Hi Leah, Like you, I have a family tradition that we are related to Jean Armour, but as yet I haven't made the connection either. Earlier in this thread Jan Stapleton has made a posting, and she has lots of information which I feel sure she wouldn't mind sharing with you if you email her: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a good booklet of Burns family trees which also has the descendents of James (Jean's father) and Adam (Jean's brother) Armour; it is called "Genealogical Charts of the Family of Robert Burns" and it was published by the Burns Federation in 1997. You might be able to get it if you write to them: The Burns Federation, Dick Institute, Elmbank Avenue, Kilmarnock, Scotland, KA1 3BU (phone 01563-572469). Or you could check at www.robertburns.org; they may have it for sale or have some information you could use. Good luck!
