my family tree
How my research started it was a curiosity with some letters that belonged to great granny Gourlay. She was trying to find information on the Anderson’s family from Orkney and was interested in the Orcadian newspaper this got me underway and wondering what the connection was. I started by asking family members if they knew anything or had any documents or Photographs that may help. (Thanks to all that helped)I then did some searching through the Scotlands People  collecting a few certificates on the way.
The  Connection worked out as My Grandmother was the great great granddaughter of Magnus Anderson Founder of the Orcadian in Orkney.
