    Don't forget that it must all be confirmed from the certificates and other documents. Scotlands People is reasonably priced, and the certificates are very informative.
    Enjoy!

    If you go to our Scottish section HERE, you will find a collection of stickies about Scottish searches and where to find the data. Much of it is different to England/Wales, but not all. For example,...

    Hmmm.. In that case, it looks as though I’m lucky that so many of the family on Mum’s side married their cousins and distant cousins. I even have one 18th century lady who married 3 times and I...

    Many thanks. It took a while to find the correct volume as the Internet Archive has several with different numbers of chapters. In the end, I chose the largest file, which was good.

    You're making this look easy! I thought my Uni account would let me in, but it seems not - we're a Univ of Technology. "Government agent" would explain a couple of things. Boyle WAS in contact with...

    Brilliant! Not only for the publication, but also for the fact that it gives his address in 1702! It would be nice to have a copy, but there’s no hurry. He comes under the heading of “fun when stuck...

    That’s him. It was in Birch that I first met him. All 4 volumes are on the Internet Arvhive, and fascinating. He wanders through vol 3 and the start of vol 4.

    THanks, Sue. I'll have a look for it.
    He's not seriously important, it just seems a bit of an achievement to still be an irritant after more than 300 years!

    This was a period during which some of...

    Since things are quiet at the moment, I thought I'd introduce you to Mr Oliver Hill. This man is not a member of my family, nor linked to my OPS. He's the man who sat quietly through the meetings of...
