Hello Meredith,
I am still new to Family Tree Circles and not sure what's going on. I THOUGHT I had sent a response to you but I can't find it, so sorry if this is a repeat. I am researching the family of Alexander BEATTIE and Jane ANDERSON and came across your posts on the HARKERS, which I have found very helpful. I'd love to share my research with yours.

Please read my journal entry about Alexander and Jane.
