Hi Steve & James

I am also related to the DEAS family of South Africa. The youngest daughter of that family, who came out in 1852, was Helen, my great grandmother. I have some detils of the family. The original William Deas came from Forfar in Fife. I also new about the legend that his wife, Isabella BURNS was related to the great poet Robbie BURNS od Scotland. It would be interesting to follow that up. Is the poet's family tree available online?
