It is very nice of you to post information to help others. My father was from Banff Scotland, immigrated to the USA in 1923, I was born in New YOrk State, and now live in California. All fo my research has been on line and in the Family History library at the local Church. I have found some newspaper references and have obtained some death notices from the local papers there. I have not heard of the Buchan Observer, is it from Huntly? I envision you sitting in a dusty dark basement reading 150 year old newspapers... How do you have access to the arcives?? Is it online?? Thank you for sharing this information.
