I only came back from a book fair in Bath yesterday, and passed the site on to my troops on E-mail. So far the day I have had nine rep...

The furthest back I can go is 1787 and I am not 100% on that! I just thought it interesting to see only the one name coming...

While perusing some records looking for the surname Cunzie (various spellings) I came across a marriage of William to a lassie, Christina Fairnie.

On my wee world “Planet Glasgow” a poster is a big dod o’ paper that weans kin pin up oan ther wall, and in this case, tae possibly help wey ther education ....

Free Treaty of Union Poster

Well not exactly free. You have to purchase the Sunday Times. Well worth the £1,90p in my opinion, for the poster, not the paper. Perhaps another member can give their opinion. The poster has paintings of the main players and a wee time line. I am sorry I am not allowed to send out any to you on her...
