Lyn & Peter Huk’s Ancestral Tour

Lyn & Peter Huk from Australia are on a week long ancestral tour to Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders. Their tour was planned as Lyn wished to learn more about her Scottish ancestors along with the people, places and traditions connected with them. In advance of their visit, Ian had already researched Lyn’s Anderson, Geddes, Scott and Tweedie ancestry.

As well as learning more about Lyn’s ancestry, her and Peter were interested in visiting local visitor attractions and leaning more about the history and culture of the South of Scotland.
