This topic was discussed on one of the boards on Genes recently. On it, someone gave an example of a relative who'd been mean with information, suggesting it may have been because the person was Scottish. :roll: I didn't embarrass him by responding on the forum, but sent a pm suggesting he revise hi...

Sorry I can't help you Tish, but I'd be interested in an answer to this one too. I have a horrible death in 1865 (cut throat) and the local newspaper reports it as suicide. As the supposed reason for this was poverty, there's no chance of finding a headstone, but it occurred to me he may not have be...
David : this one might be of interest to you? It's not mine, but on the same page as one of mine who drowned (did she jump or was she pushed?) in the Forth & Clyde Canal. 1877 A wee baby of 4 weeks - cause of death - "Suffocation caused by deceased being too closely wrapped up and held too closely t...
I'm feeling a bit maudlin :( Poor Edward was only 16 when he died in Quarter Pit in Denny (not in the huge explosion in 1895 - this was in 1867). Cause of death is not stated, the cert simply says "not certified", and the death was not registered for more than two weeks after the death. Also, the in...

Not a lot of traffic on this board, but I hope someone might be able to give me a pointer. :) I've found an ancestor in the 1861 census - George Bateman in Dunipace, Stirling - who was born in "Wales" - wife Lucinda (Woods) born "Ireland". I know George died in 1865 in Scotland, his children were bo...

Not perhaps for the faint hearted though, the kirk session took their duties very seriously Not the only ones Thrall. I visited the Society of Genealogists in London at the weekend (to help my English friend), and we found some records from a Roman Catholic Church. Similar to Kirk Session Records, ...
This continues to drive me bats. No more info on John/Alison/the weans, so I started on John's siblings. His brother Peter, born in 1836, married Martha Young in 1859 in Tranent. They had 7 children - Helen 1873, Marion 1871, Margaret 1868, George 1866, Peter 1864, Francis Young 1861 and James 1859....
