MEIKLE - A One Name Study

I began researching the Meikle family because of my paternal Grandmother - Agnes Templeton Meikle Thompson. My earliest, and some of my fondest, memories include her. She died when I was 12 years old. These pages are in her honor, and a way for me to fulfill a promise I made to her when I was young, and one I have since made to her memory.

I have reorganized the Meikle pages. Hopefully, the new format will make it easier to study. Additions, corrections and suggestions are always welcome!
