family history
My Wallace Ancestors

This Wallace family tree was compiled almost entirely from the public records available in Edinburgh, where I was able to trace a fairly complete pattern, knowing only my grandfather's age at the date of his death, the address where my father lived in Edinburgh in the 1920s and a few of his recollections of his uncle and cousins. The GRO's computerised indexes allow you to do some fairly speculative searches and to check the results immediately against the microfiches of the original records. Even better than that, this page caught the eye of one of the cousins I had never known - and now we have new family connections!
