Creating a sub-group?

ANGUS and MORAY List Owner
 

The members of the ANGUS Genealogy List are in favour of the list being included in the hierarchy as a sub-group of the Scotland-Genealogy group, but I do not know how to go about either creating a sub-group of Scotland-Genealogy, or moving my existing group into the hierarchy and changing the name to ANGUS@Scotland-Genealogy@groups.io.

The island of Lismore is the only Lismore listed in the Ordnance Survey Name Books (1850s).

However it makes up a united parish with Appin, on the adjacent mainland, so it is just possible that someone unfamiliar with the geography might get a bit confused.

My McLeay family were in Breachachy Kilmorack in 1841. Ann Campbell, wife of Farquhar McLeay is on the 1841 census as crofters widow. One of the daughters married Simon Frazer of Beauly. The McLeay family remaining went to Tasmania on the Storm Cloud in 1855.
When did Farquhar McLeay die and where is he buried? Who were his parents?

Re: NICOLSON of Isle of Skye Scotland. Also ROSIE of Scotland.

Joan Smith
 

I notice you have Nicholson and Macleod going to Canada. I have a James Nicholson b.1826 and a Effie Macleod b.1836 coming from Scotland to Canada. They settled on P.E.I. It had to be around the early 1860s because my ggrandmother was born in 1864 on P.E.I. and her oldest sister was also born there. It seems the Nicholsons and Mcleods married each other often. The only thing I don't have are the parents of either James or Effie. I just know that they married in Scotland and then went to Canada. Would you have anything on the couple.

Ok - final thought -
Listening :D

I have also found a middle name associated with a very close friend who was a neighbour (found by accident on a census). You may want to examine the census listings for 1851/61/71 and see if any of the neighbours of James' parents had the surname DALLAS.  Yes, its not likely, but I guess you are looking for any line of enquiry.
I did wonder about it being the name from a friend but I couldn't see a way of finding out - your suggestion may be the proverbial needle in a haystack but certainly worth a look,

Re: Two suggestions regarding names of interest

Hello.

I have two suggestions for people, regarding names of interest.

The first, is, when posting a message with the name of someone that you
are researching, put the name in the message subject line, so that
people can easily see it, when scanning the lists of message subjects,
when we are looking for names that interest us; name (best in all
uppercase), place, and, year.

Thanks so much for saying this, Bret! Your subject line is your "advertising" -- especially to those folks who read this group in a weekly digest. Give them something they want to click on! 

The second, is, for each family name that you have, of interest, when
you have posted your message, go to the group web page, and, at the top
of the group web page, you should see a menu item "Find or Create a
Group". click on that, which will take you to a Search web page, and, do
a search to find whether a group exists for the family name; if so, join
it, and post a message also to that group, about your person/people of
interest, related to that name, if you have not already.

And, remember - we who are migrating Rootsweb lists to groups.io groups,
are doing this on an ongoing basis, so, I am currently doing it at the
rate of two or three a day, and, with other Rootsweb List Administrators
doing this, the name groups are being added to, daily, so, it is worth
checking weekly, if not daily, to find whether your names of interest,
have name genealogy groups, at groups.io .

As a single example, the Rootsweb Kane mailing list, got migrated to the
Kane-genealogy group, in the last day or so.

The more places that a fisher sets a line, the more chance of obtaining
a catch, and, the potential to catch more.

Another good point. I have a number of surname lists too, and they are an excellent way to find cousin researchers. Locality lists are great because local people know the land, people and records. Surname lists focus on the family group through time and migrations. So they are both worth "fishing" in. 

Fish in all the ponds!
