Looking for Edward Temple

My sister and I are trying to trace our family members who emigrated to America many years ago.

Our father was Edward Temple, and he was born in Scotland. He was eldest of the brothers, we believe. He had several siblings who we know left Scotland for America to start a new life. We also know that his sisters resided in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and that his brother George lived in Santa Barbara with his wife, Betty, and to our knowledge had two children. George Temple did visit us in England after our father died many years ago as did our Aunty “Nellie,” who visited us with, I think, Ellen, before our father died. One of the brothers, Harry, subsequently emigrated to South Africa, and for a few years we and our parents lived over there.

We eventually lost touch with all our family abroad, unfortunately, and as we have been researching our family tree, we thought it would be wonderful if we could trace any members of our extended family. We appreciate that there may now be no family members still living in Santa Barbara, but if there are or there is anyone there who may remember them and are able to give us any information, we would be really grateful if you could email me at the following address —

Thanking you in anticipation.
