Re: Mothers maiden name on death record

Hi Ina and John, I would agree that those names can all be mistaken, one for the other. This raised a distant memory in my mind and I found another case in my notes where a different Agnes McCann (on her death certificate and one of her children's birth certificates) became McQuyon on her daughter's...

Re: Francis Laird

he married Louisa Jane Devlin Apr 9, 1871 I think there is a typo here, as he surely didn't marry at age 14! In the Australia, Marriage Index, 1788-1950 database on Ancestry.com there is a marriage for Louisa Devlin and Frank Laird in 1900 in Sydney, NSW. This was fairly late in life for a first ma...

Re: Francis Laird

Hello donlaird and a warm [TS_welcome] Tell us what information you already have and we will try to help you add to it. Do you have his birth record and census records? How about his parents?

Re: Where did you hear of TalkingScot? (2013)

Hi Tracey, welcome back! Out there, there are those who love their Macs. I believe they are the best thing for publishing, music and the like. I have always had a Mac since the very beginning when I was in graduate school in the 1980s. It was perfect for the sound analysis I was doing at the time as...

Re: English Records on Ancestry

Hello Shortfuse, Ross is correct that it would help to know the name of the record set you are referring to. When you pull up the information page, before clicking on View Image, is there a Volume and Page Number indicated? If so, search again with only the county, volume and page number and no name...

Hello Janice and a warm [TS_welcome] The original poster (Kate) has not been on the forum since 2011 :( but perhaps with a great deal of luck, (and if her email address hasn't changed in the interim) she will get a notification of your post. If you have any specific questions, I'm sure there are man...

Re: #52Ancestors Challenge

Is anybody else doing the 52 ancestors in 52 weeks challenge? I regularly start out composing write-ups every year since this challenge began a few years back... but never actually carry through to the end! In addition, I ignore the prompts and just write about an ancestor who interests me and who ...

Re: Problem with My Heritage

Dear Lorna, It is indeed good to be in touch again! I'm so sorry for the loss of your sister. I thought that Easton Girdwood was an individual! So no wonder I couldn't find him :roll: I now see the tree you mention. Martha Matthews(1906-1972) married Robert Clelland Girdwood (1907-1994) in 1934 in U...
