Re: More Ayrshire Galts

Good evening Darren,
I don't have any proof about most of these bits of Tree I'm afraid,
I have seen the OPRs at various Family History Centres but am not 100% sure about tieing them into my Tree.Agnes Galt and Duncan McCallum were my GGG grandparents - beyond that it is conjectural!! Some Galts came from Coleraine in Northern Ireland.
As to the Galts in Europe, or Scotland, it's funny the way they either migrated or died out - they might still be in Ayrshire but I don't know -
Agnes Galt's brother John is yours - and went to the US
Janet her sister might have married David Murray though I am not sure
James Galt I can't trace
Robert died in infancy
If we go back to the previous generation, there are more children = BUT It's so far back that I haven't found any reliable records...
Hugh I think married Agnes Smith -
James is ours
William may have married but there are a couple of possibilities
Jean - possible marriages
E;lizabeth - ditto
David married Ann Currie and had daughter Jean in Kilmarnock
Mary married William Brown
John unsure
Adam married Mary McAuley
Sorry I'm not able to help!
Your best bet might be to spemd a few days at the Record Office in Edinburgh. You can now access a lot of them in Glasgow, I believe.
Best wishes

> Thank you for the information Catherine. I have John Galt and Elizabeth Wright on my "maybe" list but I am not ready to confirm it. Do you have access to this information that can help me add them in?
> Also, I have the opportunity to travel to Europe on occasion and I was wondering if any of our family still resides there? If so, is their a concentration center where the Galt's reside? Any information would be helpful.
> Thanks again,
> Darren
