Laing family of West Wemyss
Posted by: Raymond Laing (ID *****1703) Date: October 20, 2004 at 07:04:06
  of 686

My father, John Murray Laing, originated from West Wemyss, Fife and moved to South Africa in his late teens - around 1912 (not sure of exact year). Unfortunately, he died when I was still quite young and before I started taking an interest in my ancestry.
I have now returned to the UK and managed to pay a 'flying' visit to the town, spending some time in the Parish cemetery where I saw quite a few Laing graves. Unfortunately, there was no one around on the day to speak to.
I would really be interested to hear from anyone who may be descended from the same branch of the family or from anyone who knows something about the family line.
