 25th march. I would really appreciate it if you could - might need to pm me them???  Thanks

Dunno why its taken me so long but Ive jist worked out where we're connected (you've prob worked it out already!? My dad Alexander W Montgomery was full cousins with your gran Annie Davidson. My dads mum Elizabeth Laird Stevenson (ma grannie) was sister to your g grandad (William Stevenson) Why has it taken me so long to figure that yin oot???!!! xxx
