Re: How can I find where in Ireland GGF came from

On my mother's side, most of the fathers were named William Hay. Many of whom married ladies named Margaret ??? Your Hay's wouldn't be from the Moray Firth area? I know of a few Margaret Hay's up there. Back to your Logans. Alexander married Susan McKechnie in 1864 and she died in 1878. Not seeing ...

Re: How can I find where in Ireland GGF came from

[TS_welcome] Finding birth locations in Ireland is a hit or a miss especially the further back you go. Census information usually only gives Ireland not a county or townland name [though sometimes you can be lucky]. Coal mining, docking and navvy jobs were the sort of unskilled jobs often taken up b...

Re: When did Glasgow cease to be administered by the County of Lanark (Lanarkshire). ?

I think it also depends on what you mean by 'Glasgow'. The City as we know it today is very different from the city in the, not so distant, past before all the surrounding Parishes were brought in under the city boundaries.

Cause of death for executed prisoners?

Just a random thought.

Prompted by the article SP published on Facebook today about Dr Edward Pritchard, who poisoned his wife and Mother-in-law and was the last man publicly hanged in Glasgow.

Re: Accuracy

Have you tried census records? Both Scottish and Irish, you may pick him up with his parents even. You don't mention the time period, but the Irish 1901 & 1911 are at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/ I've been using https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp for trac...

Re: 1921 Census

My daughter had noticed this hidden away in the guides section of SP just this morning: We will release indexed images of the 1921 Scottish Census on scotlandspeople.gov.uk and in the ScotlandsPeople Centre in the latter half of 2022. We’ll keep you updated on progress via our digital channels. [/b]...

Re: Royal Artillery

Our Libraries are all open now but with restricted hours.
They are still giving us remote Ancestry access though - long may it continue!
Currently it's only for Full members.

Re: Royal Artillery

Hi Ailsa, I had a look on Ancestry [it's free through many libraries just now] There is a family tree with your Andrew D Hardie mentioned - but it isn't public. Other than that I've found his death and remarriage details : marriage: Edith E Ellis or Taylor in July 1952 Southampton death: Oct - Dec 1...
