Part 945ss - 1754 Baptism GGGG-Grandfather James Scott

23 May 2019

Good Day,

Today I have relocated, in my genealogy research, to South Leith, Scotland. And adding to my library, I have been able to pick up a copy of Sue Mowat's 1994 "The Port of Leith".

Using Scotlands People and Family Search, I have been able to get a copy of the 1754 Baptism Registration of GGGG-Grandfather James Scott.

And this Baptism Registration introduces me to my 5-times Great-Grandparents William Scott and Margaret Straiton.
