BAIRD

Extracted from the Parish Registers of Kilsyth, Stirlingshire, Scotland for years 1672 to 1721

To be later supplemented by IGI online (from Kilsyth Batch numbers M & C114831 to 9 and Kirkintilloch Batch numbers M & C 114981 to 9)

This tree is provided to family historians without prejudice. I have constructed most of my family trees using the data I have available, and in a few cases it is estimated as the best fit from available choices. In this tree, several of the links are yet to be proved, so any help that you can give to confirm any line would be appreciated by me and others searching in this family. More modern families also need your inputs, because as I can link modern families to each other, and thus it enables a focus on their common ancestry. The memories of one branch may not be complete, but yet may fill in gaps of another branch. Only by a concerted effort can we really define the true lineage. Help me to help you by sharing what you have. I have included the contributor's email addresses within the file. Ken STEWART < kjstew@iinet.net.au >

HYPERLINKS

You can move between generations by using the hyperlinks - upwards through the highlighted fathers and down through the highlighted spouses. Bold links move into another family file. Some files are more linked together than others.

ABBREVIATIONS USED

Other than the standard abbreviations and Chapman County codes I also use

(OPR-KS) to designate that I personally read the registers on microfilm. Notes added in italics were

made after the register data was assembled

(IGI reg) to designate source of IGI materials with "registers" source codes

(IGI) to show IGI materials with another source (not always reliable)

"c" before year date to show an estimated year

"cc" before year date to show I have used the spouse's date data as a rough guide
