Hello world!

May 10, 2009

Its really the world of people with family names like Crichton, Johnston, Torrie and Laing that I’m interested in.

If you are on the web researching your family history we might have encountered one another by now.  Those of you that I have met on sites like Genes Reunited, so far, have been very helpful, but we have run into a brick wall where my late grandmother, Ruth Crichton (nee Johnston, b. Glasgow 1893) is concerned.

By joining Word Press I’m hoping to reach those of you who, knowing more perhaps than you realise, are not yet into family history.  For me this is more than adding names and dates to a family tree, its about unravelling a mystery that impacted on my father’s life, my mother’s life and that of her parents, and my sister and I while we were growing up.
