Thanks Everyone!

Spades - This is the message I got from Trystan:

There is a limit of one or two posts per 24 hour period  on some of the boards. So just try again after that amount of time has passed.

This is done to prevent a board from being swamped by requests.

Good evening, I just now realized that we are only allowed one post per 24 hrs.

Are you sure about this?


Sorry - should have been more precise. I believe you are only allowed to post on "new topic" every 24 hrs. At least that's the way it seems to me? Maybe a moderator can clarify?

Good evening, I just now realized that we are only allowed one post per 24 hrs. So, I'm going to make the best of it with a 3 part latin conundrum on my end :) I'd love to have a translation of each of them if it's not too much trouble please.

The first is a baptism on 26 Mar 1626 for Elspott Dasone - parents are Johne Dasone and Beatrix Duncane; however, I don't see them in the image at all  ???

The second is another baptism, supposedly on the 17th of Dec, 1626. I believe I can make out the word Andersone but not much else. Parents are supposedly William Andersone and Margaret Caddell.

The third, yet another baptism, is the most difficult for me to make out anything in? The child is John Mitchell and parents are James Mitchell and Christane Thomeson - date is 30 Mar 1647.

You are awesome!

Hadn't started on the kids yet but on checking for Christian Jamieson it shows the Parish as

Carriden, West Lothian, Scotland

That must be it!!!

You're brilliant the two of you.

Only town I can find that's similar is Corran? Any other parishes come to mind?

Hello everyone, need some help :)

I have a marriage record for MATHEW JAMISON / JONET MILER - date is supposed to be 01/02/1700 Place is Kilsyth.

I think I can make out the Mathew Jamison but not much else. Can anyone transcribe their entry for me?
