Hello Ray, No, not expecting any more, I realised a long time ago, as I said earlier that I was probably beaten. This is why I thought I had better qualify what I had said earlier, for fear of being branded negative by those who still need to use Scotlandspeople. I've heard from people who say they have taken their lines back much earlier to the 1500s. I tend to think that is their luck and its not the same for all of us. Thing is, people still say there is a lot of information I can get and I shouldnt give up searching.
