    1. [SCOTLAND] Rosie family of Scotland

    3. Hi folks, A few days ago put a query on this list re the ROSIE family of Scotland. So far I have not had any replies. I am not really surprised as I have never seen any traffic on this list and sometimes wonder if I am on the right list. Since my posting the other day I have obtained the 1934 wedding certificate of Margaret Macleod (Rita) NICOLSON and George ROSIE. The wedding certificate reveals that George (parents George Rosie & Jane Geddes) was a chemist and Margaret was a nurse. One of the witnesses to the wedding was John Shaw of Asylum Square, Inverness. I imagine Shaw may have worked at the Inverness District Mental Asylum and perhaps the bride and groom also worked there. The asylum’s more correct name may have been Craig Dunain Hospital. I have found, on Scotlands People, death records of all the children of George & Margaret Rosie – except for John Macintosh Rosie. So perhaps he is still alive. I would welcome any suggestion or help from fellow family history researchers as to how I may be able to track down George Rosie (if still alive) or any of his nieces and nephews. Are the latest Scottish Electoral Rolls available for viewing? Or telephone directories? Thank you, Ian Kelly, Queensland, Australia.

    3. Have you tried the Census?, I think they are up to 1911. Scotland’s People works out expensive. I have Ancestry, also expensive, but you can pay monthly. You sometimes attract others who are researching same names. I am a Scot migrated here toVictoria 47 years ago, and at the moment, would love to be back there, so dashed hot. Anyway give Ancestry.com. A try Good luck Nicky Young On Fri, 1 Feb 2019 at 4:22 pm, Ian & Margaret Kelly <imkelly21@bigpond.com> wrote: > Hi folks, > > A few days ago put a query on this list re the ROSIE family of Scotland. > So far I have not had any replies.

    3. Hi Nicky, Thanks for your reply. My ancestors, and the ancestors of the Rosie family, were originally from Isle of Skye and were Nicolson/Nicholson. I have used the census a lot and found good information on it but the Rosie connection to the Nicholsons is after 1911 so no use there. I am not researching back on the Rosies before the marriage to my Nicholsons. I only want to contact some of the Rosie living descendants. I have obtained some BDM certificates from Scotlands People and found them quite useful and reasonable in price for the older certificates at about $3 in our money. The latest ones are very expensive though so won't be getting any of those. They don't give as much info as the Aussie certificates though. I have a sub to Ancestry which finishes this month and shall have to wait for another special before joining again. I have found a fair bit on Nicolsons and some Rosie stuff on Ancestry. The family trees on Ancestry are a bit of a waste of time as the people who submitted the tree rarely reply when I try to contact them. I have found a bit more Rosie info since my last Rootsweb posting so shall have to do an update. I might join a Scottish list that that is more local where Scotlands People tell me the Rosies were on BDM certificates (where the event was registered). I agree with you that it is very hot at the moment. I am thinking of emigrating to Scotland.

    3. Hi again, would like to say that I trained as a registered nurse at Peel hospital,Galashiels Scotland. We had a Barbara Rosie about a year in front of me and she was a great lass, we all called her Rosie and she came from Wick. She also had relatives inNewtown St Boswells as she took me there one New Years Day. We were both on night shift and she was my senior in the children’s ward. I have no idea what there names were though. Barbara would have been born abt 1938-39, as I was born 1940. Maybe you will get something for her.
