Re: Descendant of George & Helen SHEARER (nee MILLER)

Hullo all,

I started doing some Stronsay based research barely a month or so ago. This is for a friend living in Shetland. I know little of the "Family History" and am starting with a poor quality and incomplete scan from a handwritten 'Tree Chart'.

This chart begins with George MILLER (fisherman) m Helen MILLER, then their son Peter MILLER m Elizabeth FLETT and in turn, their children of which I have an incomplete record.

I have:-
Elizabeth MILLER m Robert MILLER (farmer of Gowshouse) and they appear to have had 7 children, names of some are virtually illegible. One that does stand out is Robert MILLER m to Rebecca FOTHERINGHAM of Hescom. They may have had 8 children but I'm not sure about names.

There's evidence of much more that's 'off the page' and I would be most appreciative of a chance to learn more. I've looked at all the postings in this thread and am convinced I've got the right connections.

To simplify the gathering of information on these names and other connecting ones, I've set up an online forum:-

Any contact with other researchers will be grand.
