|About Nairnshire Area Family Trees
I actually should name the website "LookingForJanet.com" In my quest for information regarding
the origins of my 4th great, Janet MacIntosh who married James Calder in 1807 Nairnshire, I
have downloaded many items from the GROS, purchased numerous MI booklets, visited the area,
As a result of this research, there are many "extras" going to waste.
As I am at a dead end with some time on my hands........have decided to incorporate information
from the MI booklets, extras from scotlandpeople, etc. into family trees. My last ditch effort
to find the connection that continues to elude me.
With regard to burials - I have recently added a link to the website for Highland Memorial
Inscriptions, an excellent site and extremely helpful. I initially asked Mandi for photos but
thought it best to list her website and a reference to the burial rather than waste her time
for the details (when you request info, she not only emails the photo but also takes the time
to transcribe the MI from the photo).
Going forward, I am checking Mandi's index. If I list a burial without specific info (a death
registration or a transcription from a MI booklet), I am looking at her index. Although I may
list a burial at a specific location, this does not necessarily mean that the individual is
buried there. Please visit Mandi's site to verify the information that I have listed (and
kindly take the time to let me know if I need to make a correction).
At the time that I discovered her site, I was already through about 4,000 souls and I encourage
folks to check her website as she has quite a collection!!
NOTE: With regard to Mac / Mack surnames - Although I realize that there is a distinction
between Mac and Mack, I have no idea if the interpretation belongs to the person recording the
information or the person who provided the information. For the time being, all are Mc except
for Mackie as I never know what to do with that one :-)
