Hi Nicol Nice to hear from you. Are you on Ancestry.com. If you send me your email address I can give you access to my tree. Are you from the Australian branch of the Kindness family. I am in Brisbane.
Sorry forgot to give you my email address. [email protected]
Hello Maree - Thankyou for your early response
I have recently retired and although I have tickled the genealogy tree for several years - I need to revisit and tidy up and concentrate a little more
I have no direct access to Ancestry .com but can get access through the Aberdeen Genealogy Society.

We live in the North East of Scotland and this I believe is a major source of many Kindnesses in the world . Many emigrated to Canada, USA and Australia and married there , therefore it can be difficult to track the female line
My tree ( Kindnesses and others ) consists of 2-3 thousand names.
I was born in MAcduff , Banffshire . My Father James born Banff. My Grandfather born , Gamrie Banffshire, Gt Grandfather and also Gt Gt Grandfather Andrew both born Gamrie/Gardenstown Parish Aberdour or King Edward . Gt Gt Gt I believe born Aberdour , farmed at New byth but I have struggled to prove this link other than circumstantial. His Father Alexander I believe born parish of Tyrie
These Kindnesses mainly farmers in the are between the towns of Macduff and Fraserburgh, Scotland
I have traced many side shoots - Brothers sisters etc etc also
In the past I have limited data regarding Australia - I have found 2 family names on the Kindness female side ie Hepburn and Munday both settled in NZ and Aus . I do however suspect that although I have some of my kin being born here, If they have emigrated I have not connected
So I hope you/I can perhaps solve some missing persons
Hope to hear from you
