My Name ©

Jim McRobert
Edinburgh, Scotland

My name is Jim McRobert a rare name it would seem
I've tried to trace my ancestors but yet to find the cream
My dad came from the Scottish Borders his dad and grandpa too
Near the village of Canonbie, this is my only clue
I've hunted for Certificates to see where they were born
Checked in all the kirkyards through records somewhat foreign
I've searched upon the Internet of soldiers gone to war
Hunted through their registers, caused a real furore
So I'm asking as I write this among all you folk that write
Is there anyone called McRobert who has access to this site?
