From: 30th June 2009

We’re over the moon to be able to annouce the arrival of Master Jamison Goodwin, on Tuesday 23rd June 2009 in London, to Denise and James.

Mum and baby doing very well, and our congratulations to the whole family – the latest sixth generation Jamison descendant of William Jamison has now been added to the descendant list!

If you know of any Jamison descended baby we’ve missed out, please get in touch; we’d love to hear about them!



Wonderful Purcell Pictures and Updates!

From: 22nd September 2009

The home and gallery pages have been updated with a beautiful picture of my paternal gradmother, Eliza McCurdy Purcell – we had no pictures of our grandmother at all, so this is a wonderful addition.

Many thanks to Colin and Irene for providing a copy, and lots of fantastic and new family history, including a wonderful picture of my great grandmother, Jane Purcell. Thank you so much for introducing us to newly discovered relatives.


Family Reunion Trip to Scotland!

From: 10th December 2009

I’ve just returned from a wonderful six day visit to the highlands, taking in Inverness, the village of Tomatin, and Kintail near the Isle of Skye in Rosshire, to visit my cousins Barbara and Freddy and their mother, my aunt Ara and my cousins Liza and Rusty who are my aunt Winnie’s daughters.

I also met my uncle Donald and many of the younger generation of Jamison-MacAskills. Thank you to everyone who took the time to talk to me and show me aound, it was wonderful to reconnect with so much family in one whirlwind trip, and thank you for your grand hospitality! I have a much better understanding of our family history since Fred and Eliza’s time, which Uncle Donald was especially helpful with. I was invited to my second cousin’s wedding,and a good time was had by all!

I will be creating a separate page with pictures from this trip, which I hope to repeat soon in the spring of 2010, once the snows have cleared!
