Northumberland Lookup Requests / Re: Margaret Percy

Andrew Percy and Agnes Pyles are my gt gt grandparents. The Margaret Pyles lodging with them on the 1881 census is Margaret Martin Pyles, b 1851, Agnes's sister. I haven't got her birth cert but all links point to her being born in Newcastle. There were other members of the family who lived in Newcastle so probably on a visit at the time of birth.

It's been a few years since this post was started so you probably know all this by now  ;D

Perthshire / Trinity College Glenalmond

Evening all. Does anyone have any knowledge of Trinity College Glenalmond, between 1900 and 1920? We're trying to solve the back story of Elizabeth Hyslop, and her mother, also Elizabeth Hyslop, who was my mother-in-law's mother and grandmother, who, according to family stories, had some connection to the college around that time. Pretty sure she didn't study there but may have been employed there. Anybody know if there are any staff records anywhere?

Well, our company has an office in Castle Douglas and I got a call last night to go see them and sort their problems out first thing this morning. Of course, having not contacted anyone regarding where section N was, I decided to rush the castle Douglas job and take a long lunch break wandering around St Michaels graveyard. I somehow thought graves may have been sorted in chronological order. They're not. An hour and a half I spent wandering around in there before deciding to give up and visit another day when I was properly prepared. Just about to head out the gates and I met who I assume was one of the church elders or officers. He didn't know where section N was but he took me inside the church to check their paperwork. Unfortunately, they only have books that go up to about 1880, and my first burial is 1895 but he did suggest the later burials were in the bottom half of the graveyard, so off I headed again for another 20 minutes of wandering and squinting at well, weathered sandstone. Decided to call it a day, as my parking ticket was just about to run out without finding what I had gone there looking for but I did find the grave of my 5th great uncle and his wife, and the grave of my gt gt grandfathers brother, his wife and 2 infant (9 and 23 months) children all of whom I didn't know were in there. A semi-successful visit I'd reckon. Time to go e-mail the council and Ewart library to see if they know where section N is.

Hi ,

Do you have any names and dates ? , have Lanarkshire burials/obituaries that might give further information.

Many names and many dates. About 3 generations worth.

Thanks Monica, Good old Mitchell again.

Lanarkshire / Kinning Park burials

I should probably know this, as I'm from this area, but where would the people of Kinning Park have been buried? There isn't a cemetery there and the only ones I could consider close enough are Craigton or the Southern Necropolis, and even they are both a bit far away.

Brilliant stuff all. Not sure where the bottom gate is Pete but I can see where Craigs road is so not in that direction Id guess. Ill contact the council cemetery people and ask if they can narrow it down for me.

Thank you
