Re: TalkingScot's 15th birthday

I lurked on the site for two and a half years before I registered. Either it was because of my slow computer, or that I couldn’t think of anything to say. I suspect that, sadly, many of the original TalkingScot members are now doing their genealogy “In the cloud”, so to speak. All the best, Alan Ju...

Re: Gellions Hotel Bridge St Inverness

Hi Wilma & Jenfef I don't get thread notifications but I do get message notifications - so I have replied to Jenfef after receiving a pm. I think we are 4th cousins - no doubt to be confirmed. Slightly daunting that this thread is 10 years old - seems like yesterday I was researching this branch of ...

Re: Ancestry dna

Thanks John I was thinking if they were into genealogy I would have found them online - as I found all the other distant cousins. I'm a little wary of the dna - but many thanks for your response - gives me more to think about. If I'd been doing this 30 years ago, I may well have made the trip to Ire...

Re: Married names

All the wills I have from Scotland refer to married woman as Mary Smith or Jones (both when making the will or as beneficiaries) - as mentioned by others. I find the census is hit and miss. A majority of my ancestors use their married names but a significant number are listed under their birth names...

Re: Ancestry dna

Has anyone found any Irish family through dna? I have found & contacted 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th cousins in US, Canada, Australia, NZ, England & Scotland without using dna. The only branch I haven't been able to trace outside Australia have been my Irish families - whose descendants came here in 1850s ...

Have you had a look for her sister too, if they remained nearby it could help tracking the other down.
I can't find the sister on the rolls mentioned by Carol. She may also have married. I did find her immigration form - she emigrated a few months before Martha.

Re: War Widow went to Canada

Thanks Carol. I looked on ancestry and couldn't find anything - so you did better than myself. I'm busy today but will check it out later. She was born c. 1890 so would be 72 in 1962 - possible.

I have all the family details from En...

Re: 1911 - Windows

I now live in one of those Frances. 2 bathrooms with fans and, as I call it, a hole in the wall laundry also with a fan. At least we still have windows in the bedrooms and living area!
