  • Anglo-Saxon searching Scottish roots.

    First ever post to ES - - -so Hi everyone. I have made some progress with my family tree and hope to find something in common with other members whether it be surnames or places etc. Here are a few clues : Watt of Montrose; Nicoll of Brechin; Phillips of Strathmartine; Dick of Markinch. I can trace them all to about 1800. Just now very interested in one of Dundee's forgotten pubs at Strathmartine Road / Symers Street / Cox Street, about 3 miles north of the Tay.
    Roll-up Scotland, I'm all ears,

    Then select 'Index (Browse All Lists)'

    Scroll down and select 'International'

    There you again have to scroll down to the line one past that starting with 'Poland. e.g the next line second last entry is 'Scotland' click that name

    Now scroll past Clans' to 'Perthshire', click and select 'Subscribe to Perthshire-L' (NOTICE the -L)

      We do have a lot of information on the site about Dundee which you can get to at

      We also have a complete Gazetteer of Scotland as well and I'd certainly recommend using our site search engine either in our Toolbar or on the web site to find what other information we may have.

        Geoff, I do not see a pub in the area, but is the attached the correct area?

        Alastair has given you some great suggestions, which are on the es site.
