Re: Looking for Barbara Millar & Robert Lindsay marriage

Hi Daryl, I don't see any sign of the marriage on ScotlandsPeople. These are on submitted trees on FamilySearch. You may need to contact the people that made the submission there to seek their sources - looks like some of it came from the US 1860 census. Another one quoted there is a baptismal recor...

Re: Early change to Scotland death registration format

I can understand the comment about the long list of children born of the deceased. See here such information from the death certificate of my g-g-g-g-grandfather, Joseph Downs in 1855 in Slamannan, listing his widow and 14 children (13 surviving and 1 deceased at that time).

Re: 1921 CENSUS

The 2021 census in Scotland was also delayed - by a year and is planned to take place in March 2022 due to Covid-19. The census took place on its planned 2021 date in England, Wales and (I think) Northern Ireland. For genealogists, this could give two anomalous conditions compared to other censuses,...

Re: 1921 Census

In SP's defence, they (NRS - the National Records of Scotland) had possibly planned a release around now before Covid came along. For the duration of Covid, they will have had many of their staff furloughed or working from home. This staff working, whether at home or in the office have had much of t...

Re: 1921 Census

That's disappointing. The 100 year closure period finishes in the next few days. I was expecting to have a whole new lot of information to rummage around in. Alas we will all have to wait.

All the best,

Re: Can anyone decipher this name?

Hi RAAAMMY,

It could be "Frederick", but I cannot say that with 100% certainty.

All the best,

Re: searching for Archie McFarlane

You set my curiosity going... I took a look at the birth certificate, and my interpretation of the birthplace is: Coto, Laighwood, Clunie. On looking at the maps of the time, I have a 'good' suggestion for it: Cothole, which is close to Old Laighwood, and near to Laighwood, all at the west end of Cl...
