I would be interested to hear from anyone who thinks they may be related to a James Mearns born in 1896 or 1897 in Scotland. He is my grandfather, but it is known that he had many children by different women around England & Scotland, the youngest being my father, Ian MacDonald Mearns (b.1945). I believe he also had a son in Gateshead/Newcastle area who would be around 77 now (d.1996 I believe).
Any information at all would be most appreciated!!
