According to many tourists and immigrants in Norway, Norwegians, and Scandinavians in general, are cold and rude. We all have different ways of conducting ourselves depending on where we are from. What is rude in one country may be perceived as polite in another. So after 50 years in Norway sorry if i come across being rude I don't mean too.
Have been researching NNs=Nisbet Nesbit Nesbitt Nisbett etc the last years. Main goal has been to correct all the errors and document the lines, and help with the brick walls. Have spent hours in Edinburgh doing NN research in the archives and have documentation that is not found online.

Note: my own ancestors will add more sources Unfortunately because of a fire and loads of water damage it will take awhile to recover my documentation.
Why people do not find a record for their ancestor in Scotland or connect to wrong person as it is the only one that might fit. Only 99 of the 850 Scottish parishes that returned information on baptisms, marriages and burials for the 1801 census possessed regular registers – the remainder either kept no register at all, or made only sporadic entries That means 751 parishes are missing so the chance of finding your relation in these records around 1801 is only a little more than 11%
Once you get into the 18th century you'll find that parish records are scarce, and there is a temptation (which you must resist) to assume that a name you find that fits your idea of what the family tree looks like
I have abstracts of many of the Old Parish records and Statutory records of Scotland done in person when I have rented there for numerous months .
