Re: Problem with My Heritage

Dear Lorna, It is indeed good to be in touch again! I'm so sorry for the loss of your sister. I thought that Easton Girdwood was an individual! So no wonder I couldn't find him :roll: I now see the tree you mention. Martha Matthews(1906-1972) married Robert Clelland Girdwood (1907-1994) in 1934 in U...

In another 3 years it will be online (assuming she was born in Scotland) but in the meantime, you or a friend might have taken a look on a visit to Edinburgh.
