I've been trying to do some research on my family for the past year and I seem to have hit a dead end. When it comes to the Heddles I'm stuck at my great-great grandfather John Reid(or Reed) Heddle. All I have been able to find out it that he was from Kirkwall, born about 1870, married a Janet Sinclair and immigrated to Canada in the early 1900's. If anyone has any information they think may be relevant please share :) I know there's a ton of Heddles in Orkney, I'd just like to maybe find some connections.
Edit July 19 2014: So I stumbled on some very old family photos recently and have discovered my great-great-great-grandfather Robert John Heddle (John Reid's father). Again, if anyone has any information of this branch of the Heddles please share any information :)
