Hello Hello
well Im here looking for connections , possibly

we are living in Scotland and just seeking some family information about folks who may have gone oversees

our family names are Lang/Blackley (fathers side) . I followed some threads on both but I wasnt sure who was looking for who, so thought Id put my own post out
My father was John MacLean Lang (Elderslie) and my grandaprents and great granparents were wine merchants in Paisly/Johnstone

thanks

Hello thankyou for your message

perhaps I am looking at the wrong John M Lang, my father and grandfather are both JM Lang, and wine merchants. And I was brought up in Catherine Blacklocks house in Elderslie . My father used to talk about great aunt Kate, guess this must be her

I had been trying to find where the Blacklock side of the family joined with Langs

thanks
