 As we quite often encounter the common name problem (i.e. 600 James names), we are continuously amending trees as we enter census records.  

We also find record problems as to where those illusive Birnies immigrated. And English records for example are very expensive to acquire.

If you have any access to any immigration records, Please send them in.

Please note that we do include some early data that does not have documentation. If confirmed by documentation, we list the source reference number.  We also avoid entering religious, medical, or social info (etc.), just the basic historic data. It’s up to you to add to your family tree.

COPIES of Scottish documentation may be purchased from Scotland’s People for a nominal charge.

We do NOT recommend publishing Family trees on the Internet. Family security is critical!
