1859-09-03THE Queen and the L,T.NT. day lately, when her Majesty was at Aldershott inspecting the camp, she became fatigued, and expressed a wish for a cup of tea. She accordingly, and without any ceremony, entered the nearest officer's tent, which chanced to be that of Lieutenant Drysdale, son of our respected town- clerk, Mr. Drysdale of Kilrie, and to him the desire of his Queen was made known. As was to be expected, the lieutenant found himself at first a little awkward suited for the reception of so distinguished a visitor, but the ease and homeliness, so to speak, of her Majesty quickly put all feeling of that kind to flight, and he proceeded to cover his humble table with the best cloth he had; and having handed out a soldier's I I tea things," he retired, leaving the august lady with her attendants to enjoy her cup.-Fifeshire Advertiser,

Martha , I don't have the subscription to access the fullness of the  information or possibly lack there of . 

 
 
 

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
