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.

My Email - [email protected] and my wife's is [email protected]

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
