This is O/H family tree. he always wondered where his name originated so i thought i will see where his family came from. this started me on a quest, to see how far back i could get. 1stly online at Scotlands National Archive, then visiting the Archive in Edinburgh, we searched through parish records in microfilm. eventually we were able to get back to 1678. this is where it stopped in a graveyard in Dunbar on Lothian coast. it would seem my husbands family had a long tradition as fishermen. this family tree bussiness is sooo addictive. the more you find the more you become intrigued and the more you want to find.
