The David Cowie Family, Scotland and Eastern Europe Updated February 27, 2001
About Our Family Research
I am interested in compiling information regarding my late grandfathers family, David Cowie, born 9 September 1909, died 8 December 1977. I have recently found out that we may have had connections in Eastern Europe, primarily Poland. My grandfather had 2 sons, Alexander Kerr Cowie and Edward Russell Stewart Cowie. During his life he resided in Grangemouth, Carluke, Dunoon and Dundee in Scotland. I believe he had a brother who emigrated to South Africa in the 40's or 50's but so far have nothing to confirm this. Due to deaths, divorces and family issues it has been difficult to gain any further information other than the above. Unfortunately I have been unable to find any official records regarding his birth and would be grateful for any information I am able to compile. I look forward to hearing from any distant relations I may have.
