|Areas in Scotland where some of my ancestors married and lived|
I have created a list in the usual way, using Legacy 9. Search>Find>Detailed Search then criteria Marriage-Marriage Place-Contains-Scotland and Create List.
Creating these kinds of specific lists helps me to know more about records I may be missing.
This search gives me a list with 42 individuals.
I printed the list from my search and went through the couples, one by one. I am happily surprised that out of 21 marriages, I have 16 of their marriage record images in my Legacy database. Yeah! Now, I need only go back online and see if I can locate the other 5 missing marriage records.
The oldest of the marriage records is for my maternal 4th great grandparents, William Ewen and Ann Cooper who were married in Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, Scotland on 2 Dec 1773.

They are no longer missing. I went back to the Scotland’s People website and located ALL 5 of them and have them added to my Legacy database now. Those 5 images cost me $12.60 which is $2.52 each. I’d say that’s a great price for any document, wouldn’t you?
Was this a good exercise and good use of my time? I’d say so. Including writing this blog post this whole process has taken me about 2 hours.
How do you use the lists in Legacy or whatever genealogy program you use? Do you find them helpful?
