Hey, Sanna, thanks for responding. Do you know if this Janet's father was Thomas Purdie that was connected with Sir Walter Scott? My family lore says that the castle beloning to Scott was Melrose Abbey, where my GGG grdad died, but things I've looked up on Scott say he was from Abbotsford. Where do you find the truth about these things? My cousin has been into geno for a long time and I get my info from him. Cindy
