Re: New Zealand Records

Greetings. Just checking in. I don't stop by very often these days, as my research in Scotland ran out of 1700's records, that I could conclusively tie to family that emigrated in the 1840's to 1860's. Now VERY active using Archives NZ records to re-discover our pioneering ancesters, and how they pi...

Re: TalkingScot Admin - Russell

Greetings from down under. Belated condolences to RUSSELL'S family, and his extended genealogy family. Did not realize it's been so long since I last logged on, though computer down time plus doing 1,000 km per week, looking for spring cattle purchases I could afford to buy, did not help. Perhaps I ...

Re: New User Needing Help Please

Greetings
I would love to help you, but I don't see any details about the person you are looking for.
May I suggest that you contact the poster via a PM as it appears that search information may also involve the living.

Alan SHARP.

Re: New Zealand Records

You are WELCOME, as is a helping hand. Been an extremely busy time for me of late, with enforced time out adding to my schedule. In March had both eyes done for cataracts, and am now again in recovery mode having had Dupuytren's surgery on my hand. That and the Haemochromotosis discovered two years ...

Re: David Gillespie - Immigrated to New Zealand 1871-82

Greetings again.

I have been advised by a NZ researcher whom I respect, that nothing obvious appears in the records usually consulted, for either Robert or Peter.

Must dash.

Re: David Gillespie - Immigrated to New Zealand 1871-82

Greetings from NZ. Snowed under at the moment to do much research for you, but I know of a lady who quite likes doing look-ups for folks in THE OLD COUNTRY. I have referred others to her, so hopefully she will have some time available to assist you. She is not a member of this site, so in the first ...

Re: TalkingScot temporarily offline

Good Morning [Evening Andrew.] I have called back again for a quick look and all is well, got straight in. Thanks for the update. I've just made the [to me] gigantic leap from an 2003 XP and older programmes to MS Home and Business 2016, on a big new computer. Still struggling to find my way through...

Re: April 25th ANZAC Day – LEST WE FORGET-

Greetings All. Well it is nearly six years on, and once again ANZAC day is fast approaching, and I get yet another reminder of the power of the internet and TALKINGSCOT in particular, when this morning I got an email telling me that TALKINGSCOT was holding a private message for me. Just my luck that...

Re: New Zealand Records

Greetings from New Zealand. As always too many half done projects on the go, and still trying to farm despite being on the pension. As I've now got to some brick wall in Scotland, I'm not back here as often as in the past, but only too happy to return favours by assisting with NZ research, where abl...
