Re: Breach of the Registration Act.

Thanks, Alan
What a variety of ways one could get in trouble! :shock: It seems a bit arbitrary - the gentlemen in Stirling only being fined 2s and then poor Margaret MacBeath of Latheron 18 months later being fined 25s and expenses :(

Re: CENTENARIANS.

Thanks again, Alan! Thanks to you, I've learned a new word today, "pawky" [cheers] Not sure how I did without it up to now... I'm sure my Scottish ancestors could have told me, but they've been sadly silent recently :?

Best,
Sarah

Re: CENTENARIANS.

Thanks, Alan! Interesting to read what lives were like back then. I suspect if I make it that far, they will also say "though she did not possess a very retentive memory" while skimming vaguely over my life story. :lol:

Re: CENTENARIANS.

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

I was just rereading my great grandfather's account of the locust invasion in Kansas in the 1870s -- those horrible grubs sound equally ghastly...

Thanks again, Alan

Re: Alexander Forrester Farquharson birth

Hello soosan and a warm [TS_welcome] The parents’ marriage is there, right enough, on 1 April 1826 and father Andrew’s birth/baptism in 1806, but I don’t see the birth records for any of the children that one sees in the family on the censuses. Could it be that there is a gap in the existing West Li...

Re: Pearce Carmidy USA

Well, they are certainly an elusive bunch :? I can't find Pearce anywhere, nor can I find Mary Fo(r)ster. There are two Foster men in Eaton, Eaton County, Michigan (3 miles from Charlotte) in 1850, both born in England -- possibly Sarah's brothers? Their spouses and children were all born in Ohio. 1...

Re: Pearce Carmidy USA

Hi Annette, You are giving us a challenge by not indicating any dates... but I'm guessing this was the family that sailed from Liverpool to New York in 1858. 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...
