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. :-)
