Hi, I am attempting to create a family tree as well as to find out what clan Sangster was part of. I am from Aberdeen and would welcome any information or helpful hints to creating my family tree.

Thank you.

I also have Sangster in me: my mother was born Edith Sangster in Aberdeen to George Byres Sangster and Edith Grey in the 1930s. My grandfather was born (I think) on 12 January 1912 (deceased 1974). He and Edith had several male children, all of whom dies at birth or shortly thereafter. Edith Grey died in the 1940s and George then married Violet Kemp. They had one daughter: Christine Margaret born in 1952. Christine married in 1977 Iain Duncan, a fellow student at St Andrews; they have three boys and now live in Illinois. Violet died also and George married for a third time one Ethel Murray (I am unsure of her original name - she was a widow) who already had one son, Scott married to the now late Dorothy and with one son (Keith) and one daughter. All of the above are Aberdeen.
George had an engineering works (Bon Accord Tools) until he retired. His parents lived on Queens Road.
George had a brother Charlie and a sister Mabel. Mabel died as a young women and never married. George married a lady called Min and they had two girls, Pamela and June.
I will try to get some more info for you if you think there may be a link somewhere.

From readings I have done the Sangsters do not appear to belong to any specific clan. My branch of the Sangsters originated in the Aberdeen area of Scotland and a Joseph Sangster moved to Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, Canada(around 1785) and settled in a community known as New Harbour. There are many Sangsters who still live there.

I have information which traces my Sangster line from Northern Virginia to Aberdeeen Scotland. Thomas Sangster of Aberdeen came to Virginia in 1737. Married to (in Scotland) Mary Tillett. Thomas Sanster's son, James Sangster married Pricilla Ford. Their son, Edward Sanster Married Mary Kendal Lee (from the Lee family as in Robert E. Lee family group but not directly related to Robert E. Lee of the CSA). Edward and Mary had a son, James Sangster, Judge James Sangster of Northern Virginia....circuit judge for the area. Son to him is Lee Sangster....my great grandfather.

Dorothy,
Your name is very familiar and we have much of the same information. I believe my husband's brother Raymond has met you. See my post of 6\21\2000. Our daughter visited the Family History Center in Aberdeen a few years ago and we think she found (with their help) Thomas Sangster's birth record. My records are not in good order right now and am expecting family tomorrow, so I'm going from memory, but will return later with additions. His father was James Sangster, a blacksmith and his mother Isabella Simpson in St. Nicholas parish, Aberdeen. Note that we are not yet certain since there were other Thomas that need to be ruled out and a more definite connection to our Thomas needs to be found, but it looks likely.

Dear Colin,
Origins of OUR CLAN, origionated via Aberdeen, in Scotland. I have traced (with help), back to 1790, and feel that further
investignation of Clan should be done. Tell me where does Campbell come in, Regards,Mike.
