Title: Livingston(e) information from ScotlandsPeople
Posted by: David Wyse Livingstone
Date: 29 March 2007

Hello Everyone, 

I thought I would add this as a new thread. If you have been reading up on the thread "MacLeas in Argyll, 18th Century" http://www.clanmclea.co.uk/forum/show-message.asp?ID=2327 you saw my listing of Mclea's and some Livingstones in Argyll. I got this from just that information directly from what ScotlandsPeople website.

I have created an Excel Spreadsheet and hope to move it to a searchable Database on this site, if Niall permits, when I have the format all set up.

Thanks to the request for McLeas and Livingstones information I started to focus in on the spreadsheet again. Today I created a "search list" to help keep me from redoing the same searches and getting duplicate information.

Anyone who knows "ScotlandsPeople" know they charge 6.00 for 30 credits to do searches. Each page found from a search costs 1 credit to view, and if you want to get the full view (picture) of the pages they got the summary from it is 5 credits.

What I did to get the McLea information was I first went to the Search and entered the below information.

Surname: McLea (then MacLea)
Sex: BOTH
Date: 1 January 1554
Date: 31 December 1854
County/City: Choose ALL RECORDS
Parish: Choose ALL PARISHES

I then looked at the finding of page 1 (25 hits per page) and viewed it by the "printable view". I copied everything and pasted it into the excel Sheet which I formatted to show as I did in the above thread.

With the McLeas/MacLeas I could do it with just one 30 credit visit as it did not have 30 pages.

With the Livingston(e) it is going to be a bit more as there is 236 pages of ALL Livingston(e) from 1554 to 1854. It breaks down to 8 "30 credit" searches.

Like I said above today I created a "search list" to help keep me from redoing the same searches and getting duplicate information. I will include it in a Post to this because I have found some "facts" from the search list.

If anyone wants to volunteer their time and 6.00 for 30 credits to assist me in getting the Livingstone information in a consolidated spreadsheet I would appreciate it. I will put the instructions in the attached "reply" to this thread with some interesting information I discovered.

Thank You.
David
