Hello to all,
This is my first post to this list. I have been lurking in the background
for some time and have found this list to be very helpful and informative.
So thought perhaps you would not mind a dumb question here at the end of
I am interested in obtaining the marriage record of Daniel TAIT and Jessie
CLARK, October 29, 1875, married in Dalry. I contacted North Ayshire
Council in Kilbirnie and they informed me this marriage is registered in
Question: Would this registered record for 13.00 sterling (or $19.00 U.S.)
have the very same information as would the FHC film (2.50 U.S.) would have?
I am trying to understand if there is any difference in these two records??
Some of the TAIT children:
Thomas b. 1878
Daniel b. 1880
John b. 1882
Jane b. 1885
Robert b. 1888
James b. 1890
There were 4 or 5 more born after the 1891 census.
I believe there are still TAIT's living in Dalry today.
Any help will be much appreciated.
A happy and healthy New Year 2001 to everyone.

My husbands family tree was traced back to 1727. We are
trying to find pervious data. The Alexandar Carswell that
John is related to, married Isabelle Brown in County Clare,
Ireland. We have documentation that both he and his son John C. Carswell
fought in the American Revolutionary War.
Please let me know if this helps you, or if you have any
further information on the Carswells.
Thank You for Your Time -- Mrs. John Flood

No Thomas, but here's a couple that I haven't transcribed till now:
"September 20th (1856): William WALLACE, late of Dunhead, William STEVENSON,
Darclubock, and Mary CRAIG, Pokelly Haw, left this country for Australia. The
two latter were proclaimed three times on the Sabbath, married, and went away
next day. Quick work.
December 18th (1856): Agnes BOYD, Fenwick Town, died in her 86th year. Agnes
was a very quiet, industrious woman and was never married. James CRAIG,
farmer, Raithburn, died aged 61 years. His death was rather unexpected, as he
died about the time that the people were assembling for his sister's funeral.
He was spoken of as a hard, narrow, worldly-minded man. Next day died Mrs.
Stevenson, Darclubock, a woman up in years."
Hope it helps somehow.

Dear Jim, Do you think Stevensons in Fenwick would link up with those in
Fenwick? If so, I'd be fascinated to know if they mention a Thomas - he
married Jean Wyllie in 1758. Many thanks for your offer, Karen
This ships list is great, hope it helps

Wonder if anyone might have some interesting information relating to my
COCHRANE ancestors from Dunlop. Robert was born there in 1737 and married
Christian GILLIES of Linlithgow. Their son Thomas was born there in 1761
and he married Jean STEVENSON; their daughter Janet was born there in 1789
and she married Peter COUL/COLE in Beith. I'm not sure what I'm looking
for, but there are so many interesting pieces of information given via the
list that, well, I'd like some too! One of these days when my daughter is
off my hands I'll budge from London and browse and take copious notes in
libraries and record offices in Ayrshire - then maybe I'll be able to repay
some of the kindnesses to the next lot of 'Genies' - til then, it's you on
this wonderful list I'm turning to. Happy New Year. Karen

Wish to contact anyone researching the GOOD family that emigrated from
Scotland to Maryland about 1740.
Has there been a history published on the GOOD family from Ayrshire?
Thank you very much for posting the Grundy County, Illinois, USA URL. My
great Grandfather, James BRAIDWOOD and his wife Helen RALSTON are shown in
the Portrait Gallery at the URL you provided:
This site would be interesting to anyone who had coal mining immigrants to
I wrote a short biography of James BRAIDWOOD for the Coalminer's List some
months ago, and would be glad to share it with anyone interested. James
Braidwood worked as underground manager at "the Den" near Dalry, Ayrshire,
Scotland prior to his emigrating to USA in 1863.

As I start this second year on the Internet, I hope you all have a Happy
New Year and find all those missing ancestors. I'm enjoying the book, "Kon
Tiki" which also has those redheaded Celts in the Pacific on their way to the
Isles. Hope to have some of that Macallan whisky for next New Year's Eve.
Happy New Year and see you at the Gator Bowl,

Thanks for the information, I have been able to confirm Ellen and Mary

sure she would have a mention in the Kirk Sessions.

Was there any other mention of William BROWN, it would be nice to know if he
Would you mind sending me details of your RAMSAY line as I am doing a one
name Study of the name. Some of the RAMSAY's were real nomads, moving
around quite a lot. I will be happy to share any information with you.
The passenger lists of vestles arriving in NY, USA from Glasgow, 1869 are
currently unavailable and will be for some time. Does anyone know of any
other lists that i might check for William ADAMSON and family, who arrived NY
on NOV 1869 from Glasgow port? Don't know the date of embarkment or how long
voyage would have been.
To the list members:
I want to wish you all a terrific hogmanay! and Happy New
One day I was searching the sites and found the 1851 census for Ayrshire.
