Hello:
I am the great granddaughter of Captain James Myles who was born in Ceres, Fife, in 1825. He married my great grandmother Susan Crofts of Dundee in 1857 and we have some of the letters he sent to her from his round the world voyages that are quite fascinating. I will be in touch again when your new season of events starts in the autumn. I am rarely in Scotland but very interested in these family connections.
All the best,
Maida Macdonald Stadtler

Hello. I'm the administrator of the Orrick DNA project at FTDNA.

Orricks have been in the US since 1650.
Histories say that they came from Fife where they were known as ORROCK.
Y-DNA is showing connection to O'Rourke of Ireland but this doesn't
mean that they didn't go through Fife as Orrock.

So, I'm trying to find a living male ORROCK who is confident of his
lineage in Fife back to 1650 to test. Would appreciate any help you
can offer.

My parents, Donald Sutherland Clark and Wilheminia Dryburgh Mackie, were both born in Leven, Fife in 1907. I grew up hearing stories of Leven and the surrounding area. It is part of my earliest memory and I still feel drawn to my ancestry there.

I have a 3 volume set of Haweis' Bible which has come to me through the family.It contains a registry page for the Scott family. John b. 1814 in Auchtermuchty; wife Margaret Oatts b.1815 Torryburn. Their 8 children:-
John b.1837, Ann Hassower b1840-died 1843, twins margaret and Isabella 1842, Henry 1844. All born at Torryburn. Another Ann Hassower b 1847, at Haugh Mills Windygate, Robert b 1849 at Kinghorn, Elizabeth b 1853 (unreadable)
I have no idea where these people fit into the family, and although this a is a complete longshot if anyone recognises these names or connections I would be very pleased to hear from them.

DUNCAN: We are looking for cemetery records/monument inscriptions for our grandparents Robert DUNCAN (1859 - 1941) and Jane Boucher (nee HONEYMAN) DUNCAN (1859 - 1923). We know that Jane died in Canada but her remains were, supposedly, interred in Dunfermline (name of cemetery not known). Would also like to know the burial place/monument inscriptions for three of their six sons, William (1882 - 1936), Robert Honeyman (1884 - 1963) and Alexander Boucher (1897 - 1962) who are all supposed to be buried at Dunfermline (again, name of cemetery is not known). The other three sons emigrated to North America -- John (1888 - 1940) is buried at Brownvale, Alberta, Canada; James Honeyman (1890 - 1954) is buried at Du Page, Illinois, USA; and David (1896 - 1970) is buried at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

We have managed to obtain from Scotlands People copies of birth, marriage and death records for almost all of the above mentioned people. But, due to the fact we live in Canada it's difficult to get details of burial for those to died in Scotland.

Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you all in advance.

Am trying to due some family research. It is believed that my Great Grandfather John McLiverty emigrated from Scotland to British Honduras. Church records and other historical records were destroyed in a hurricane.
I have found 1851 and 1861 record with our name in Kirkcaldy Fife and in
Dundee (Angus). He was married to a Hannah Hunt McLiverty who died in January 1897 in the British Honduras. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
