Author: germic90 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.syme/78.1.1.1.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hello: I have looked at all the Syme names in your data base on Rootsweb, but was not able to identify any of the Symes as related to Robert McMillan Syme that married our Janet Ann Baird Dempster. If I have missed something, please let me know, I found it difficult to finally get to the listing of Symes. Robert's parents were James Syme and Elizabeth (Betsy) McMillan. The William Kemp listed, unfortunately, does bit fit in my tree at this time. I do keep note of all the names that I come across and if any do fit after more research, I would advise.
