Re: 1911 Scottish Census

Hi Tracey, I didn't see that thread :oops: . I could have posted from the comfort of a London bound train whilst discovering the frustration that you can't view images on an iPhone! All in all, I think identifying faces on old postcards was more exciting than discovering family members in the census...

Re: A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada

Hi Dale, I'm unclear as to how they might be related other than that two forenames match the two Wisharts you are researching? If they are related to Christopher then I would suggest that they are two of the many Dumfriesshire Wisharts who have not had baptisms recorded but who show up in later reco...

1911 Scottish Census

Has anyone had a play? It's been quite speedy all day, although maybe that will change this evening? Aside from finding all my family (very easily), I was pleased to be able to use the schedules to identify faces on a few more old postcards that only had 'bits' of names on them, by looking at neighb...

Re: A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada

Hi Dale, Any siblings of John would have been born on or after 1762, however I have found evidence that John's father (Andrew) was probably married before. John had a son William, although I've not found evidence of any 'Alexanders'. Having said that, there is another unproven line of the same tree ...

Re: A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada

Dear All, Many thanks for your help with this. Dale, as we've now corresponded (unless you are another Dale?) I'm afraid there are even more questions - albeit in a positive fashion! I've made a note of everything you've told me and am convinced that the Christopher who died in 1853 is part of the t...

A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada

Hello, I've found mention of a Christopher Wishart on ancestry who appears to have arrived in New Brunswick, Canada during 1775. He is recorded in Donald Whyte's book 'A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada before Confederation - Volume 1" on page 429. Does anyone have access to this publicati...

Re: Queen Victoria saves on telegrams

This post made me smile as I'm currently working on a family tree that includes the following Scottish individual, who was alleged to have lived until 125 years old! There are several newspaper reports and a number of other sources related to this, although probably like many people with such claims...
