Hi Steve
Thanks for responding to my posting. No, my Joan INKSTER was born in 1868. But however, my INKSTERs did come from Burra. Interesting though, I have LEASK cousins who are somehow related to my INKSTER side. I will investigate this further.

Hi Dawn,
I've been working on the INKSTER line. Inkster is a very common name in the Shetland Islands. My Inksters specifically came from West Burra Island but their records are in Bressay. I have a Joan Inkster in my data base as follows:
Joan Inkster was the daughter of Robert and Agnes Inkster. born 13 Dec. 1837.
If this isn't the Joan you're looking for there may be some other connection since Jameison is also a name in my family tree.
Robert and Agnes had 5 children one of which is my anscestor , George. George also had 7 children of whom I have not yet found all their decendants.
I found these records at the LDS IGI file batch # 110014 series #1431.
I hope this helps

Dear Dawn:

I would be interested in learning more about your Leask cousins. I have been working on my husband's family for a while now and have compiled quite a list. However, I have not encountered any Inksters yet. Maybe there is a connection that isn't part of our direct line?

Dawn or Steve,
Do you have a Thomas Jamieson, who married Anne Leask on December 10th 1829 in Dunrossnes, Burra or Bressay. They had only one child, William Jamieson christened 1831. Any relation?

Dear Dawn:

Thanks for contacting me. I would need more information to be sure of anything, but from what I have, I doesn't look like there is a connection. I could be wrong, though. However, I do have a John Inkster (1859-1928) marrying Catherine Jeromson (1862-1896) in 1885. All dates are in Shetland. Does this ring any bells for you? I'd really be happy to hear from you.

Dear Leighsa
My Leask cousins now live in Bayfield, Wisconsin. My information on this is quite dodgy and I will have to get in touch with them to find out more detailed information. Basically this is what I have gathered. Their mother Ruby was an Inkster and she married an Adam Leask. My two cousins John and Hank are their sons. I know Hank and his wife were in Shetland a few years back and would probably be more into the Leask family history end of things. If you like I will dig up his snail mail address.
