Hi Alysone I had a look at Agnes Selkirk ms Penman's death. Parents John Penman and Janet Livingstone. So either Agnes was Alice (could she have been Sailor Agnes with a touch of Chinese Whispers) or did James 1863 remember grandmother when it would have been great-aunt (however many greats are invo...

No good news re poor relief Haddington. Received very prompt reply saying the records for Inveresk, they believe, are at NAS. They hope to obtain the records when they move into their new history centre in 2010. Which in itself is good news I suppose, as no doubt we'll still be in the thick of this....

never mind "disappearing" for a long weekend, or longer now and then , especially if we just happen to take a fancy to a short or long weekend in Rome Perhaps if TS had the equivalent of Trevi Fountain and we all threw in a coin with David's name on it, he'd be certain to return here often. :D I'm ...

Thanks for the hint Jack - I'll do that now, once I'm clear about what I'm asking them - I may be some time :) As for the marriage entry for Andrew and Margaret, the banns were called in both Newbattle and Borthwick parishes but neither yielded anything of interest. I was rather hoping the kirk woul...

Ah! Sometimes my dense-ness is stunning! I see it now. The second line contains a hyphen and the "et" to finish off Margaret. I read it as "at ... somewhere I couldn't read beginning with K or H" - duh! :oops: Thanks Andrew. Now I need to see Andrew and Margaret's marriage entry which should be on t...

Alysone - Ever decreasing circles - I think we may fall into a black hole soon :lol: Andrew - What you say re 1827 makes sense but I'm still a wee bit lost here. Is the record for Andrew Scougal saying he is the son of Andrew Scougal and Margaret (end of record) OR is he the sone of Andrew Scougal a...

Hi Guys - It gets worse by the minute! But that's par for this course :lol: I think the Purves/Ormiston couple will be something to do with us Alysone, but I suspect not the answer to Joan, so I wouldn't go pushing any buttons just yet. (I'm scared of what path we might have to go down next) :wink: ...

Hi guys I'm in from my vegetable patch too (first shift anyway). I agree Alysone that it's often worth getting off the motorway and taking the scenic route :lol: Jack says: Isabella ORMISTON looks to be the daur of Mary DARLING (either illegitimate, or from a previous marriage). And that some time a...

I am also in awe!

Jack & Alysone After a minor technical problem concerning one modem and several passwords :evil: I have at last gone through all Jack's information and entered it all in my programme - the fog has cleared :lol: Jack your presentation was so clear and logical it was a joy to work through, and there's...
