It is comforting to know that there is family out there.I am an only child.As a novice to genealogy, the sources I have are from LDS Family History Centers and personal knowledge and close family documents.
My printer is down and out for the count, so I must send everything snail-mail.I live in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.

P.S.Practically all of my Adamson antecedents hail from Boreland, Fifeshire, Scotland.What I would give to visit there, but, alas, lack of funds and recent health concerns.
