Re: Millwright in Stirling and Glasgow

The Special Collections department of the Mitchell Library (5th Floor) have Sighthill's Burial Registers on microfilm.

I've come across a few women's first names which made me 'double-take'.

Amongst them are Graham, Nicholas, Mitchell, McGregor and Falconer.

I've lost count of the females called male names with an 'Ina' or 'Ena' stuck of the end (Jamesina, Andrewina etc.,)
