Welcome

My name is Joan Hempel and I started this site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 11754 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of John STRUTHERS I (1670). The most recent event is the birth of <Private> Victor (June 24 2014).
The site was last updated on Oct 23 2014, and it currently has 827 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here.   Enjoy!

My family history is fascinating for the fact that my Scottish family lived, worked and prospered not through luck, but through toil, hard work and tenacity.   Part of my family's blood belongs to the South-West of Scotland - Robert the Bruce is said to hail from Ayrshire where some of our ancestors have been traced to!   When you examine the history of the places where my ancestors came from and you consider their role in many landmark events in Scotland, and indeed in Britain's history, we would discover that we probably have a lot to be proud of!

It was also discovered by chance, by Robert Edwards, University of Edinburgh, who researched the family for me, that one or two of the houses/homes referred to in his report, where my ancestors lived over 200 years ago, are still standing today - such as "Greenockdyke" farm.   This offers a real connection between me and my past.
