Is it possible to connect Judy Garland's g-grandfather Milne to Christopher Robin Milne?

I find it interesting that the current profile of the week has ancestors that share a last name with the previous profile of the week.  Talk about coincidences!

So Judy Garland's mother's maiden name was Milne, and it traces back to Judy's great grandfather, Charles Milne (~1829-1900) who was born in Arbroath, Scotland.  The previous profile of the week was Christopher Robin Milne, whose ancestry through the Milne family name goes back to Banffshire, Scotland.  

While these are different areas of Scotland, for sure, is it possible to connect the two families with a common Milne ancestor?

I'm across the sea in the USA so I don't really know how (or if) I can find records that go back that far from another country.  Even in my own ancestry, once I reach the point where an ancestor emigrated, I cannot go back any further.

I'd like to see if there's a connection between the two Scottish Milne families though, so does anyone know what I should do to accomplish that?

You could try Scotlandspeople if you want to look at Milne lines. However, be aware that it is a fairly common name. My own Milnes are from Aberdeenshire, so closer to Banff than Arbroath. 

Yes, connecting Milne's in Aberdeen and surrounding areas is a little like connecting Smith's in the U.S.
I am sure I have some research here somewhere about her tree as at onetime I had thought a stepmother of one ancestor was related - pretty sure that was a false tree situation and it was disconnected at some point so I have not looked into it in years but I did work on it at one point, maybe I can find it this weekend

Well I am in wonder how much of a chance I will  Christopher Robin is the son of AA Milne.

Charles Milne born Arbroth, Angus, Scotland born circa 1829 and Died circa 1900.

Yes I believe that Charles Milne is related to Judy Garland and Liza Minelli as there is a Garland and a Minelli in the Descendants of Charles Milne.  I am learning to read the Descendant and ancestry charts.... so look up the link...    good luck ..
