I'm located In Scotland. Although born in Glasgow I now live in Aberdeen. Divorced and semi-retired. I like geneology (been hooked for the last year,) reading (all kinds of fiction and factual) and writing poetry (not very good at it, but I find it fun). The names I have been searching for are Shirra, Henney and Allison. Managed to trace the Shirra name back to 1815 in London, but none of the previous Shirras to that date I've found so far have been born on the right dates. Hope someone can help me.
