Re: Records of paupers

These records are not available on the Ancestry membership level that I have. I see the index page and recognise quite a number of my lot, so I plan to move up to the next level for these records (and whatever else I gain access to). Essentials membership (£95.99 yearly) - no access to these record...

Re: Records of paupers

From the Poor law applications, there are 14 records for Neil Dougal, most are much later than yours. But one may be correct, was Neil married to an Isabella McCann, in 1861 living at 7 Byres Court, Cambusnethan. With children Peter, aged 7, Thomas aged 6 and Neil aged 3. This Neil is a miner aged 4...

Re: Records of paupers

I think you may still have to be a registered user to view the records though not a subscriber. You can have a free account with Ancestry, that allows you to search records you just can't view the results, unless they have their free weekends etc. Though can't be sure as I subscribe. So perhaps DC c...

Re: Angus McNaughton/Margaret Young Hutchison(Hutchinson)

Maria, Another option is joining a Scottish Family History Society, if you are not already a member, many societies will do a small amount of research (for a reasonable fee), i.e visiting the Scotlandspeople hubs either in Edinburgh or Glasgow or Kilmarnock (Ayrshire), at least they would be able to...

Re: What software to choose

Personally I use Family Tree Maker, and find it easy, though that may be because it was the first program I used for Family History. The drawback is there is no app for iPhone or iPad. So for those I do convert my Family Tree Maker file into RootsMagic (the free version), and can then use their app ...

Your username for login in to the site will remain the old address. If you still have...
