In Reply to: Mein family from Scotland by Cynthia Brown of 42

Hi Cynthia,

I am researching Mein in East Lothian - have a look at my website

There appear to have been many Mein families around the Lothians in the 19thc. My particular line changed their name to Main in the mid-19thc. Maybe others did the same - possibly to avoid the 'German' connection.
