Hi,

I am writing a biography of Sir Alexander Burnes, who was a famous explorer and diplomat. He had no children but his many brothers and sisters had children and descendants.

I am most keen to contact desendants of the Montrose family; obviously, any family stories or papers would be wonderful (Alexanbder's journals were recorded as with his family in the late 19th century and were quoted by historians then but have vanished). But contact from any descendants of Alex's father James Burnes of Montrose would be most welcome.
