Time for a wee song

If I can stop laughing at Drew's post I'll sing a wee song (on second thoughts somebody else should sing 'cos my voice would spoil it) AE FOND KISS by: Robert Burns Ae fond kiss, and then we sever; Ae farewell, alas, for ever! Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee, Warring sighs and groans I'll...

You must have read my mind!

Hello Irene, I was just about to post a message about that very thing when I saw yours! I was going to say do not take that kind of info as 100% as sometimes our ancestors told 'little white lies' to get the help they wanted. We call them 'scammers' in Glasgow today! I think all the family's circums...

Hello, I know the age is slightly out but this lady might be worth investigating. According to the IGI Margaret was born to Elizabeth CARTNEY or ROSS in 1871. There is no sign of a marriage between CARTNEY and/or ROSS. Of course she may have nothing to do with your Elizabeth Ross at all. Dwelling: 2...

Hello Irene, Sorry for getting your name wrong earlier. I had a look the family on the IGI. If you post the address where Thomas was born in 1873 I could look that up the next time I'm at 'The Mitchell' although I don't know when that will be. Some one else might be there earlier than me though. Reg...

Hello Maria,

I'm sure if you post some details of the family, (such as where they lived, ages etc. ) someone may offer to help.
