My name is James J Gilland Jr. I saw your posting and am interested in finding my family origin. I am 50 years old. My fathers name is James also and my grandfather was named George, and his father name was Willum, we think they migrated to Germany during the potato famine in Scottland or Ireland, and from there to this country. I was born in St. Paul MN. as well as my father but I'm not sure where my grandpa george was from, I know he had two brothers named Harold and Bill.
Let me know if any of this rings a bell. Thanks Jim Gilland Jr. email@example.com
