Simply use your browsers's 'find in page' or 'search page' ability to search for names
or surnames that you might be interested in.
MOST of the records on this page at this time are prior to 1750.

This page contains a mish-mash of transcriptions that I have done.
If you would like to try transcribing some I couldn't quite read,
just let me know and I'll direct you to any. If you have more info or want more info please send email to me at Tammy *First few paragraphs are me writing stuff down as I try to get started, after that, it's just lists of names and transcriptions. I hope you find something useful :)

I thought starting at the beginning of the records would help build a snapshot of Liberton and might make it easier to learn more about the families and connect them etc.. families that I don't find connections to, will be placed, more side by side, with their own trees, instead of just in a tree formation. Already I have a little problem. I thought I would start with a family close to the beginning of my records that had a lot of people in it. So I picked a family that had children over a 25 year period. Then on a whim, I thought I would see if I could find David's parents: I searched in all my various areas, and sure enough there was a suggested set of parents in the igi Issues, well the wifes name is Janat Ferguson in the member submitted record. I searched all over and could not find any marriage or kids for a david mitchell and janet ferguson. So I think that who ever submitted this, has the wifes name incorrect, as it probably is Christian Ferguson, the on in our tree. Next issue with the member submitted record. If we go by the birth of David born to George and Marion Brown, he would be 16 at the time of his first childs birth. Not unheard of for sure. BUT, there is not a George or a Marion found as one of the children of Christian Ferguson and David Mitchell. Suspicious at best. Next issue. I found two other appropriate births 01/May/1600 MYTCHELL DAVID WILLIAM MYTCHELL/MARGARET RYCHESOUN FR15 - LEITH SOUTH EDINBURGH CITY CITY/MIDLOTHIAN 692/02 0010 0010 28/Apr/1601 MYTCHELL DAVID DAVID MYTCHELL/ FR107 M EDINBURGH EDINBURGH CITY CITY/MIDLOTHIAN 685/01 0010 0193 The first David transcription: William Mitchell & Margaret Rytherdson an infant baptized David.

No real marriage for a father to find either, so basically no info. Comments: William is the first born son's name. Then Adam, and Adam is repeated again. No Georges, no Margarets, no Marions. Then we have an un-named mother. There are too many variables at this level. ~~ THE FOLLOWING IS SIMPLY TRANSCRIPTIONS OF RECORDS WITH NO RHYME OR REASON ~~ Mitchell, William, son to David M., in Stanehouse, beside Libertoun, with Mungo Ross, baxter 01 Feb 1632 Bapt to Robert Mitchell and Elizbeth Craig LS named Adam.
