A history of the family of Edward Allan Thomson and Jane Shaw Blaikley

Edward Allan Thomson was very keen to encourage his family to leave records for their decendents and wrote several memoirs for his grandchildren. In 1963, to mark his golden wedding anniversary, he also employed a genealogist to investigate and draw the family tree. Inspired by Edward's example, his family have continued to develop the archive he began, one of the results being this website.
