Re: Alvie parish in Badenoch

I was about to post Lyn and ask for a 1700s geography lesson but this has done a lot of it for me. Are you another McBain hunter? My Scottish roots are 99% in the central belt, and no McBains found so far. The NLS maps website is a great resource. It is well worth raking around. Have plenty time wh...

Re: New year's images online at SP (2021)

Hi Derek, Probably late June 2021; certainly not before as that is when the 100 year closure will expire. The 1921 census was a record of people overnight on 19th to 20th June that year. That question was asked of ScotlandsPeople on Facebook recently and that was their response. All the best, Andrew...

Re: Mysterious death

Hi Ailsa,

As regards surname 'Kelwee', to me it looks like a variation (misunderstanding?) of surname 'McElwee' or 'McIlwee', a name of Irish origin.

All the best,

Re: Please decipher this baptism

See here a close-up of the page from ScotlandsPeople.

All I can add is that S B should be L S (Lawful Son). Others on the page are all LS or LD (lawful son or daughter).

See what else you may see in this version.

All the best,

Re: Mary Hanson born 29 March 1806

Curiosity go the better of me and I looked at the OPR showing the baptism of Mary Hanson in Perth in 16 April 1806; born 29 March 1806. There is no record on that page or the next page for a Henry Hanson, so it is not that the baptism was recorded, but had escaped the indexes.

All the best,

Re: census 1921

Probably June 2021, when its 100 year closure is past. The census represents who was where overnight 19th to 20th June 1921.

All the best,
