    3. Hi Bonnie. This is a long shot but is there any chance you might have a Kearsley mentioned in the book? -----Original Message----- From: bonniejt <bonniejt@telus.net> Sent: Monday, February 17, 2020 3:47 PM To: scotland-rollcall@rootsweb.com Subject: [SCOTLAND-ROLLCALL] Re: List Have a book on Edinburough published in 1886,It has drawings of various buildings etc. Each chapter talks about the buildings and people..

    1. [SCOTLAND-ROLLCALL] KEARSLEY
    2. Hello all. I am researching the surname KEARSLEY. My 5th great grandfather Jonathan Kearsley (b. 1718) left Scotland about 1738 in the dark of night telling no one of his plans to go to America. He arrived in America and settled in Pennsylvania where he married Jane (maiden name unknown) and raised a large family. We have a genealogy of the family, written by Elmer White telling of the family since his arrival, but it mentions nothing before his arrival. Once he arrived in America he never spoke of his family again. Therefore we know nothing of his parents or siblings or place of birth and we are not certain of the spelling of Kearsley. A family Bible published in Edinburgh records only those family members since his emigration to America. I have tried to assemble trees using information from Scotland's People but have had no luck with this approach and church/parish records are few and far between. I keep hoping for a Kearsley family to come forward mirroring a gap in their genealogy that fits mine. Fortunately I have a Y-DNA sample from one of Jonathan's family members here in America but I haven't been able to yet match it with the Durham, Lancashire family I believe is related. but I am hopeful that is one of the most likely routes to take. Any other thoughts? Alexandra

I continue to search for the family of William Lieth (by 1841 census the Lieth has become Leith generally) who married Margaret Grant in Evelicks Dornoch parish Sutherlandshire 04 Apr 1794. The children found are Alexander Lieth born 04 Jul 1809 Evelicks Dornoch parish, John born 1810 Spinningdale, Sutherlandshire and William Lieth born Creich Dornoch parish 25 Oct 1812. Family story has it that they were in the Spinningdale/Rosehall area. Good wishes Hilary Allison -----Original Message----- From: Pat Connors <nymets11@pacbell.net> Sent: Monday, 2 September 2019 11:33 AM To: scotland-rollcall@rootsweb.com Subject: [SCOTLAND-ROLLCALL] List reminder A few months ago I took over the Scotland list because it was on the verge of being eliminated from the Rootsweb/Ancestry site due to non-use. After I sent that email, we had a short flurry of posts to the lists and then they stopped again. Now, we have not had any posts in over 2 months and we have almost 200 subscribers to the list. My opinion is that that everyone has found their ancestors and have no questions and need no help. If that is so, well that is great news and there really isn't any reason then to keep this list. However, if there are some on the list that have not found where in Scotland their ancestors originated, if there is no more list, where will you go to find help other than paying someone to do your research, something you could have done yourself for a much cheaper price or maybe even for free. Why did 200 people join this list? I did because I have Brownlee and Campbell families that emigrated to Ireland from Scotland. I am very new to Scottish research and was hoping when I took over this list that I would be able to find where in Scotland they were from. Recently, my dna test through both 23 and Me and Ancestry. Ancestry says my dna matches the dna from others living in Ireland and Britain and Ancestry agrees plus adds Glasgow in Scotland which I think might be where my Brownlee family was from. Again, this is a warning that the list will be dropped from Ancestry is not used. Two months ago I rescued it after they had dropped it due to non-use. If you have found all you need about your Scottish heritage, why not share how you found where in Scotland your ancestors were from. If, like me, you have not found where they are from, ask questions on the list and see if anyone can help direct your on where to look. Are there any Campbells on the list? If so, I would like to compare families. Same with the Brownlee family, any on the list that have them from Glasgow and/or Co. Down in Ireland? -- Pat Connors http://www.connorsgenealogy.com _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebpref Unsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/scotland-rollcall@rootsweb.com Privacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9 Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blog RootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebpref Unsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/scotland-rollcall@rootsweb.com Privacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9 Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blog RootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community

    3. Hello one and all Listers  Various members of the family have tried in vain to find where my ggg grandmother Beatrice( Beattie) Ketchen  nee Lambert is buried to no avail. She was born to Michael Lambert,a Miller and  Helen Scott in I796. I have her death certificate, for the 18 Jan 1864 at Temple, but like all Scottish certs priority is not given to where the burial took place, though it covers everything else in detail. I have searched the burial ground at Temple, but like most old cemeteries there are numerous gaps and missing  headstones. Her husband Andrew who died in  Aug 1880, was a  farm worker at Carrington then and was buried  there in a mass grave by  Robert Balfour Wardlaw Ramsay Esq, so money was short and they had  had a big family. Any clues to climb the brick  wall would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Janet in  New Zealand --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. https://www.avast.com/antivirus

    2. Hello, I have what should be an easy one for you all. I am doing a one-name study through the Guild in England and am looking for ANY and ALL information on any Kearsley you might come across. Variations of name will also be considered. My long term goal is to find the family of Jonathan Kearsley who left Scotland when a young man to live in America in the early 1700s. Because I don't know where in Scotland he originated I am looking at all Kearsley lines with the hope of finding likely families or someone who has a gap in their family tree that might fit. Please don't hesitate to contact me with information however likely or unlikely. I would also appreciate any hints you might for going forward. I have been working on this project for several years and have amassed an extensive database and would like to think I am getting closer. Alexandra kearsley@one-name.org
