A warm welcome from the North East of Scotland to my family history web site. I am James Lawrie Milne, my wife is Linda Joyce Grant, and this site contains some information about our known ancestors and their descendants.

I first became interested in family history in 1994 when I stumbled across a family history program on a free floppy disk with a computer magazine. I started to input some basic information about my immediate family, and have been hooked ever since. My research has taken us from the North East of Scotland to Ireland, Canada, U.S.A., South Africa, India and Australia with undoubtedly, links to more countries waiting to be discovered.

This internet version of our family history does not include information for any living person, other than name, and lists only Birth, Marriage and Death information for those that are no longer with us. I have additional information about many of the people listed, and may be willing to exchange data, on a one to one basis, with other family members. As my research is ongoing, updates and changes to this web site can be expected, usually at the end/start of a month.

I would like to thank everyone who has very kindly shared their own information with me. Their help is very much appreciated and I look forward to their continuing friendship.

I would be delighted to hear from anyone who shares an ancestor with our own, or has some information or corrections which they wish to highlight. Click on my name below to send me an e-mail. In the meantime I hope you enjoy browsing through our family tree.
