I am seeking contact with any living descendant of the Dundee chief librarian Alexander (sometimes Andrew) Hastie Millar, born 25.11.1847 in Glasgow, died 27.2.1927 in his home on Forebank Road, Dundee. In an obituary in Dundee Advertiser 28.2.1927 is said that his father was Andrew Millar, a muslin manufacturer in Glasgow. His great-great-grandfather Robertson fled from Culloden at the age of 15 to France, married a daughter to Monsieur Milard, took her surname and returned to Kippen, Pertshire, later going to Glasgow.
A.H. Millar did about 1920 correspond with a genealogist in Finland about one of my ancestors origin in Scotland. Unfortunately no records from that conversation could be found at the Dundee library where he worked.
