Re: Stirling Old Churchyard location

If you look at an aerial or bird's eye view (Google/Bing Maps), the Kirkyard is directly 'behind' the Church or looking at the view, to the left. Marr Cemetery sits 'above' this and is opposite Argyll's Lodging. Valley Cemetery sits to the left of both of them. Snowdon Cemetery is to the far left of...

Re: Millwright in Stirling and Glasgow

The Special Collections department of the Mitchell Library (5th Floor) have Sighthill's Burial Registers on microfilm. It's a hit or a miss whether the pages can be read however - some are so feint that no details can be made out at all. There are a number of reels spanning the years, so providing y...

Falkirk District Cemeteries (Genealogy)

I thought I had read a post on the forum regarding Falkirk Cemeteries Office intimating their intention to start charging £26.00 per search for 'look-ups' within Falkirk District cemeteries? (If this has been posted already, then my apologies for not finding it.) See here: http://www.falkirk.gov.uk/...

Re: RULE, Henry b 1922 falkirk

Loads of 'Rules' buried in Camelon Cemetery but obviously any relationship with the Henry in question is unknown. Possibly once his parents are identified we could get a connection.

(I have a copy of the Internments CD's)

Re: What's in a name ?

I've come across a few women's first names which made me 'double-take'.

Amongst them are Graham, Nicholas, Mitchell, McGregor and Falconer.

I've lost count of the females called male names with an 'Ina' or 'Ena' stuck of the end (Jamesina, Andrewina etc.,)

Re: Place of Marriage

A case of the information being recorded according to the informant's details/knowledge? Those being not correct for one reason or another?

Otherwise - not a clue!

Re: Mitchell Library

Depends on which department you intend to visit.

Archives and Library - no appointments necessary, but if it's the Registrar's section (BMD's etc.) then you'd be best to book a seat in advance.

Re: Where do I go to now ?

Sorry to hear of your lack of luck finding your relatives. It wasn't until around mid way through the 1880's that most cemeteries were established, prior to this, burials were in Churchyards. (There are of course, exceptions to this - Glasgow Necropolis, Sighthill, the Southern and Eastern Necropoli...
