Re: My DNA Journey as a newbie.....

Helen, Your DNA will stay on Ancestry (unless you ask to have it deleted) when you download the raw data to your desktop. It does not remove it from the site. Then, it is easy to upload it to GEDmatch. I have done it a number of times for different people and would be glad to answer any questions yo...

Re: Isabella Shewan - daughter of Mary Fraser, Alexander Shewan

Hello Rachel,

Does the paternity order mention his occupation or anything else about him? There are quite a few possible Alexander Shewans in the area in 1861.

Re: JAMES @ EDMUND.....

Hello Sonia, I see you never got an official [welcome] to [talkingscot] when you made your first post last month. It looks like Jen, the original poster, hasn't been on the forum since 2007 and probably doesn't know you have posted. We are glad you are here anyway and hope you can eventually get in ...

Re: Seeking William Strachan, Kincardine, 1817/18 - 1899

Hello Gordon and [TS_welcome] William and wife Mary are still in Dun, Angus in 1891, giving Laurencekirk as his birthplace as usual. Like you, I don't see his birth, so it may not have been registered or his family may not have been Church of Scotland. There were many Episcopalians in that area and ...
