Re: Henry & Sarah Wright - Creswell, Derbyshire

I would suggest Derby Council Cemeteries department, would be the best bet, they would possibly control burials in the Area, and should hold lair records. Though like all places may not be open with Covid lockdown.

You can get a free trial subscription if those are the only records you want. Unless you have had a trial before.

Re: Greenock Telegraph/Glasgow Express 1917

There is a Greenock Telegraph and Clyde Shipping newspaper in Findmypast (British newspapers), ah but only 1900 - 1909. Maybe more dates will be in the pipeline?

The Port Glasgow Express is in Findmypast for 1917 72 articles for 17 January as well

Re: Name Change

Is Candow / Kandow Gaelic, and Kennedy being anglicised version. Have you seen any link to Jacobites? Maybe after 1745 might have had an impact depending on where they were from.

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: 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.
