65 year old planning a trip to visit ancestors locations
I am a 65-year old Canadian who has been researching his ancestry for the past 3 years.
I have traced my paternal line back through numerous families (Hart, Sinclair, Walker, McNeil, Gardiner, Orr, Chalmers, Waddle,
Steel, Pitkethly, MciLvredi, Sorlie, Hunter, Smyton, Lyon, Tran, Shearer, Peock) ........through locations including: Aidrie, Paisley, Muthill,
Kirkintilloch, Abernethy, Inchture, Auchterarder, Perth
I'm hoping to visit for one month in the fall (Sept/Oct) 2017 and would like to rent a small one-bedroom cottage as a home-base from which
to visit these locations - to visit the graveyards, street addresses and see the towns....soak up the atmosphere...
Any advice/suggestions you have I am wide open....
