After some time off I'm doing Ireland and Scotland as the going back this particular line they went from Scotland to Ireland and then bounced around different parts of Ireland.
Borlands from Scotland, Hiltons from England & Platts from England at this stage. Have others to look for as well at some stage :)

Hello Liz,
This information on Malcolm MacIntosh is fascinating as I have tried many times to find the location of the farm he was on. He was also my Great Uncle!

Hi & thanks for the opportunity.
I am interested and researching particularly Ivan Boyd's career in Bengal & Bombay Police in India between 1902 - 1930 who was a Superintendent & later Assistant Commissioner.

Many thanks

I've done research for Germany, England, Ireland and Scotland. Did find out that one of my lines actually began in France and then went to England/Scotland and then to Ireland.

My research is predominantly in England and Wales and have gone back at least five generations (which I accept is not far compared to some). The names all seem very Anglo Saxon and white in terms of skin colour.  However, my Grandfather (1900-1977)  from a couple of photos seemed to have a very Mediterranean look about him, which my father commented on a couple of times.
