View Full Version : Swan/Donaldson

My 3xGt Grandfather Alexander Donaldson married Elizabeth Swan on 2/10/1825 in Cupar, Fife. They had 11 children, the youngest of which was my gt gt grandfather.(John). It seems they travelled around various parishes, Balmerino,Leuchars,Forgan,Kilmany and St Andrews. I have no information on the other children they had. If anyone has any information they are willing to share, i would be glad to hear from you.

Hi Melissa,

Many many thanks for your information and sincere apologies for not acknowledging you sooner, my time has been a bit taken up with other things, and i have rather neglected my research. I am picking up the threads (sorry!) again now, and this will help me fill in the picture.
Thanks again, Lizziebeth(Carol)
