    I hope this is the correct place to ask:

    I am researching my husband’s ancestry, the last name WOODBURN.

    I have come to a bit of a roadblock. We live in New York, and we know his family came through New York harbor at Ellis Island but cannot find record of exactly where they came FROM. I believe it would have been the Kilmarnock area, but I’m unsure of how to find the records and make the connections! Can anyone direct me to the correct sources?

    Please and thank you in advance!

    Hi Bethany

    If you have dates and some names, then the best place to start researching your husband’s ancestors is on the Scotlandspeople ( website. It holds Scotland’s birth, marriage, death and census records and more. Woodburn is a name I have definitely seen in East Ayrshire records, so you are on the right track.

    I have some information on a Woodburn family of Newmilns, two brothers who emigrated first to northern Vermont, USA, in period 1825=1830. Hugh Woodburn lived in Troy, NY, until about 1840 he moved to Southfield, Michigan. His brother William moved to Lapeer, Michigan. Their father was also Hugh, born ~1770 at Fenwick. He married Janet Shields, my gggrandfather’s sister about 1800. There were 9 children, I believe. The oldest sister, Jean, married my gg grandmother’s brother Francis Young and lived at the Young family home, Leeloan. Francis died 1846 leaving a whole parcel of children: Jean moved all but two with her to be with Hugh in Southfield. They may be too early for your research.
