Also, any advice on getting around without a car would be most welcome!
We will be flying into and out of Glasgow, and plan to spend some time
on Skye and exploring other places, but if I can get to the areas of
genealogical interest via train or coach, then I'll plan a few days
doing that. My husband won't be much interested in the research aspect,
but if there are interesting walks he could take while I "do my thing"
then we would both be happy!
I too am coming to Ayrshire and have asked before but will ask again since
the trip is coming up the 24th!. I have my long johns bought because I was
told that I will need them.
What does one do with a 21 yr old son while one is doing genealogy? My
people came from Irvine, Ayr, Dalry and my gr-gr-gr grandparents William Stirrat
and Jean Blair were married in Kilwinning. My info is William is buried in
the Irvine cemetary and Jean in St Margaret's Church in Dalry. William was born
in Donegal, Ireland and was on the poverty rolles.
Is there a local courthouse you go to for all of Ayrshire or is it town to
town? Are wills one place, land records another? Does the webpage have all
As redheads, my son and I look forward to being among others of our coloring.
