This book presents the author's ancestry through the Tolme line. It describes in four parts the history of the Tolme line back to the 1550s in Scotland, then the lines of descent to Charles David Tolme (1792-1872), who served as British Consul in Cuba. Part 3 describes Tolme's nine children and their descendants, followed lastly by part 4, which describes the author's descent from Tolme's youngest child, Emily (1841-1893). There are many interesting stories and condensed biographies of family members in Germany, England, France and the USA. Relatives have made their mark in business, diplomacy, physics, radar development, astronomy, mathematics, arts patronage, writing, building construction, to name a few examples.
