Younie Families:

Hello All,
Only recently found this site and have a tip for all Younie family searchers. Scotlandspeople in U.K. the official site for online searches now has all OPR records on view online and the Moray section has extensive records for Younie researchers. Tip is, instead of searching for an individual person do a general search with just the surname and area entered and leave year settings as standard. The resulting lists will then show up most of the family members you are searching for with the code index for the record at the side of the list, I've found this saves lots of time and effort. You will have used a few of your credits but in the long run will save you from wasted searches for similarly named persons. The registration period will also give large lists of Younies for B.M.D. and there are Younies spread outwith the Moray area you might pick up. Found one ancestor who had moved from Rafford, Moray to Lochmaben, Dumfries after the death of her husband, to be near one of her sons and his family. Hope this is useful information for you.
Duncan McDonald.
P.S. My wife Elizabeth Chapman is the descendant of Elizabeth Younie, Burgie Hill, Rafford, Morayshire, Scotland. The search still ongoing and results of searches forwarded on to Pat Younie in Canada, who is amongst your subscribers.
