Journal by judymart

Seeking out descendants of my great grandparents. I live in Australia. My father and I both only children. My grandmother, Margaret Wilson Kerr married Alfred Arthur Richard Beard in Sydney in 1922. I only know of my grandmother's brothers and sisters - their names, Janet (Jess), Alexander, Hugh, David, Thomas, Joseph, Robert, Eliza and Mary.

Thomas was a coach / cab driver and lived at 24 Caledonian Road, Edinburgh. My Aunt Jess was a spinster and a nurse, as was my Aunt Eliza. Mary married and her surname was Ruickbie.
