Trying to ascertain if I have any relatives in and about my dad's (George Watson Lees) birthplace and my grandparents (Mary Lees (nee Jack) and William Lees both buried in Arbroath cementry. I am currently living in Tasmania, Australia.
My email address is: rodlees@live.com.au.

Hi Rod

Have you tried putting an article in the Arbroath Herald?

I had some success from that being contacted by my father's first cousin in Canada, his second cousin living in England and his old schoolmate living in Spain.

Hi Rod
Maybe out of the blue here. The William lees who I believe is your grandfather happens to be my great grandfather through his first marriage to Margaret burns. If I'm right they had four children John, Janet, Robert and Mary. Mary was my grandmother though by the time I was born she had died 3-4 years previously. She and Janet moved here to New Zealand in which Mary married my grandfather Henry (Harry) divers. I have been tracing my family lines further back and have also tried tracing William sons lines to the present through his first marriage. Maybe a connection??
