I can find no record of Blair, Kincardineshire.

I find:

Blair Parish Church
Diocese of Dunkeld
Deanery of Athole and Drumalbane
County of Perthshire


Blairgowrie / Blair(?) Parish Church
Diocese of St Andrews
Deanery of Gowrie

From the evidence, right now I do not see how you make the link between William Arthur (alias Donald), son of William Donald and the Tilquhillies.


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?
