Hi Frances,

Could you give people an idea of what country/county that your Colburns lived in as it would help others to help you in finding answers.

Many thanks

Billy

After more research I believe my family came from the Highlands in Scotland with the name Cockburn but now reside in the US and under Coburn. I wish I knew more but I was not raise with that side of the family, and my mother and grandmother have passed so I cannot gather any information from them. I know Elmo Coburn was my grandfather and last I heard he was in North Carolina and had other children. He fathered 2 with my grandmother Mary Frances Leslie, Norma Jean and Newman L.

Thank you for any information or direction in advance. I would like to pass this down to my sons.
Hi Frances,

If you want to research your Scottish side I would recommend Scotland's People, it's the official site for Scottish records. The URL is http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

If you need any help with the site, feel free to contact me.

All the best

Billy
Thank you, I will check out that site. I know more of my Irish side rather than my Scottish side so hopefully this helps.
