Re: Merry Christmas 2017

It was a Merry Christmas in my corner of the world and it was snowy and now it is bitterly cold.

Re: TalkingScot Admin - Russell

So sorry to read of Russells passing. While never meeting in person I always had a good feeling about the persona that came through in his posts. Condolances to his family and those who knew him best! Have attended 2 funerals already this month and now this news. A genuine month of sorrows.

Re: John Stewart merchant seaman in the 1860's in Dundee

I have viewed the birth records of Margaret in 186...

Re: Seasons Greetings to All on TS

Merry wishes to all from the northern tier of New England where my thermometer hit 60F yesterday. My poor irises are trying to sprout from the ground 4 months early. Santa was very good though and managed to get around without the white stuff this year. Cold and first snow is predicted for next week...

Re: Can anyone find HELEN SCOTT's birth record ?

Hi MacSmirkey I've had a look at a few records and tried to piece together a past for your Helen prior to her marriage in 1857. It seems that nothing quite matches 100% no matter how you look at it but here are my thoughts. You've done all the normal searching by parent names and found two couples b...
