Thank you Edie. So many people in Scotland came to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, USA and South Africa when times were so tough in Scotland. Many who stayed were sent to homes which this site proves.

My G Grandfather came with his parents to Canada in 1872 and returned to Scotland to wed his sweetheart in Arbroath before coming back to Canada. All of my Herd/Hird family comes from Arbroath tho the Herd/Hird family seem to have come from Fife. I recall this man as he lived until he was 98 and have fond memories of him. Longevity seems to run for many in my family. My Dad, Laurie Smith (his mother was a Hird) lived until he was 96 and he had two sisters who lived until 99 - almost 100 year.

With so many people leaving Scotland and the Scottish people settling all around the world, you decision to stay on the general list makes a lot of sense to me. Thank you and I will post any further information that comes to hand on the Scottish people.

I have found in the past as well, that when you try to just be on a Name list for a particular country instead of a name list for all over, it soon drops off. When browsing the rootsweb list prior to this list, to see which was the most active, I found the Scotland list rather than the county list seemed to be the most active and most of the others were dormant already. I hope to subscribe to Renfrewshire, but I dont think it will be any more active than the Rootsweb one. What may save the lists is the fact you can now put images over on groups.io, that you were not able to on rootsweb.. That will be a plus I think.

Not sure if anyone is interested, but found this on the Stout Family - actually came to me from Australia from a fellow genealogist. We both have Stouts in our background tho its on my GG Grandmother’s side.

Thanks Anne, but I was already subscribed to the Islay subgroup, I just didn't want all the other ScotGen messages.  When I tried to manage that in "My Groups", asking to unsubscribe from just ScotGen also got me unsubscribed from the Islay subgroup.  I have now tried the "Subscribe" link on the main Islay page and await results.

Hi Margaret,  Thank you for contacting me but I can’t see any connection between your names and mine.  I have no Nicholsons with given names of May or Duncan but plenty of Marys. 

 

Do you have any dates for those people?

 

I have an Allan Nicholson (spelt Nicolson on Skye) who went to Ontario (Kinloss) in 1862.  I have names of many of his descendants but no May or Duncan in his tree.

 

Cheers…Ian

Hi Ian, I am trying to research my Stepmother-in=laws family. 

She was May Nicholson her father was Duncan and her mother was Marie Unknown.  I am just at the beginning of the search and really don't have much information.  I am not sure if it was her parents  or grandparents who were born in Skye and came to Canada. So far I haven't had any success finding marriages or births in Canada.

However as I said I have only started the search and unfortunately she died a year ago so I can't get any more information from her  and the family are  only now showing an interest.

My family history is all in  the main land in Scotland and Ireland.

 

Take Care

Hi,

 

I am researching the NICOLSONS of Glenmore on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, and trying to find out what became of Ann NICOLSON who was born at Glenmore on 1 Sept 1865 to parents Archibald NICOLSON & Margaret MACLEOD.

 

I have found Ann aged 5 on the 1871 census and 15 on the 1881 census with her parents.  She is not on the 1891 census (with her parents) so may have married by then or living with another family.

 

I obtained a marriage certificate from Scotlands People but it was the wrong one.  It showed a marriage of an Ann Nicolson to John Nicolson in 1890 but the bride's parents were John Nicolson & Jane Stewart (wrong parents).

 

I would like to hear from anyone who is researching this NICOLSON family.

 

Thank you,

Ian, Australia

Re: Burial in Glasgow 1840 - where?

Rosemary
 

Thank you Fiona and 'rjpaton' for your replies.

I'm inclined to think he was buried at Glasgow Necropolis although the burial register is not at all clear. I still don't understand why two different records give his burial in apparently different places - 'St. Mary's' and Glasgow High Church. And he won't have had a memorial stone to mark his parting.

And if so, which church is it?
From what I've managed to find so far there is a St. Mary's church but it's Roman Catholic, not Church of Scotland and it wasn't opened until 1842.
But I have just found on FindMyPast a record of his burial at Glasgow High Church, Glasgow [2]
Is Glasgow High Church, Glasgow Cathedral? There was a large burial ground there which opened in 1833. [3]

Re: Thomas Smith b 1854 in Shetland

Lauraine Syrnick
 

I also had this information plus a lot more as his brother was my G Grandfather who married Eliz. Albright called Laurence Smith who came to Canada with the Hudson Bay Co.   I have most of Eliz. Albright information except still looking for my late 3x Great Grandmoher,  a Nicol/Nichol tho have both her marriages.  Just missing her parents and it says in the U.S. Census she was born abroad a ship in 1800 Ha ha. She had her family in Quebec but moved with her 2nd husband to U.S.

Thomas seems to be impossible to find - so many Thomas Smith and know he was the youngest child of Laurence & Anderina.  For anyone who is trying to find more information on anyone born on Shetland please see:
