Dear sldinn, Hi there. Firstly a warm welcome to FamilyTreeCircles.

You should be able to find your DINN and CLARK / CLARKE families on the 1841 Census. Join up as a new member of rootschat.com (have the same username as on familytreecircles) and post a census lookup request at RootsChat.com - Scotland - Fife. As Burntisland appears to be in Fife, link is for Fife board.

Regarding the CURRY surname, check back frequently at the surname wiki page on the homepage at familytreecircles and when I get time I'll create links for this surname. Maybe you can find out more from ancestry.com or by purchasing birth, death, marriage certificates of Elizabeth CURRY.

Also, please click on YOUR PROFILE and in your surname registration section, put a commar between CLARK and CLARKE so as to make them clickable and searchable links. There are quite a few CLARK researchers with journals here on familytreecircles and this surname is listed in the top surnames section.

Hi sldinn. I am also researching the James and Elizabeth... they are my husband's great great grandparents. Thier son John married Elva Holmes and they had James Holmes Dinn (my husband's grandfather). I was so excited to come across your post. I had no idea James came to the US so young!!! Now we are wondering why? We are told records will be hard to find in Scotland because they burned. I know your post is quite old, stll hoping to get a response.
