This is where you’ll find some articles I’ve written that are about more general topics relating to my family history research, plus some transcripts of old, out of copyright documents.
So far the articles are:

Description of Hurlford, Ayrshire in 1875 (transcript of 1875 document)
Shewalton Colliery, Ayrshire, in the 1840s (transcript of 1842 document)
