A recent Auld reunion in Kaneohe, Hawaii. Everyone in the picture is a descendant of Andrew Auld from Linlithgow.

Edwin Parker Auld is trying to research his great-great grandfather – Andrew Auld – born in 1799 in Linlithgow. Andrew left Scotland and arrived in Honolulu, in 1818. He married a local and spent the rest of his life there.

Edwin said: “The descendants of Andrew number in the hundreds in Hawaii and the fammily is rather well respected in the islands with street names, etc named after him.”
