Laings in Dundee, Scotland (Margaret, James, Ada)
Posted by: Robert Lane (ID *****8226) Date: September 18, 2007 at 14:25:06
  of 686

My great-grandmother (Ada Laing) was born in 1884 in Dundee, Scotland. I have her parents as James Laing and Robina. Recently I came across an Ellis Island entry for when a then married Ada Lane (nee Laing) came into the U.S. with her two eldest sons. This was August 1913 and Ada lists her closest relative in the country she departed as an Aunt Meg Laing on 10 Barrack Street, Dundee.

I assume Meg is short for Margaret and it could be either her married or maiden name.

Any help would be most appreciated, thank you!
