Quick update on our One-Place study - it took us just over 40 hours to find and fully transcribe, the Statutory register of Births, Deaths, and Marriages between 1855 and 1960 plus a further couple of days to fully transcribe the 1911 Census for Kinclaven and Stanley.
We intend to publish the majority of these records in a searchable format very soon - anyone who has an ancestor or family history connections in Kinclaven or Stanley can request information here meantime free of charge.
The records contain detailed information that is not indexed online already and may help you to narrow down those frustrating searches on Scotland's People which turn up too many possible records - a recent case example included over 40 Margaret McKAYS born within a couple of years in one parish.
The Kinclaven Statutory Registers and 1911 census are the first of the genealogy records that we have in full in our database but we also have been busy digitising and collecting many other records from Kinclaven parish which we shall publish shortly. If you are making a day visit or planning a stay at one of the excellent hotels, B&Bs or self catering establishments to carry out ancestral research in the area contact us with your enquiry. One of our next goals will be to use the records to draw up a parish family tree! When we establish the best way to do this Old Scottish will be able to repeat the process for other parishes. If you have a parish you would like us to examine let us know. Follow us on facebook or twitter to stay up to date with our latest resources (opens new window).
