Thanks Valorie.  I am glad I am not the only one having teething problems. But okay now.  Thanks for taking the list on.

Err, I see that I didn't state that very clearly. The email to address this group is now Scots@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io. Previously it was Scotland-Genealogy@groups.io which will not work. Briefly it was main@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io - that will no longer work either.


Subgroup email addresses remain as they were originally assigned.

It's not a difficult job, although filling up the wiki with useful information, fine-tuning the subgroup settings, etc. take some minutes. Speak up and we can grant you the necessary powers.

Hi Valorie,
I think I have it right after initial teething problems. I am subscribed under both my email servers now. Bigpond and gmail, the way I was at rootsweb lists. So hopefully I am properly subscribed.  I had been receiving and posting messages okay before that, but at the same time being told I wasnt subscribed. That now seems to have stopped. I had clicked on the main @scotland address like you told me to and was getting the error message each time.  All is okay now at the moment thanks.

Happy to hear that thanks to Bret calling my attention to this problem, we appear to have it solved. 

I have posted messages but understand you saying those messages wont appear in the archives as this is just a test period, so the messages will have to be entered after 2 march.  Do I have that correct please?

Actual genealogy and family history posts will stay. But we'll delete all the "testing" posts. Feel free to test and also post actual queries, data and questions about Scotland and Scots genealogy and family history.

Hi from Canada

Goldie & Lido Doratti
 

And Thank you to the good folks who thought this idea up!!  Listers are wonderful folks, I have learned much from them!  Names in my Family Tree are -
INNES, PIRIE, SHEARER, EGO (Cairnie/Gartly/Huntly area).  The brick wall starts with a John Innes m a Thomson 1740 Gartly, had a baby same year, no sex, no name given and no witnesses related to either parent.  He remarried in 1744 Isobel Pirie from Kennethmont and had 4 sons, George 1745, John 1747, Alexander 1750, Adam 1751/2.  Adam is my proven line.  No idea what happened to the others.  I also have a McGREGOR tree, with a James who married Mgrt Allan from Grange 1766, and no idea who his parents were.  I suspect another James and Elizabeth McQueen from Cairnie.  Goldie

New List for Scotland

Joseph Gillard
 

Hullo

This is a great initiative and worthy of the saying that out of adversity, comes success!

My interests in Scotland are BLAKIE/BLAIKIE and HALL in Rox, c1800 onwards who came to New Zealand in 1860. Also, DEANS, PURVES and BUCKHAM in Edinburgh and Stirling, c1800 onwards. They were convicted 1845-50 and earned a free passage to Tasmania.

Thanks

STEPHENS/PRATT

Judy Last
 

Trying to find out more about JAMES STEPHENS who married HANNAH PRATT or BRETT on 9 April 1775 at St Cuthberts, Edinburgh.  I can't find their births, although I do know that Hannah's father was named Thomas!  

James and Hannah were my 4 x Gt.Grandparents, and their daughter EMELIA STEPHENS was my 3 x Gt.Grandmother.  I have been unable to find a birth/baptism for her (born about 1779) or her sister Eleanor (born about 1781).   A son was born on 21 Feb 1776 in Edinburgh and named DAVINELL ??? (could this have been Daniel mistranscribed)?   Nothing more is known or has been found of Davinell.

James and Hannah with Emelia and Eleanor, did move to Birmingham, England possibly before 1795 and died there.

Any help finding them in Scotland would be fantastic!
