Re: census download Ancestry

Hi Annette, The only way to share the Scottish census transcriptions is to transcribe them again yourself (what I usually do.) Otherwise, I suppose you could take a screen shot of each person's record in the household... Not as convenient as downloading the images of the other censuses! But useful t...

Re: John Robertson Watson

Hello Frances, I don’t normally have access to Fold3, but had noticed that there was free access during the pandemic through one of my other subscriptions (AmericanAncestors.org) and found the document. There is way too much information for me to type it out on the forum, so I have downloaded the im...

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!

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

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...
