In Reply to: Help just starting to look for kinnears by Glynis Thorgeirson [kinnear] of 384

Hi Glynis,
My name is Richardson Dunn Kinnear (Riki) I emigrated to Australia 2 years ago from Edinburgh, Scotland with my wife and children.
My father, my grandfather, my gg grandfather and so on originally came from Fife in Scotland.
Indeed, yself, my brother and three sisters were born in Kirkcaldy, Fife.
Many years ago my dad's brothers, Dick and Jim traced our family lineage.
There is a very strong connection with Ireland and certainly, many Kinnears emigrated to America and Canada.
My dad is buried in a family plot in the gardens of the Mcduff castle at East Wemyss(pronounced 'WEEMS')in Fife.
I was always told that we were descendants of Mcduff, the Earl of Wemyss.

I have copies of the info that my uncles uncovered but in some parts it is very difficult to understand.
I may be able to help you further if you wish to make contact.

Regards, Riki.
