Re: CENTENARIANS.

Wow! What a tale :shock: He certainly lived a varied life, even though he never went very far from his birthplace.

Re: Alexander Forrester Farquharson birth

I'm not readily finding any trace of Pearce after that, but could he have called himself James? :roll: There is this family in 1860 who claim ...

Re: census download Ancestry

Hi Annette, The only way to share the Scottish census transcriptions is to transcribe them again yourself (what I usually do.) Otherwise, I suppose you could take a screen shot of each person's record in the household... Not as convenient as downloading the images of the other censuses! But useful t...

Re: John Robertson Watson

Hello Frances, I don’t normally have access to Fold3, but had noticed that there was free access during the pandemic through one of my other subscriptions (AmericanAncestors.org) and found the document.
