I ask your patience with me... I've read through some of the posts and I really don't know where to start..
I haven't all that much information. This is what I know:
My grandfather's name is Hugh Aikman and he came to Canada in the 1920's? (Winnipeg, Manitoba, I think) with his brothers Kenneth, James, Gordon and perhaps another. I believe they were from Glasgow originally.
I don't know if this rings any bells to anyone, but I'm very curious. I cannot seem to get any answers out of my own family and my grandfather is dead now. This makes me think maybe there's something to hide, which makes me all the more curious.
