Another 44 names added to Coldingham WW1 servicemen/women list

Tonight I added more names to this list, drawing on names recorded in the Reston United Free Church Roll of Honour. A few of these names are probably existing soldiers already in the list, but most aren’t, and are new. The Coldingham WW1 list now has 330 names, and will continue to be updated as new information is found.

Pulling out list of RHP plans for Coldingham parish from NRS catalogue

I’ve been using the National Archives of Scotland (previously Scottish Record Office) online catalogues for many years. Now it’s part of the National Records of Scotland, and I’ve just been trying some more catalogue searches, and found something new for me. The NRS has lots of plans for places in Scotland in the past, including maps, sketch plans of places, and architectural plans. And these seem to be largely tagged by place.

Searching for the place tag for Coldingham parish finds 207 of these RHP maps and plans, from the 18th to the 20th centuries. Check out the list to see if any might concern your ancestors, depending on when and where they lived. Contact the NRS for further information on accessing these records, including arranging photocopies or digital copies.
