I recently got interested discovering my ancestry.
I'm sorry I can't help you. All I know is that we're distantly related. I only have information traced back to July 22, 1823 in Kilmarnock, Scotland, UK (about 25 miles southwest of Glasgow) when William SHedden and Elizabeth Simpson got married. I got my information from http://www.mcskimming.org.uk/dsilva/report/fam61.html
My Great-Great-Great Grandparents on my mother's side were William Shedden and Elizabeth Simpson. Their first child, Alexander Hall Shedden (c. 1823-1878), and Margret Graham (1828-1878) were my Great-Great Grandparents. Their sixth child, Charles Edward Shedden (1857-1931) and Rachel Wijenayeke (1867-1931) are my Great Grandparents. Thier second child, James Robertson Shedden (1887-1963) and Mabel Alice Goonewarndena (1895-1973) were my Grandparents. Their eigth child, Joyce Ethel Shedden (1927-2006) and Susanta Heendeniya (1927- ) are my parents.
I'm also intersted if there is any more information going back further. If anyone can find any infomation, I'd greatly appreciate it.
