Using Family Search [and census] the folllowing children of James Rose and Isabella Faulder are listed:

John Rose, born 20 September 1822
Archibald Young Rose, born 30 January 1824
Robert Faulder Rose, born 24 November 1825
William Rose, born 7 August 1827
Isabella Rose, born 18 March 1829
James Rose, born 28 September 1830
[Jane D Rose, born c1832]
James Rose, born 17 August 1833
Georgina McKenzie Rose, born 13 June 1835
Jemima Rose, born 26 January 1838

Therefore John Rose was born a month early or Isabella was pregnant when she married.

I just watched it and quite enjoyed the programme, though I found it frustrating how they virtually ignored some people on the tree, apparently rushing straight over them in order to investigate those who magically turn out to be the interesting individuals! I realise this is to keep us interested and because of time constraints, but maybe devoting a sentence ot two to those skipped over wouldn't be asking too much?

I enjoyed that one too. I like Annie Lennox and at least she did not cry. I was suprised how quickly they found Jessie Fraser, perhaps they could look for William James Fraser as well.

I enjoyed it, although it made some fairly major leaps of faith ( assumptions).

Jessie/Janet for one - did we see any evidence to substantiate this?

Good though.

Oooh I wish

That I could have such thorough research on my lot who also have various surnames as middle names - gets so confusing as there seems to be a dearth of first names! So I've umpteen Alexanders and same of Marys all with different clans as middle names.

I agree with whoever said they found Scotlands People difficult - I've certainly found it so And still can't find my 'real' grandfather's whereabouts although I know his name.

I'm a Shona - which is a Gaelic form of Janet. Jess and Jessie are both widely used as a diminutive for Janet in Scotland. I've seen the same person using the names Janet, Jean, Jane, Jess and Jessie in official records. As a comparison, would we question Betsy or Betty as a pet form of Elizabeth if the birth place and date tallied?

I presume that they looked at her marriage certificate to confirm she was the right person, but didn't bother showing it in the programme.

On my Scottish side, my only Jessie was born and baptised Jessie. However, she sppears on one census as Janet. I know it is her because she's with the right husband and children. Her death is reported by her husband - who calls her Jean! Again, definitely the right person, the one born and baptised Jessie.

Corriemulzie is a blob on the road about three miles from Tomintoul - once a hamlet, now deserted and not the same location as Tomintoul croft/farm.

I suppose they DID identify the correct place?

At the end of the program the guy says Tomintoul refers to a farm in Braemar.

Tomintoul Farm.
