Hi just started doing my family tree and have had no luck with my grandfathers side of the family, his name was Allan Mitchell born 1911 in the fyvie area of Aberdeenshire. His parents were Allan Mitchell and Mary-Towler Chalmers. I believe the names could have been Allan Mitchell Coutts or Allan Coutts Mitchell but somewhere along the way the Coutts has been dropped. Any information on Mitchell's or Coutts from the fyvie area please help! Allan Mitchell and Mary Towler Chalmers had five children William Mitchell who married Lena James Mitchell who married Margaret Elizabeth Mitchell who married John Moir Margaret Mitchell who married Hugh Burr and Allan Mitchell who Married Agnes Napier
