Following my earlier posting and the two e-mail messages that I have sent to you, I confirm that I have now spoken on the telephone to the "Deas" contact in Glenfarg.This lady strongly believes that she is related to your family by marriage and has kindly agreed to prepare and send me some notes concerning her knowledge of the Deas Family.This may take some days. However, as soon as these are received I will e-mail them on to you and your Family.
She also mentioned that some members of the Deas family (possibly cousins?) emigrated to South Africa and I confirm my e-mailed suggestion to you that you post a similar notice on the Genforum website for South Africa.
Please also confirm either on this website or by reply e-mail whether or not you have now received my two e-mail messages.
I am now hopeful that before long it will be possible for you to contact one or more of the relations that you are seeking in Scotland.
