    3. Please note that from 13th December 2017, all “patrons” (users) will need to have a free FamilySearch Account to continue to access the site http://www.familysearch.org There is a "learn more” option in the banner notification on the home page. Users can also use the “Create your free account now.” link. I have had an account for so long, that being free, I had forgotten about it. I mainly use the site for cross referencing Scotland’s People results, so haven’t been bothering to log in. Peter ButeshireGenWeb Admin

    1. [BUT] David MAXWELL and Mary Ann KERR
    2. David Sharman
    3. Dear Listers I am trying to find the marriage of David MAXWELL and Mary Ann KERR c1839. It was likely on the Isle of Arran, Buteshire as their first born Margaret was baptised at Kilmory, Isle of Arran 9 August 1840. I am also trying to find the baptisms of their further children - John c1845, Mary Ann c1848, David c1850, Jane c1852 and Eliza c1854. The census gives their birth places as being Saltcoats, Dreghorn and Irvine depending on which census you look at. Only Alexander 10 October 1856 and Sarah 24 September 1861 appear on Scotlands People following the start of registration. I have checked the OPRs as well as the Scotlands People website and could not find any of the above. Likely the family were Free Church or United Presbyterian Church members which I'm told will not be recorded on the OPRs and are not yet on ScotlandsPeople. David MAXWELL gives Ireland as his birth place on the 1841 census but the Isle of Arran, Buteshire on the 1851 and Irvine, Ayrshire on the 1861 census. The family then emigrated to New Zealand in 1864. Mary Ann KERR gives her birth place as Kilmorie c1817. Possibly she is the daughter of Alexander KERR and Marry CURRIE baptised 23 February 1817, Kilmory Bute seeing as David and Mary Ann named one of their sons Alexander. I would be delighted if anyone can help me find this missing marriage and/or the children's baptisms. Kind Regards Sue Sharman (Tauranga, New Zealand)

    3. I no longer carry out research as I no longer have a seat in Edinburgh. All church of Scotland records are on Scotlandspeople. The Lesser churches eg UP church records and Free Churches I think are held by the archive centre at the Hawick hub in the Borders of Scotland. I am not sure how much is online but Hawick will be able to give you advice.

    1. [BUT] Admin update 3
    2. Peter D Cook
    3. Update ... Digest Posts now appear to be working for this list, however several earlier August posts, having appeared briefly, have now disappeared from the archives !? I have regained access to the Admin pages, and have adjusted the new default settings so that future spam should not get through to the list - fortunately this list had none while the incorrect settings were in place. There are still on-going problems with subscribers from some ISPs being unable to post to the lists - if you are with one of the affected ISPs, it is best to report this fact direct to RootsWeb via https://support.rootsweb.com/s/contactsupport Advice from the List-Owners mailing list includes the following points … 1 For dealing with spam from either rootsweb.com or rootsweb.net on any of your lists, simply discard it - DO NOT mark it as spam, nor carry out any other action. 2 For long term subscribers, please note that since this latest Mailman upgrade, <Listname>[email protected] no longer works to post to the lists - apparently the message will simply disappear into the void. I.E. for this list, use [email protected] - this change obviously applies to all lists. Peter ButshireGenWeb Admin > On 13 Aug 2016, ButeshireGenWeb Admin wrote: > > 1.

His father, Archibald (Jr) was born in Goran, Lanark Country, Scotland in as one of 10 children. His father, Archibald (Sr), was born in 1823, and died inthe US in 1910, having arrived in New York about 1870. He was an only child and married Agnes Robertson in 1849. One of the Archies was an analytical chemist. Archie Sr's father, James, was born in 1870 , married Margaret Bland in 1816, and died in 1866 at Bute on Rothesey. His Father was William, who was born about 1760. I have fairly good records from Archibald Jr on, but would appreciate any further info concerning ancestors."

    3. As of the last few minutes, the problem righted itself! None of the people who replied to my enquiry had experienced it, but I spoke to Scotlands People on the telephone and found that some computers were known to be affected - even ones in the same office as others that were not! Hopefully all is well now.

The screen that now comes up contains familiar words, but the formatting has gone haywire.
