RE: Cathy Slivka's photos
Hi again, from 'the old country',

I dropped Cathy a brief message on facebook, but I haven't heard back from her either (although she is active on facebook most days).

I am descended from your Barbara Laird's aunt Barbara, Edward's sister, who married James Andrew. Tracing back from Barbara Sr./Edward is tricky, although every cousin I've encountered has Isabella Towers/Toures and Alexander Laird.

I have a death cert. for my Barbara Laird (1796-1874), informant was her son George, and he said Barbara's father was Robert Laird, a colliery workman, but I have found no trace of him, and the mother field was blank, so he didn't seem to be too knowledgeable about his forebears! How unusual, for the time, but being the youngest child he possibly never knew his grandparents. I also note that the name Robert did not seem to be a popular one to pass down.

However, Henry Wilson Laird, who married Elizabeth Rae, has a death cert. with parents Alexander Laird and Isabella Towar (informant= son Edward).

Are you on Ancestry? Most of my research is up there, including documents, and I can send you a tree invite if you'd like.

Take care,

Hi Bill,
I'm a cousin of Cathy's, from the UK, and noticed your message. I'll let her know that you've left a message for her on here, in case she hasn't responded.
Are you related through the Laird/Robertson lines?
