Which area of Scotland would you like the accent to be from?

Her husband had Dumfries connections.

The Common Room / Re: What has happened to Findmypast?
« on: Friday 13 July 18 09:01 BST (UK)  »
Well as yet no response from FindMyPast, not even to acknowledge my email (via contact us) and say it would be looked into.  Pretty poor customer service too.

The customer service team at FindMyPast claim they've been looking into this for months.  I first reported this issue to them in April.

I tried everything they suggested to clear the cache,  then a password reset, but none of that worked.

I could still signin on the laptop, but I was wanting to use my ipad.

Sounds great Rosie!  She probably wondered that herself.

I'm preparing a presentation for a family reunion.

The opening slide/title is "What's a nice girl from Eastcheap doing in a draughty Scottish castle"

I'd be grateful for any suggestions to make it sound as if it was being said by someone from Scotland.

Many thanks indeed.

The Common Room / Re: Wikitree - is it OK to link to living people or not?

Awesome.

The living people that I could see are now private.  Presumably someone else objected.

Try this for frustration Xinia.  They do have a user name, but sometimes it doesn't display correctly (so I needn't edit it)

They have an ENORMOUS locked tree.  They appear to have no desire to find our connection.

Scotland / Visiting ScotlandsPeople Centre in Edinburgh? And NRS.
« on: Monday 25 June 18 09:59 BST (UK)  »
Woo hoo!  I'm going to Scotland in August for a family reunion!!

From the ScotlandsPeople website it looks like I can just use my current registration to book a place.  Is it really 25p per page to save to my account, or have I misunderstood?

There's also a few records on the NRS index that I'd like to see, but I'm wondering about getting a Reader's ticket.  Would there be any problem with having a foreign address?

Scotland / Re: How is the surname Angely pronounced please?
« on: Saturday 23 June 18 02:00 BST (UK)  »
Thanks rosinish. 

I can see on ScotlandsPeople that there are records for what could be similar surnames, but it depends on how the surname is pronounced.
