>From what I understand my family came over in the early 1900's because dad
was the only child born in the USA in 1914. You would think I would be
able to get a foot on info. in Scotland much easier, but Grandpa Peter
Duncan Goodale didn't like to talk about Scotland as I'm told by my cousin
who grow up in Boston with grandpa around him. My Grandmother was Mary Ann
Chisholm Goodale and Chisholm is such a well know name, you would think I'd
find something easier with that name, no luck. What I did find out from my
mom after the death of my dad Duncan Chishom Goodale is that my great
grandfather was a taylor in Dundee, why she remembered that I don't know
and Grandfather Peter was a steel worker in Boston. I'm also thinking that
Duncan might be my Great Grandmothers maiden name from my grandfathers side
because they seemed to gave the grandmothers maiden name as middle name in
the family. Peter Duncan Chisholm, Duncan Chisholm Goodale etc......
