WILL family

Old  Deer: A local scene

I'm researching my WILL family history. From census records and his death record, my gt gt grandfather James WILL seems to have been born in Old Deer around 1829 to a crofter called James WILL and Mary ??BALGARNIE?? (really hard to read the handwriting).

However, I've been unable to find any record of his birth or any likely parents through 1841 census, IGI records and gravestone searches. By 1851 James WILL (my gt gt grandfather) was living at Seacliff in East Lothian and he died in Edinburgh in 1901.

I'd be interested in making contact with anyone else researching the WILL family in Old Deer to swap information.

I'm also staying in Old Deer (at the Old Bank House) from 5-7 Sep 2010 to wander around the area and get a feel for the place, and would be interested in talking to anyone there who is interested in the WILL family.
