Alan is interested in all his ancestors and the life and social history around them. However you might want to narrow it down to these two-
John Potter, a Hanged Covenanter, captured in Ayrshire and taken to Edinburgh to be hanged
William Runciman of Crail , who drowned at an early age in a fishing tragedy.
There are also 3 other Runciman 'lineages' which thanks to DNA testing are now discovered to be branches of the same lineage with a Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) in the 1600s, most likely in East Lothian or the Scottish Borders.

Crail Fishing Disaster History and Latest News
Alan is a descendant of William of Crail who drowned with 7 others in the 1765 Crail Fishing Disaster. A 250th anniversary commemoration for the drownings was held in Crail on 16 May 2015.
Scotland and Beyond currently a work-in-progress - view the latest draft
In 2004 a history of the William Runciman of Crail line was published. A second edition is being prepared to include all the updates and discoveries. By linking to WikiTree Personal Profiles the information in this 2nd edition is always current and always accessible.
Note: this 2nd edition is in its very early stages so please be prepared to use your vision of how it'll all work when we have the appropriate links showing!! We also seek as many contributions as possible from those on our Crail line. Stories, biographies, anything you think will be of interest to future generations. Please leave something for all the grandchildren!

I haven't done any merging that I am aware of, mostly new profiles and will have to work out how to do the manager/ trusted thingy. But will get onto it. Cheers Diane

Thank you for your kind words. It would be good if we can achieve an excellent resource for generations to come, as those who are not interested at the moment maybe one day. Regards Diane

Thanks for the warm welcome. Looks like I've definitely come to the right place. Lorna Henderson has just linked me with my direct ancestral line so hopefully I'll be able to make some connections. I'm off to visit family this weekend so haven't time to do much but I've downloaded my GEDCOM from Genes Reunited and will upload to Wiki Tree next week. Catch you soon Geoff
