The NEISH FAMILY of Affleck, Monikie
Parish, and other parts.
The webmaster wishes to advise readers that a large,
glass-encased, family tree / chart can be seen on the wall at the Research Centre of the Tay
Valley Family History Society. The document is on long term loan to
the society and is about 3 feet wide by 2 feet deep, and it is not possible to
copy it, other than manually. The letter / font size can be very small in
order to facilitate the inclusion of approximately 75 'primary' names, together
variously showing spouse, occupation and or title, address, death & burial
and other information. The earliest entry relates to 1654 and the latest
to 1911, the year the chart was printed (i.e. not hand-written).
Should you wish to see this chart you should contact TVFHS
in the first instance and make suitable prior arrangements to copy the contents by
hand - photography is not an option. Non-members will be charged an
attendance fee. Please do NOT ask for a copy to be
sent to you - sorry.
The following inscription is to be found
on the document.
Genealogical Chart of certain branches of the
prepared by G. W. Neish, Affleck, Monikie, in October 1911.
from Notes and Memoranda in the possession of his cousin, William
Neish of Laws and Omachie, Kingennie, Dundee, and given to G. W. Neish
by Miss Jane Wilson Neish after the death of said William Neish.
Verified and extended by independent research and enquiry.
In October 2011 the Webmaster was been presented with a copy of the
"family tree" relating to the Neish family. This contains over 100
individuals and dates back to the fifteenth century. The Webmaster is unable to
give added information other than available on this page or from the file that
has been presented to him. The following linked file is in GEDCOM format and, in
order to examine it, you will need a specialist Family History software
application installed on your computer. You can obtain FREE Family History
software (Personal Ancestral File - PAF) from the Mormon Church Website at https://www.familysearch.org/products
taking care to choose the correct OS version (Windows, Mac, etc). A search for
GEDCOM with Google (or other search engine) you will find lots of information.
(You may not be aware that a GEDCOM file is a TEXT file and content can be
viewed in a text or word processor, but such text will not provide the
formatting you need which is only available from such free or commercial Family
History applications which are widely available. The Mormon Church initiated the
GEDCOM protocol many years ago and, although other software producers have used
it, often adding their own 'bells & whistles', these extras may not
interchangeable with other software.
Any thoughts - contact the Webmaster.
