Hi Arti76

This past week I have begun tracing the McGilchrist line.

From Agnes Arnot(nee McGilchrist) death cert I found out her parents were John McGilchrist -farmer- and Margaret Millar in Baldernock. I was able to get their 1794 marriage OPR from SP.

I also found on SP an OPR Birth for a John McGilchrist in 1750 in Baldernock which would have made him 43 when he married but not unusual. But have been unable to find a birth for Margaret Millar or death certs for them both.

On the family search site I found 4 children listed for them including my Agnes but no John, so at this point not sure where the John and Ann McGilchrist family fits in.

Quite a coincidence that in 1881 a McGilchrist family is living at Arnothill Gardens, Falkirk. :-)

Many thanks
