I am not a historian
I have not been researching my family history
So I am not a member of any Ancestry site.
However a couple of months ago through sheer fluke I saw post on google dated 2004 asking for. information re my grandmother and her siblings.
To cut a long story short I am in touch with a lovely cousin several times removed
There is a family story that my forefathers owned a farm in Ayrshire late 1800s/ early 1900s
but this conflicts with some info my cousin has.
Any thoughts would be welcome as I am complete novice.

Just what I was wondering!
My MIL's family farmed in Ayrshire for many generations. Would you like to PM me perhaps?
