Researching John Logan and Isobel Booth, my ggg grandparents from Old Deer, Aberdeenshire, I downloaded the OPR page containing their 1832 marriage. Amazingly, the marriage immediately before theirs was for George Hay and Mary Taylor, and George Hay was my ggg grandfather.
John Logan and Isobel Booth had a daughter Mary, who married Alexander Fraser and had a son named William Fraser. George Hay and Mary Taylor had a son called George Hay, who had an illegitimate daughter with Helen Watt named Helen Hay. William Fraser married Helen Hay.
To add to the coincidence, Mary Logan died after just a few years of marriage and Alexander Fraser remarried. His second wife was called Margaret Booth. Was she related to his first wife’s mother? I have yet to find a link but have a sneaking suspicion there will be one.
This isn’t the first time I’ve downloaded something from ScotlandsPeople and found more than one record that has a place on my tree. Has anyone else had any useful ‘two or more on a page’ downloads?
