The Lang, Stirling, Kennedy, Young Chart, showing the ancestors of Helena Mary Lang

chart explanation                   Recent Generations >

The following chart starts (from the right column working left) with the parents of Helena Mary Lang (John Lang and Janet Stuart Kennedy).

Some appear with numerous variants. These are shown on the chart where the variants appear in the records for an individual. Often the name will be spelt differently on birth and marriage certificates, and on the certificates for the individual's children. Standardisation of surname spelling is relatively recent.


N.B. The following list is of my ancestral surnames in this chart. There are many other surnames on this chart, but this index covers only those who are direct ancestors of mine. You can also use the Search facility in order to find other names. Please bear in mind the many possible spellings of any given name.

Hamilton, Kennedy, Lang, Menzies, Robertson, Stirling, StuartThomson, Young

The following direct ancestral surnames only appear on the "further back" charts:

McAuslane, McCorkle, McLelland, Munro or Mown (?),

Those shown in small italicised font are possible matches, based often on IGI / LDS records. Much of the original data came from a cousin, Thomas Kennedy of Auldgirth, Dumfriesshire, and some from my great aunt Mrs Walker and a cousin, Jean Facey. I also searched the Scottish Registers in the late 1970's, though not of course via the internet then! I have used this data and subsequently tried to fill in the gaps via IGI / LDS records plus extra information provided by other contributors.

I discovered that I originally had the wrong Janet Stirling - there was another Janet Stirling born around the same time, daughter of William Stirling and Jean Bankeir. Census records show clearly that this was not the Janet Stirling who was the mother of John Lang.

Printing: The pages on this site are designed to print without menus, etc, so that you only get the main page content. It is best to choose landscape format for this page because of the chart. Also I recommend that you reduce the top and bottom margins to zero and remove all headers and footers. This will allow the printed sheets to be joined together. It is also a good idea to minimise left and right margins. For the simplest printing you can use the pdf version and also choose landscape format - many of the other settings are taken care of. Please note, however, that the pdf version does not get updated as often.
