I'm James and I have been researching my family history for over 15 years, it started out as a small school project and has developed well.

I have recorded over 550 individuals and if my research is correct managed to record as far back as 1540s whist is my 12th great grand parents.

I have one brick wall that is bugging me though and involves my maternal grandfather I can't research his line due to being unsure on names. What I know is he was brought up by his grandmother but unsure which grandmother.

My gran is reluctant to talk about it as even now think it's a sensitive subject, my mum knows fragmented bits but it's not accurate.

Other issue is it's Scotland
