I would request that you might put me in touch with any local amateur historian who may have some knowledge or contact of the Donaldson clan in and around Stonehaven.
On our mother´s side we are Donaldsons, with many generations originating from Kincardineshire, more notably Stonehaven, and with at least maybe six consecutive generations buried in the grounds of Dunnottar Church.
Currently we trace our direct line of descent from the long late George Donaldson who was born on 13 November, 1709 in Dunnottar, Kincardineshire, Scotland.
According to our family records he died on 18 October, 1794, and was buried in Dunnottar Churchyard, Kincardineshire, Scotland.
Our particular Donaldson family is now spread right across the world with immediate relatives in Tasmania, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, South Africa, Kenya, South Sudan, Italy, Spain and, even, England!
If you so wish I can forward a short PDF file with the family tree of this particular Donaldson clan.
Thanking you in advance for your courtesy, attention and any assistance in the pursuit of all things Donaldson.
Warmest regards from Spain
Adrian Grimwood (half DONALDSON).
