On 9 July

It’s been blisteringly hot here today at 28C (and by Yorkshire standards that is very hot indeed). Quiet on the family tree, although there’s another birthday up in Aberdeen.

9 July 1756
Birth of John Smith (doesn’t every family tree have one?) at New Deer, Aberdeenshire, son of John Smith and Margaret Birnie. His sister Catherine married my gggg grandfather James Logan. Unfortunately, with a name as common as John Smith it’s impossible to figure out which, if any, is the right one in the OPR records for marriages.

9 July 1933
Happy 80th birthday to Gordon in Aberdeenshire, descended from my gg grandfather Alexander Fraser.
