I'm researching my Dad's (Douglas George Guild b. 12/20/1920 Merrit, BC Canada) line back in the Forfar/Angus region of Scotland. Family 'myth' had us from Dundee, but records show Forfar. I've recently found some great information on www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk. Here's what I have beginning with my grandfather, Herbert Allan Ward Guild:
Herbert Allan Ward Guild b. 9/28/1883 (we had thought his birth year was 1888) Forfar, Scotland; d. 1/30/1948 Vancouver, BC Canada; Brother William Shand b. 8/17/1888 and Sister Mabel Campbell b. 2/18/1892. Herbert traveled to Canada on (Ithink) March 30, 1907 on the steamer Sicilian of the Allan Line Mail Steamers, departing Glasgow arriving Halifax. May have gone to Moosejaw, but I know he settled in Kamloops BC where he married Lydia Lindberg of Sweden, 12/20/1915.Three daughters born in Kamloops, Jean and twins Viola and Vera.Dad was born in Merrit before the family moved to Vancouver (date unknown).Douglas moved to Bellingham WA just after the Ssecond World War and later moved to Seattle where our family has been since the early 50's.
Herbert son of James Guild and Jane Ann (Linn) Guild, James & Jane Ann married 9/14/1882 in District of St. Vigeans. James residence posted as London; Jane Ann as District of St. Vigeans, County of Forfar.
James Guild son of William Guild d. 8/13/1871 and Mary Ann (Ogilvy) Guild d. 8/8/1887.
Jane Ann (Linn) Guild daughter of John Linn and Elizabeth (Campbell) Guild.
William Guild son of Abram (or Abraham?) Guild d. 6/17/1868 age 70 and Janet (Barry) Guild d. 1867 age 60. Abram & Janet married 10/28/1827 I think in Forfar.
Mary Ann (Ogilvy) Guild daughter of Peter & Mary Ogilvy. No further information at this time.
