Board Name: Scotland
Bill Kinnes USA Jan 27, 2003
I am trying to find out about my family (Kinnes) and any relatives that I might have.

The only information that I am sure about is the my Grandfather, William Kinnes was born in Dundee, November 19, 1872. His Father's name was John Kinnes, his mother was Josephine Bell. The GROS record indicates they were married in 1872, but the LDS records cite Dec 29, 1871 as their date of marrige.

My grandfather apparently was quite a character. He was married in Scotland, had children, and then went to the USA.

He had four children with my grandmother before they finally married in 1916,and then divorced in 1924.

My grandmother was also born in Dundee, on Sept 4, 1879. Her name was Ann Carless. Her parents names were, Patrick Carless & Catherine McCarrie (married 26 June, 1863)

The only marriage record I could find that might be my grandfather is a 1895 marriage of William Kinnes & Jessie Kerr Frazer in Dundee.

I am assuming that I probably have some cousin's in Scotland. Not too likely that any Uncle's or Aunt's are still living.

Would appreciate any help or information that someone might have.
