I just know that when I was doing my family tree I was getting really frustrated and found it was always easier if you had someone that had a fresh set of eyes that hadn't been looking at the same information for a year or so and got nowhere - alot of people on GR helped me and my mum when we were doing out family research.

Hi Emma,
Another request for you please.
Looking for details of Joshua Wells married to Elizabeth Neil. He was supposed to have been a Sergeant of the 27th Foot Regiment.
His son William was born in 1829 in I think Blantyre.
Any info greatly appreciated.



IanPJS Report 29 May 2010 05:36

Hi Emma,
Thanks very much for the info. The birth in 1863 seems to be the correct one as Thomas did have a brother John. I will now try and find further details of this family.
Thanks again, Ian

Any information you have on her parents - even just names would be useful?

Hi Emma I was wondering if you could look up Alexander Carcary 1897 I would like to find out who his parents were he was born in Angus Scotland.

I would also like to ask if you could look up Andrew Carcary c 1906 (I think his second name may have been Milne not sure though) his parents were David Carcary and Betsy Gold I would like to know when he was born died and who he married.

Would really appreciate that thanking you in advance



Natalie Report 30 May 2010 14:49

Thankyou Emma for getting back to me.

I have no information at all, as Margaret died when my father was 23 BUT I have just found out that she was INFACT born around 1925!!! So sorry for the wild Goose Chase!
It certainly does teach you to get all the facts before you start this:)

Thanks again & kind regards!
