I am trying to get some clarification on ALEXANDER GARDINER (born 30/4/1774 in Port Glasgow, Renfrew). His parents were Alexander Gardiner and Janet McKinlay (no dates). I am looking for a ALEXANDER GARDINER, born around this time, who was an educated man, and was in MOSCOW around 1808. He travelled to St. Petersburg, Prussia, Turkey, amongst other places in this area. He wrote a manuscript called Augustus Gollman with Sketckes of Life, Manners and Characters in Russia. I have a great grandfather, SIR ROBERT MAY GARDINER (1819-1887) (not to be confused with Sir Robert William Gardiner) born in Nova Scotia and died in Fulham. His father was DAVID GARDINER (1786-1827), who was Scottish and went to Canada in 1811. I hope to find out if my family is the same one as the Gardiner/McKinlay family.
