Have a wonderful day!
I have traced Meickle back to 1500's through ancestry.com and geneology.com they are from the Lanarkshire area of Scottland. The name Meickle in our early family was a surname, then when my grandma was born it became a middle name and I am the first in our family to have it as a first name.

Rae is the maden name of my grandmother they were also from the Lanarkshire area of Scotland.

The Russells are also from Scottland and have been traced back into the early 1600's

The Ohlmanns and Paulsens are both from Denmark and have been traced back, I am not sure how far, I would have to look at my Ohlmann book to find out.

The photo is of my grandmother on her graduation from high school at age 15.

Hi Meickle,

I hope you don't mind me mentioning it but if you are delving further the current Scottish County Name is Lanarkshire, not Lankenshire.

I've seen this corruption before for Lancashire in England too and people do muddle the two up if they are not familiar with UK geography. I'm a UK resident so I'm sure of the names. but it is very easy to misread something if you don't know what it should say, and having it right does help searching.

Carol you are absolutely right, I was looking at my old records and made the error. I edited my post to be correct, thank you for your input.
