Re: Family Search Site

Recently I came across one tree, that had a guy married twice at the same time, what made it more laughable, one wife in Scotland, one in USA, the guy must have spent all his time travelling back and forward across the Atlantic having children every other year. Of Course he could have been a sailor!...

Re: Mothers maiden name on death record

Hi Ina, I can understand how either McCann or McEwan can be heard in McKeand - especially if there is a possible Irish lilt in the accent. I watched an online video last week about someone called Eoin from Ireland and through the years there name had been written as John, Iain, Owen and even Yohan, ...

Re: SP Credits

Although they say they are about to expire, they will always be there, in future if you need to lookup anything you would buy more credits and that six will be re-instated. So you won't loose them, unless you really have finished your Scottish links.

Re: Entire Donaldson's School Missing from 1881 LDS??

I seem to recall a friend not being able to find her Grandmother in the 1881 LDS census, but once the records came online properly in ScotlandsPeople, she suddenly appeared. There may have been a number of records/enumeration books not originally microfilmed/transcribed by LDS for some reason or oth...

Re: Seemingly Missing Marriage Record

There is a possibility that the record exists but the index has been mis-transcribed. You could contact Scotlandspeople, point them to the birth record give them the name, date and GRO ref number, that has the marriage details ,and see if they can find a marriage in the records that is incorrectly i...

Re: Records of paupers

These records are not available on the Ancestry membership level that I have. I see the index page and recognise quite a number of my lot, so I plan to move up to the next level for these records (and whatever else I gain access to). Essentials membership (£95.99 yearly) - no access to these record...

Re: Records of paupers

From the Poor law applications, there are 14 records for Neil Dougal, most are much later than yours. But one may be correct, was Neil married to an Isabella McCann, in 1861 living at 7 Byres Court, Cambusnethan. With children Peter, aged 7, Thomas aged 6 and Neil aged 3. This Neil is a miner aged 4...
