Hi Cliff

Good to hear from you.

I've got some broader family snippets that I put together for William Roulston at the UHF, also found wills to Dr Andrew Baird and his brother Archibald at the PRO in England.

One of the family may have been Sarah Baird married to James Mitchell (one of my kin) who moved from Londonderry to Markham, Ontario in the early 1840s.

Can't help wondering if it wasn't the Baird family connection that encouraged the itchy feet!

Please drop me a line to and I can send you a link or annexures.
