Thanks for answering wo quickly. I would very much like his email address. Most of my family is from Scotland in and around Dunblane, Edinbirough, Glascow and Fife, and who knows where else? I love working on my geneology since I'm retired from nursing it keeps me busy. What part of the country do you live in? As I think I mentioned I live in Prineville,Or. a small mill town in the center of Oregon. I live with my parents in a home we bought together, because I have never been married and I also have lupus, so we take care of each other. I have always gotten along with my parents very well.I have lots of info on other relatives such as Kenneth who was born in 1912 and died in 1999 in Fruitland, Id. There are a lot of us in Idaho (I was born in Weiser and so was my sister and brother.)There was a John Syme born in 1681-1710 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and he married a Sara Winston. He died abt1730.Sara's parents were John Syme and Sarah Hoopsand her daughter's name was Anne marie Syme.My dad's uncle was George Banks Syme who was born in 1884 and died in 1978 in Payette,Id. Wll I guess I better quit for know, as you know there are so many of us it's almost impossible to try and keep it straight, but I'm trying.
