Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / No Idea what two words are?
« on: Sunday 18 October 20 22:49 BST (UK)  »
Here's the transcription - but I can't for the life of me figure out the two words in underline:

John Graham, Weaver in the Parish of Dunning and Agnes Hepburn youngest daughter of Robert Hepburn Weaver, _____ ____, in this Parish Gave in their names for Proclamation in order to Marriage. They were proclaimed before the congregation the two following Sabbaths and Married on the 20th day of January at Perth by the Rev. Mr. Finlay

My thanks to you both!.

Good evening,

Please and thanks :)

The Common Room / Baptism vs Christening
« on: Friday 07 August 20 22:43 BST (UK)  »
Good day all,

Please excuse my ignorance but I'd like some help on Christening vs Baptisms. Depending upon which website I choose to use, events are labeled as one or the other. For example:

Ancestry/Find My Past: Robert Meiklejohn was baptized on 29 May 1825
Family Search: Robert Meiklejohn was Christened on 29 May 1825

I've googled and relive i understand the difference but it seems that sites / others use the terms interchangeably?

I use the following naming convention from my media files

Surname_Forename_Middle Initials-event year-event type

and now have files that are identical but one is a baptism (BAP) and the other a christening (CHR)?

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Alexander Marr's Place of Baptism?

Good day to you all!

I'm trying to decipher the place of baptism for Alexander Marr who was baptised on May 2 1720. Father's name is Thomas. The place looks like Anugstown, Angriston, or something like that but I can't find it on the web?

Thank you Kay and Sandy.

I downloaded the pdf from Sandy's link - there are a few Robert Meiklejohn's but more interestingly there's an Agnes Meiklejohn (nee Mouat). Robert's wife's name is Agnes Mowat - very much like the right stone. The only issue is that the Roberts in the pdf all died too early - I know from the Wills and Testaments section of the SP website that he died 29 Jan 1845. The pdf indicates Agnes passed in 1811 and there's a corresponding Robert in 1811????

I then subscribed to Stonehouse Heritage to get a look at their inscriptions but they didn't have any Meiklejohn's in their inscription database? Could there be two St. Ninian's kirkyards?

Thank you all so much!

Stirlingshire / St. Ninian's Churchyard / Kirkyard Gravestones
« on: Wednesday 27 May 20 04:53 BST (UK)  »
Good evening, at least it is here :)

Does anyone know of an online repository of the gravestones within this kirkyard and transcriptions? Or is there a reference book cataloging the stones and inscriptions? I know from Robert Meiklejohn's will that he was buried at the St. Ninians churchyard - I presume his wife Agnes was also buried there, and so I'm looking to see if there's an image online or a transcription.
