Ellis Trautman You looked at my Rothnie tree recently. I discovered today it was an early version & less complete than it is now.A lot of folks from 1800s are now included. Have you a connection? Like you so many viewers thru' I can't remember if it was a go or not before. Cheers.

Rick Benzies Somewhere down the line we both have Duncan's in the tree & I still go in different branches. I believe that we do somewhere in the tree but It can't tell me if we are they tell me that my tree is to big to make connections. thanks Rick

Ellis Trautman Hey Rickety. I've tried to find a connection of the Benzies to the Rothnies but, alas, It beats me.
One can't just go out & pluck a family name off the net & stick it in their tree. My Rothnie Tree is pretty exclusive to the extent that if they didn't carry Rothnie DNA, or give birth to it, then they don't get a gurnsey, if you get my drift.
I've asked you earlier for a proof of connection but no answer.
I agree, your tree is too big & out of control & I don't think you are remotely related, certainly not by DNA.
41+ thousand folks is not a family, it's a population of a city. If you can't verify a Rothnie connection, I'd appreciate removing it from your tree. That would help better management of your tree.
Cheers, Ellis Trautman.

Lorraine MacKenzie Hello Rick
I have had a contact from a Robert Burns - - he is tracing the Otto Schwass/Mabel Helena Schwass (nee Stacey) family. As the family is very distant from mine I wonder if you could contact Robert with any information you may have about this family.
With thanks in anticipation.
Regards Lorraine
