Barb, what a fascinating family history. It’s so interesting to me how porous borders and immigration rules used to be. Of course, war disrupts all kinds of things, but I just can’t see anyone these days winding up in a totally new country by serendipity — and then left to go!

Plus, the fact that his birth was only recorded in his parish birth register is so reminiscent of the historical sleuthing that Roger does at the beginning of DiA. I truly hope you go dig in those Scottish archives one day — and let us know what you find!
