I began a new work project to chart the OPR – Old Parochial Registers from East Lothian, Scotland. All-things-being-equal this project could, may, lead me to the connection of my Robertson 4-times great-grandparents and their ancestors, my 5-times and 6-times great-grandparents. I have started with the Parishes of Innerwick and Oldhamstocks.
My challenge and goal is to plot all possible Robertson candidates, whether father, mother, or child who have documented baptism/christening registrations in the OPRs.
Today I charted 69, or 4% of the recorded baptisms. I am currently concentrating on the Parish Churches of Innerwick and Oldhamstocks. I think I have a job ahead of me.
To date I have been able to trace my 4-times great-grandparents John and Christian (née Dudgeon) to the Parish of Oldhamstocks.
We also have the current results of our Robertson Y-DNA - R-U106 (R1b1a2a1a1a), as tested through Family Tree DNA. (Thanks G.) Hopefully there are possible Robertsons out there somewhere on this small planet that may be able to identify their ancestors and/or match to our current Y-DNA results.
