Re: Rescivet - Chapel of Garioch, Aberdeenshire

I would still be interested in any Allan's buried in chapel of Garioch - any info you have would be gratefully received. My James Allan was born Chapel of Garioch in ...

His origins of birth are not proven, but I think he originates from Rosehearty. He is one of my brick walls. If he was a master cooper he must have served an apprenticeship some...

Re: Uniforms

I've been waiting for POW info for a long time and now have found info on my great uncle who was reported as missing in action on 13 Nov 1916. Great site Heather and even better being free.
