Welcome to The Guthrie Forest...... It started out as a little old tree and soon became a bush, and is fast becoming a forest as I get the time to input names and families' information. Of course it is taking some real detective work to put all the roots of trees together and to sort out which part of the forest they are from, but it is a very rewarding pastime and a real learning of history experience. Enjoy your "walk in the woods" and hopefully find a path with your name on it and those of others you may know. Also, if you have anybody to add, leave details in the guestbook and I will enter them for all to see. It is with sincere appreciation that I would like to thank the many people at "Scotlands Family Tree" for their time and persistance in searching through all kinds of information to come up with names and dates and places of many of my long lost relatives. Also to many new found and reunited cousins who have shared their research with me and made it easier to grow the forest to it's current size. A big thank-you to Sandy Pittendreigh for his help in the Freeman/McBay line that goes back forever. And especially to Joanne P. Beattie from Johnshaven, Scotland, a published author on many genealogy articles of people present and past from in and around the Johnshaven area. Her knowledge of the Blease family line gave me several generations back in my direct lineage and to people and countries that I had no knowledge of as being in the family. And to a new found relative, Martyn Philip Howes on my paternal grt-grt- grandmother's side who has opened up a whole new branch of the Bazeley and beyond tree which I was having a great deal of difficulty tracing back. A distant cousin, Hugh Forster, from Australia has allowed me just about every Officer in the tree and an extensive library of a family that seems to go on for ever. My sincere appreciation to both him and his sister for the great work they have shared with me. My wife would like to thank a fellow by the name of Chris Gordon who has given us seven generations back on her maternal side. A tree that was totally unknown past her Grt Grandmother, and which now goes on into its own forest with branches all over North America and back to Europe. Thanks for Visiting!
