message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My name is allso David Phimister and I live in West Yorkshire, England, You say your grandfather was born in Forrest, Scotland, do you mean 'Forres', If so, my family come from the same area, my great grandfather was born in Elgin, Morayshire which is about 10 miles from Forres and before that I believe the family came from Dyke which is only about 3 or 4 miles west of Forres, maybe there's a connection some way back, whichever way, good luck with the research.
