I obviously haven't been doing much Scottish research recently. Just had an email from SP telling me I have 6 credits - which I guess is one document - soon to expire. If someone would like to use my credits - answer here (I guess only the first answer will be valid) & PM the details. I think I have...

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...

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 ...
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...
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...
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 ...
Fanny Henderson married William Thomas Andrews in 1926. Martha was a witness. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G94V-79MH?i=1347&cc=1784216 Regards, Annette Many thanks Annette - the new family search continues to amaze me with its records - I seem to miss finding them sometimes. I p...
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.
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.
