I am researching my ancestors from the Isle of Unst,Shetland.My 3rd great grandmother was Margaret Janet Thomson who was b. Unst 3 August 1813. Her father was James Thomson mother name unknown. Margaret married John Sutherland on Unst in 1834 although it is speculation as to whether he was from Unst or not. I would be ,most interested to hear from anybody with any information on the Thomson surname which was quite popular on the Isle of Unst and I am sure that someone can put me right on the origins of the name, whether they are from Norway or Denmark. Two countries that I know in history had claimed a stake in the Shetlands.

James Murray Moose Jaw, SK Canada Jan 20, 2001
Greetings from the Canadian Prairies! Am looking for info on James (born January 1878) and Agnes (nee Scott) Murray, who left Scotland in 1910; and eventually made it to Vancouver, BC. Anyone in Lockerbie or Lochmaben with info please e-mail me. Was wondering about family in Scotland and siblings to Jim and Agnes. If it helps, Jim served with the RH & RA from 1900 to 1907. Jim and Agnes had 3 girls (all of whom died in Scotland) and 4 boys: James, George, John and Joseph. Would like to trace the family history back as far as possible and any help would be appreciated.
