I am a beginner in this and from bits and pieces I have collected from elder family members, most of whom have passed away, I am trying to fit the pieces together.
I have read all posts here and recognize the last names of these people but cannot figure out how they all fit, if at all. I know the names Airth, Black, Jamieson, Barr, come from my paternal grandmother's side. I am trying to figure out how I fit in to the Airth's.My great aunt has had a picture of Airth Castle in Scotland hanging in her home for as long I can remember and it has held a fascination for me.
I am Jennifer Woodside (Nee Grace) born 1971.
My father is Norman Jamieson Grace (1946).
My grandmother's name was Ivie Mae Jamieson (1910), married to Charles Nathaniel Grace. She had 7 brothers and sisters: (Sarah)Isabel (1905) married to Brent Cox of West Virginia, USA, Marguerite Helen married to Robert Ross, Marion Elizabeth married to Gerald Millar of Pembroke, William James (1913) married to Margaret Else, Jean Airth (1915) married to Stewart Bingham of Forrester Falls, Grace Bryson (1917) married to James Rolland Brown and HarryAlexander (1922) married to Gracie Oates.
Their parents where Marian (Myrn) Black (1878-1947) and Harry Jamieson (1878-1953).
Before this comes William Black (1844-1929) and Margaret Mackay (1850-1931)(daughter of Owen macKay and Brigid Dolingham).
William Balck's parents were James Black (1807-1885) and Agnes Bryson (1808-1902).
