I am trying to find out information about my Donaldson ancestors, and thanks to information received from another member, i know that they lived mainly in Fife. My 3xGtGrandfather was Alexander Donaldson and he married Elizabeth Swan on 2/10/1825 in Cupar,Fife. They had 11 children and seemed to move around the following Parishes:- Balmerino,Leuchars,Forgan,Kilmany and St Andrews. The youngest of the children John Alexander was born on 24/10/1847 and he is my 2xGtGrandfather. He in turn married on 27/5/1871 to Euphemia Cruickshanks in the Parish of Dunino. Euphemias parents were William Cruickshank(shoemaker) and Mary (Pearson). They had at least one child - Robert, who was born in 1873, and he in turn married on 2/6/1893 to Mary Boag(French Polisher) in Old Kilpatrick,Dumbarton.If anyone can help with any further information or details, or indeed shares my ancestry, i would be very pleased to hear from you.
Thank you, Lizziebeth
