A bit of digression but brebner.com has zillions (well maybe not quite that many) Breber/Bremner/etc... records.

I see not its not running at the moment perhaps John is doing an update of sorts.  You can always email John he was born in Aberdeen and he was very good at responding.

I'm having a problem attaching the photo of the gravestone of George Crighton, Margaret Brebner and Rachel Crighton. I'll have to try again.

Meanwhile, I think that George and Margaret Brebner had quite a large family:
Peter (1812 -?)
George (1815 -?)
Mary (1815 -?)
William (1816 -?)
James (1819 -?)
Alexander (1821-1902)
Bathia (1832 -1921)
Rachel (1834 - 1919)

Hope that helps.

Good plan. Especially as you will never get to the end of what is possible.

My advice is, keep your research permanently offline. If you put it online, it will be pirated and splattered all over the place; you will give A******y a free gift of all your hard work. Share it carefully with family members only.

I have put the bare bones of mine (i.e. my direct ancestors only) on various sites. That way anyone who is related can get in touch, but I don't get bombarded by people who have no chance of being provably related. Along the lines of, "I see that your 4ggmother was Margaret Smith born 1780 in Aberdeen. My 2ggfather was John Smith born 1860 in Birmingham. Are we related?"
Never trust anything you find online (especially submitted trees and transcriptions on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and other commercial web sites) unless it's an image of an original document - and even then be wary because errors can and do occur.

My Wife's G-G Grandparents were John Mutch & Eliza Buchan.
Their Daughter Elspet Chrighton Mutch (1870 - 1952) Married Alexander Leith (1864 - 1921) at Udny in 1891.
Their Daughter Williamina Munro Leith (1908 - 1983) Married John McKenzie (1902 -1957) at Belhelvie in 1930

Any information you could share round this line would be much appreciated, as I've just got the bare bones outlined above

My Wife's middle names are Williamina Leith by the way.

If you are still looking for links to the Crightons of New Deer, I have just come across a baptism certificate for George Crighton (b 1846), in Montreal. He was the son of George Crighton, born 1815 and the son of George Crighton and Margaret Bremner.  (Lots of Georges, so this could get confusing...)

George (b 1815) was serving with the 93rd Highlanders (service record available on FindMyPast website if you are signed up) and served in Canada in the 1840s. He and his wife Isabella had two children while he was serving there - William (b 1843) and George (b 1846).

I have attached the certificate to a query I made in the Canada board, so I can't add it here, but you can track it down there.
