Hello.
I found your website when I googled Jane Rodger Pollock who you have as married to Hugh Campbell Muirhead Sharp. I am very interested to know if you have any records of Jane's birth because I cannot find one anywhere.
There is a bit of a controversy in the family as to whether Jane actually existed or whether it was her sister Janet Amos Pollock who married Hugh. All three of her marriage certificates show her name as Jane but in Scotland someone named Janet could be known as Jane. The family in NZ knew her as Aunty Jean, which just adds to the confusion as both Janet and Jane can be called Jean as a nickname.
I have digital copies of the birth certificates of all the Pollock children except Jane but there are a number of things that I am confused about and would very much like to discuss further with you via email
Hoping to hear from you
Devorah :)

Admin reply: Hi, Devorah —

Thanks for visiting my website. I don't know how much help I can be to solving this controversy, but I'll send you a direct email and we can discuss the matter. Expect to hear from me soon!

cheers,

My grandfather, James Alexander Sim, was born in Banff, Scotland, not New Zealand.He went to sea about aged 13 ending up in New Zealand. He worked on a railway tunnel through the North Island. He enlisted in the NZ Army and fought in WW1. Was gassed at the Somme and was was left with one lung. Returned to Scotland after the war, but finding it too cold for him he returned to New Zealand. My grandmother, Mary Thompson was on the same boat with her mother and one of her sisters. Mary was on her way out to marry but decided my grandfather was more to her liking and married him instead. Her sister returned to Scotland. My great-grandmother died the same day as Mary's first child, Elizabeth was born in 1923. She is buried in the New Plymouth cemetery.

Admin reply: Hi, Johan — Thanks for visiting my website, and for the updates on your grandfather. Unfortunately, the email address you gave me bounced, but I'd very much like to correspond with you. Please use the link at the bottom of the page to contact me directly. Thank you!

Edna KAUFMAN (B. 1873 Illinois D. 1953 The Dalles)

Stumbled across your website while I was researching some of my family that moved to Oregon. I see you have Edna's last name as unknown. Edna was born as Edna M. DOYLE. Daughter to Michael DOYLE and Sylinda BEERS. Michael DOYLE was the son of Patrick DOYLE and Eleanor GRAHM from the Franklin County, PA (actually Chambersburg, PA). My 3rd GGF, Isaac DOYLE was a brother to Patrick DOYLE. There is a nice history of the family in this Book
"An Illustrated History of Central Oregon: Embracing Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam, Wheeler, Crook, Lake, and Klamath Counties, State of Oregon". (page 406). There is a Google Digital version of this book.

Wondering how you are related...and if we could possibly be related.
:D

Admin reply: Hi, Patty!

Thanks for visiting my website.

Sometime in the last couple of months (since I last updated my website), I did learn that Edna's maiden name was Doyle. But I didn't know who her parents were or that her family was mentioned in the Illustrated History of Central Oregon. Thank you for the update — I appreciate it a lot, and you'll see the changes once I update my pages again (probably in about a month or so).

Unfortunately, we connect on opposite sides of the tree, so we're not related ourselves. Your connection is through the Doyles, obviously. My connection is through the wife of Adam and Edna's son Tolbert, Mildred Friedley. She's my 3rd cousin twice removed.

Best wishes in your family research!

P.S. I don't know if you're a member of Ancestry or not, but they have a digitized version of The History of Wasco County, Oregon — you might find that book helpful too.

I stumbled across your website looking for information about my grandfather, Winfield Scott Neal, and his marriage to Gladys Cobbs Messinger. I found a California Marriage License for Scott Neal and Gladys Cobbs Messinger. It shows that they were married in Los Angeles on December 4, 1929 when Gladys was 22 and Scott was 29. The 1930 Census shows Gladys and Scott living in Seattle, Washington, with his mother and siblings. I assume that Gladys and Scott were divorced sometime between 1930 and 1934, which is when Scott Neal married my grandmother, Rose Marie Baker. Scott Neal was born December 13, 1899, in Boise, Idaho, and died October 6, 1976, in Boise, Idaho. Do you know when Scott and Gladys were divorced and where they lived at that time. I can't find any divorce records.

Admin reply: Hi, Joseph! Thanks for visiting my website, and for sharing your information on your grandfather. Not only did it fill in some blanks on one of my relative's husbands, but it also revealed some errors in other data I had. So, thank you for that.

Unfortunately, I also was unable to find any divorce records. Did you get a copy of the marriage certificate between Gladys and Scott, though?

I will contact you directly by email soon.

cheers,

Hi Kristy,

My Great grandfather was George Haining Lyle m(1860 - 1942). His grandson Robert D. Lyle (1920 - present) is my dear-old-Dad. I am pulling together as much family history on the Catrine, Scotland Lyles as I can while Dad is with us to enjoy the history. He tells stories of George Haining Lyle regaling him with tales of kite-flying in Scotland as a boy, and how George H. rolled his Rrrrs when calling him (Rrrrrrobert my boy....) I would be happy to share the Lyle/Haining information I have on hand if it would be of interest. Thanks! Jonathan Lyle

Admin reply: Hi, Jonathan!

It's very nice to hear from you. I'll send you an email directly very soon, but I should caution you that how all the Hainings connect in the mid-1700s is still a bit theoretical at this point. I got tired of keeping separate databases on Hainings that I believed to be related, and so I eventually linked them into one tree even though the relationship is not fully proven at this point in time.

Anyway, everything from George Haining and Agnes Muir and on down is proven. As is everything from James Haining and Jean Currie on down. What is NOT proven is that George and James are brothers. I have an alternate theory where they are cousins...

I'll write to you soon!

cheers,
Kirsty Haining

Lloyd Brown was my maternal Grandfather. My mother was Janet Sharon Brown (Langley, Bolinder, Kilgore, Krigbaum, Whited, Huff, Keller) just a few names there...
Twin sister to Jackolyn Sharol Brown.

Admin reply: Hi, Cynthia!

It's very nice to hear from you and Wren. You say your mother "was" — am I to understand that she is deceased? If so, you have my condolences.

I will write to you directly soon.

cheers,
your 3rd cousin,

Kirsty Haining

:D

P.S. Happy New Year!

My maternal grandfather was Lloyd Hubert Brown. My mother was one of three children he had with Sally Charlotte Fern GRIFFITH. The oldest was Kenneth BROWN (I'll have to get his birth and death date for you). My mother is Janet Sharon BROWN, twin sister to Jackolyn Sharol BROWN, who is the only child showing on your site.

Admin reply: Hi, Wren —

I'm delighted to hear from you and your sister. We are 3rd cousins. The reason you only see the name for your aunt Jackolyn is because, of course, to my knowledge she is the only one in your family from that generation who is deceased. In fact, both your mother and you are in my tree (but of course you show up as "Living";).

I will write to you directly very soon. In the meantime, let me wish you a very Happy New Year!

cheers,

Hi!
Thanks for uploading your family tree! It's help me a lot to fill in some blanks. Do you happen to have any more information on James Alfred McLane. He'd be my Great great grandfather... who is he to you?
James Leslie was his son. J. Leslie married Maragret (meyer) McLane. Their kids were Stanley, Clarissa, Lorraine Francis, Frances C, Jerome Mclane.

Stanley McLane Married my grandma Betty Lou McLane
They had 5 kids.
Richard, Sharleen, Lou Ann, Cindy, Kevin.
Richard/rick passed away in 2009 from cancer.

Admin reply: Hi, Danielle —

Happy New Year! You are connected on the "in law" side of my tree. Your great-great grandfather James Alfred McLane had a son, William Lester McLane (1879-1959), who married my first cousin three times removed, Rosetta Mae Moore (1881-1959). Although we are not related ourselves, all the descendants of William and Rosetta are our mutual cousins. In fact, one of our mutual cousins will also be delighted to hear from you!

I will contact you by direct email very soon.

cheers,
