Wonder if anyone could help me, im looking to trace my mothers family.
My mother Betsy EA Byrnes had the following siblings:
Margaret Rose
Her Mother was called Margaret Byrnes Nee Smith.
Her Parents were May Smith and James Ross Smith.
All from Methil and Kirkaldy, Fife.
If anyone has any info as to my ancestry I would be extremely greatful.
thanks in advance.
