It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi Valerie my family connection and name searches span Co Antrim and Co Down I am looking at the surname Finney, Acheson and Baillie so far I have had some success by currently I have had a brick wall moment looking for my grandmother's great great great Grandfathers birth and marriage. I have children's marriages for this gentleman but am struggling to find his birth and marriage. A cousin of my f late father's took up researching and their was a question mark around Lindsay FINNEYs wife possibly being Janet Ferguson. I feel Ferguson is right as pattern of naming children is traditional Presbyterian carrying surnames on in male and female children. My grandmother was named after her great grand mother Margaret Anne Acheson Finney. My FINNEYs hail from either Co Antrim or Co Down dunadry Templepatrick and Grange in Co Antrim and Downpatrick and Killyleagh. Seem to be most prevelent areas and a town land called BALLYgraigy or maybe craigy is mentioned for Lindsay I wonder what you know of the Area and do record exist for mid to late 1700s for births and marriages

You added a James Craig born Belfast c. 1840 with a daughter Ellen. I wonder if you know, did your James have a brother Samuel Craig (daughter Margaret Ann)?

Hello Valerie, My name is Lewis Bailie and I have been searching the family for years on and off. I have hit a dead-end at my GGG grand patents John Bailie/ Bailey and Mary Tompkins. What I can tell they were in the maybe Down Patrick area. I know their son John and wife MaryCarr had what I can find 7 children in Dublin. From my late aunt, I understand they may have been descendants of Baillie of Dochfour in Scotland. There was an indiscretion with 3 brothers doing harm to a clergy person. One went to Ireland in I believe the mid-1300's starting Ringdufferin and Inishargy. Do you have anything in your tree making any connection? Thank you.

Hi Valerie,

As you have offered me some real help with my ancestral page and research, I thought you might be interested in a research project I had completed by a Dr. Tyrone Bowes. It is about the Hawthorne migration from Scotland to Ireland, Co. Down during the plantation of 1610. The report is truly interesting and informative. Now all I have to do is fill in the ancestral information from 1610 to 1800's; only a couple of hundred years! Anyway, thanks for your help in the past, hope you can open and like the file, if no let me know and we can try another way? Cheers Manny P.s. the file is attached to my Wikitree page.

Re: Samuel M'skimin

His great-granddaughter, Elizabeth M'crum, re-issued his 'History of Carrickfergus'. She included a bio in which she speculates that SM was an only child (due to lack of death records of siblings). But I wonder, I've seen a news item about an Andrew M'skimin born in Ballyclare within 10 years of him...

Hello ,Valerie I just learned we are 18th cousins through John Glen ,while matching profiles of my GEDCOM..Quite interesting.
Hi Valerie:

Thank you for taking the time to help me out on this line in my tree. You helped to solve a riddle that had my mother’s family stumped for years. Her brother always thought that there was a brother to my grandfather Squires named Hyder. Now I see that Isabella Cockburn married a man whose surname was Hyder! One riddle solved. There must be other Cockburn siblings because of the big gap in birth years – that will be the next job! Thanks for all the additional information!
