Arlene's General Notes

In order to get the best from my lists you are advised to read the following notes.

  1. The data on these webpages 'started life' as word documents, databases and spreadsheets, compiled on various generations of Apple Mac computers over many years.  It is MOST IMPORTANT to note that the accuracy of the information cannot be said to be 100% - and, as in all things in connection with Family History research one should ALWAYS 'check-it-out' with the original source document.

  2. The reader should also note that in a FEW of the lists some of the data has been 'modernised' - in other words, place and sometimes proper names have been spelt the way a reader is more likely to find the name nowadays.  For example, several place names may have had various spellings over the years and some have been 'standardised' to read as they are today.  In most of the lists, however, the original spelling has been retained - if you are researching one such list it can take quite a bit of time to find the name that MIGHT be there. No doubt some researchers may think this practice is wrong, but it has been adopted with the interests of newer researchers in mind - as I say above, check the source. Your Internet browser will have the facility to 'FIND ON THIS WEBPAGE' (Ctrl + F with I.E.) and you should use this to allow you to FIND a name or place - remember various spellings - best to search for just 2 or 3 letters of a name for variations - have a look at the entries for examples of just how varied the spellings are to what we would expect, particularly from the older documents.  Look for other possible entries (in Monikie -probable entries!) for names and addresses on THIS website using the Website Search Engine provided.

  3. The original sources of the information on my lists includes Old Parochial Records, Census Records and my own family research as otherwise stated, but other sources have been used and cross-linked in some cases.

  4. Please note that the records tabulated on these lists MUST NOT to be taken as factual proof of an entry in the original documents.  In the course of producing these list mistakes could have taken place in the transcription and preparation, in the reading of the original text (from microfilm), in preparation of the webpages by the webmaster.  The original writers - sometimes several writers of one volume, over the course of many years - have spellings of names and places in a different way than one might expect today.  Family Historians should be accustomed to such anomalies and make allowances for this - check the original!
  5. The order of the entries in the lists should be obvious and it is understood that some of the original records may be missing, there being gaps in the data. 
  6. Some of these lists can take a quite a while to download.

  7. If your Internet browser FONT settings are set at Larger or Smaller this may produce a list with the columns out of alignment - try resetting the font size, or 'Copy & Paste' the list, only, into another software application.  You should always used a fixed pitch font, such as COURIER NEW, in order to regain proper column spacing.

  8. Any list which shows entries marked 'TMS' is referenced in the book, 'The Monikie Story' which can be purchased from this website.  This gives an excellent insight of the MONIKIE parish over many years, from BC!
  9. Similarly, any lists showing codes (e.g. J05) are the numbers of the gravestones or memorials in the old part of Monikie Kirkyard, details of which can be inspected on this website.
  10. If you find any of these lists of interest you are recommended to 'Copy' the contents of the list and 'Paste' in to some other application - a text editor software should help.  Or you might decide to save the webpage in HTML coding (as the whole webpage) for later, offline inspection using your browser.

Should you require general guidance, in the first instance please contact the webmaster.
