SP Centre

I see that booking a search place is now done only online and that you need your SP account to book a place.

Do you still use your SP Centre username at the Centre or is it now linked to your SP login details?

Multiple entries

I have an entry in the Innerleithen OPR where the whole family is shown on the same page in 1805 but the births and baptism dates are spread over a period from 1796 to 1805. Does this imply that they had recently moved to the area or simply that something had prompted them to have the births recorde...

Re: Why 2 birth certs

The first birth of the family is in the Traquair OPR in 1854. The one in question was the second birth. The 1861 census shows them as living in Innerleithen. It therefore looks like they lived in Traquair and at some point moved to Innerleithen - which ties in nicely with what Andrew says. Thanks ve...

Why 2 birth certs

I have someone who was born in Innerleithen and the birth is registered in Innerleithen on 15/1/1867. Then on 28/1/1857 there is an entry in Traquair Parish and in the "where and when registered column" it states "1857 January 15th at Innerleithen. January 28th Transcribed at Traquair". Does this me...

Re: SP Image reference

Andrew Thanks for the explanation. On looking further, it appears that any image that I obtained on 3/9/2016 and before has a heading with the record number for the first record on the page. The images I have from 9/10/2016 and after have the correct record number in the heading. Would these dates c...

SP Image reference

In ScotlandsPeople, I have a saved image for the death of Lucy Hope in 1907. On the image, the heading says "1907 (Statutory registers Deaths 768/0 10)", but the record header in my list of saved images says"1907 HOPE, LUCY (Statutory Deaths 768/00 0012)". If I do a search today, the ref is given as...

Re: Payments to Kirk Sessions

Thanks for the information. I did not know that Kirk Sessions gave loans to those in need and the considerable amount involved seems to fit with the idea of a loan. If the loan was to help those on hard times, its seems odd that the bill was to two different people (though the same name). Looking th...

Payments to Kirk Sessions

In the Traquair Kirk Sessions, I came across an entry in 1738 where a bill was presented for payment to James Hope, a shoemaker in Peebles and James Hope a merchant in Peebles for the sum of 120 Scots Pounds. No detail was given as to what this sum was in payment for. Allowing for 12:1 Scots Pounds ...
