Johnston Family Files

A study of the descendants and other relations of Samuel JOHNSTON and his wife Isabella BURNS. Samuel and Isabella were married in Belfast, Ireland, in 1837.

The photographs in the collections presented below pertain (for the most part) to John & Elizabeth [nee Orr] Johnston and their large family of descendants. A few images in one collection or the other as received pertain to some of Elizabeth [nee Orr] Johnston's siblings and their families.

Images within this collection have been provided by Amanda [nee Orr] Heather; Paul Johnston; and Alan Nelson. I extend my sincere thanks to them for doing so! In some cases, I've also found pertinent photos as part of a personal family tree on <www.ancestry.com>. I've downloaded them, and renamed them as I thought appropriate. See the key to who provided what below under all of the image galleries.

When possible, as time progresses, we've been able to identify more of the people in one photo or another. In the 'identified and annotated' gallery above, each image has been given a unique file name, with the person's name and some pertinent date information. The last strings in the identified and annotated file name show the source of the image, and the original 'as received' file name. For example, a 'bm' indicates that this was an image scanned from my own photo collection; 'pj' indicates that Paul Johnston sent a bare image file to me; and something like 'ao_img059' indicates that Amanda [nee Orr] Heather sent an image to me that was named <img059>. Files annotated with 'atgn' were provided by Alan Nelson.

Those files which have 'ancestry' in the name also shows the 2 or 3 letter initials of the person who created the tree, and their image file name. 'jef' refers to a 'personal family tree' posted by Joanne Edna Falconer - the 'Mills/Falconer Family Tree'.
