Re: John Walker Cunningham

A map of the area (revised in 1910) can be seen via the following link. https://maps.nls.uk/view/75650937 Craighead is south-west of the centre of the map. Craighead Junction can be seen, and beside the road bridge there, you will see "S.B.". I take that to be a signal box, amongst many S.P. (presum...

Re: John Walker Cunningham

Hi Lizzie, At the top of the webpage that you view the certificate on, you should find a link pointing to the entry in the Register of Corrected Entries (RCE for short). Click on that link. Having paid to view the certificate, there is no further payment to view the RCE. See the example below from o...

Re: John Walker Cunningham

I take it from the ScotlandsPeople results index that the death was in 1907.

On using that for a search of The Scotsman archives, no results were found.

All the best,

Re: A nurse in an institution in Gourock, Renfrew in 1911

Hi Tish, When you go to the ScotlandsPeople page where you click to view the census page, there should be a button near the top to take you to the header pages. These are the first few pages of the census book. Normally these pages will describe the location of the census place (area or institution)...

Re: Re my 4 times Great Grandfather John Milne

I couldn't find much in the newspapers, only this advert. It looks like the same place. That's 4 horses and 12 head of cattle being sold. Seems a lot to be going all at once for a farm of only 22 acres. https://imgur.com/a/Q7cVTVI The Aberdeen Journal, Wednesday, March 10, 1830 ADVERTISEMENT. There...

TalkingScot has never held any records, so you never consulted the censuses here. What TalkingScot has is general information about the censuses, found at the following webpage, with associated sub-pages. http://www.talkingscot.com/censuses/census-intro.htm Also on TalkingScot is the TalkingScot Lib...

Re: The Great Storm of 1968.

A chimney stack in a tenement in the next street down from ours was blown over. I believe the stonework from that went through the attic and top flat into the next floor down.

I was of pre-school age at the time.

All the best,
