Good luck on your quest

Hi Jill and welcome to Talking Scots

Thanks for the offer, but I know that your Alex Symon isn't mine, sadly, I can trace your one... :)

Things are on the back burner at the moment until I finish the degree I working next June, my family tree time is been eaten up with course work. :-({|= I am frightened to get a lead just now as I'll want to chase it and not study.

Thanks John for posting - it is the 3rd Alexander Symon that is mine, and still proving elusive :-( His reputed Grandfather is the same ;-) Thought my 3xGGrandmother would have known your 3xGGrandfather as they both came from Nether Dallachy.

I am still stuck more or less where I was before on Alex Symon, tried ANEFS - initially they said they could help, then they couldn't. Currently leaning towards DNA testing after doing a free online Genealogical course with furturelearn, admittedly that is more to solve the mystery of my Grandfather's father, but might stretch back to Alex Symon...
