The Joys of Wearing a Kilt in the Regimental Way

 Having gotten to that point in my life when wearing my kilt in a
 'regimental manner' is an alright thing, I thought that I might share
 some of the good/bad points:

 Good Points:
 1. It's really comfortable
 2. It's really comfortable

 Bad Points:
 1. Sitting down in a car on a winter's day
 2. Sitting down in a car on a summer's day
 3. Sitting down
 4. Windy days
 5. Questions about what you might presently be wearing under the kilt
 (lottsa answers for that one).
 6. Breaking into an impromptu reel
 7. Bending waaaay over to pick up something on the ground.
 8. Dogs coming up to say 'Hello' seem to like it.... too much.
 9. The inquisitive child.

 Seems that the BAD Points far outweigh the GOOD reasons for going
did I mention that it's comfortable?

Dear David,

We have briefly talked sometime ago. I am almost finishing the book I am writing, and have run into a dead end. I will expose my problem.

I am researching a Ronald Duffus Sutherland born in Blue Earth City, Minnesota around 1876. I need to know the name of his father and mother. His father, we believe was a captain of the Royal Navy, a Henry Sutherland, we lost track of him in Ceylon. He should have been alive arounf that time.

It is extremely important for my research to find the name of the father of Ronald Duffus Sutherland born in Blue Earth City Minnesota in 1876. We know this as his son John Elliot Sutherland was born in North Dakota in 1910 and the age of his father was stated as 34, and born in Blue Earth City, Minnesota.

Could you kindly advise me how I can go about this? I have a reputable genealogical firm in Canterbury working on this, but they called out for help...

I hope you can be of help.

Aye yours,
William Sutherland
