  1. Donald Stuart Ferguson

    Hi, my name is Donald Stuart Ferguson. I live in th Uk. I’m trying to trace family members related to my Dad, Donald Ferguson of Workington, Cumbria. His father was John Ferguson and his mum Frances. Frances was formerly Collins and I believe we are related to Palmers and Tilletsobs. We have a link to Three Rivers somewhere in our past.
    I am writing a paper on our family. Any help would be appreciated.
    Best regards
