Odds and Ends

Ann Cushman provides a marvelous resource of odds and ends and tidbits and stuff from the unusual to the amusing. In between, you might find a clue or a new source of information to aid your research.


Frances Heales tells me that an English city has a cathedral:

Lowland Scots were mainly Protestant and
Highland Scots mainly Catholic

She has seen pner and pnella after a name in records. The letter N used to be a letter U….puer is boy in Latin and puella is girl.

She also answered my questions on English Parish records and Bishop’s transcripts (Church of England). They contain baptisms or christenings, marriages and burials.

I searched in more detail as there were also non-conformist (not Church of England) records which may have more information.
