2. Re: Scottish Left-Handedness [1]
In response to Ella -- not certain about the SI population, but world-wide it appears that about 1 in 10 are left-handed. More boys than girls (having so said, I'm a female lefty !). Many hypotheses, including a genetic predisposition (the Kerr's, for example), but not enough solid anything to make a case. One in three US Presidents and one in four US astronauts have been left-handed. Perhaps someone knows how many have a SI heritage? In the same line of thought, Juanita College in Darby, PA offers
3. RE: Surname lookups please [1]
My ribs hurt from the laughing. I think I'll try that on a couple of other lists...but few people on them are looking for the meanings or origins of the names.

I took the test and found the same results...saw two fingers with both eyes, off to left and right with one or other eye closed. Does this mean we're related??

9. Currency Value [1]
Don't know about 1951, but in 1961 it took $2.80 to buy a pound in England. So that would be $131.60, I think. Math is my weak side.

I keep wishing one of these ancestors would come haunt me and fill in some details. I would especially like to meet the GGrandfather who had the 26 kids.

12. Irish records [1]
Since I haven't found any Irish or even S/I in my family tree, I've been remiss in learning anything from the helpful messages concerning research in North Ireland. Now I've been trying to help my sister in law. What she wants to know is: How does one find records on ancestors born ca. 179-1822? She knows about the destruction of the old official records but wonders if the Parish records are available, if she needs to know the parish and are these records available at the LDS FHC. Thanks, friends, Conni

17. Re: Parenting traits of the SI [1]
I think I see a connection here.

19. WHAT??? [1]
I can think of only one valued member who quit but he can be found on the all Scottish list. Not only are the members of this list super helpful but they've become good friends. And you'll never learn about the ancestors' history on another list of just names and dates. Topics come and go and we're enriched by each one...except maybe the Princess Di joke.

25. Re: Stab at a notion of who our ancestors were [1]
Linda, Have you been keeping something from me about Hugh Middleton? After I spent seventy four cents to mail a letter to Wales. What else do you have on Old Hugh? And if he was the ancestor of my Middleton family, he just would have love my G Grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Middleton. While BF did ok for himself, his siblings were true hillbillies...stills and in Appalachia.
