My Wifes Family Tree.


My wife's father has the surname :- Slack and my wife's mother has the maiden surname :- Mc Burnie .

I have traced the Slack family history and ancestors back to Westmorland (now Cumbria) and Joseph Slack born in 1705 and married to Frances Jackson .

I have traced the Mc Burnie family history and ancestors back to Ireland and James McLoughlin born 1801 in Antrim, Ireland and married Elizabeth ( Betty ).

On starting my wife's family tree - I was presented with a folder containing, hand written and typed notes, written by Grace Slack in 1981.
