Great resource, Annette. I'll have to check to see if any of mine are mentioned.

Many thanks!

I've already been in with the first few reference numbers for some of my family. It's amazing!

The chap on the desk said they have been quite busy since it was publicised.

Was home last week and spent a day in Paisley Library where the 2 chaps couldn't have been more helpful. I had so many family members in the records that I was there for hours taking pictures of the pages. There were too many to take notes in my limited time. Hopefully next time I can get from the M's to the Z's. :lol:
