This website doesn’t have names, but it does have a wealth of information on the population of cities, towns parishes. I put in the name Goosey which is the parish my grandmother was born in and it came up with 34 entries for this tiny parish so you can see it has plenty to interest family historians.

Handloom Weavers of Perth Scotland

Have you got weavers from Perth? If so then this is an essential site for you. The author developed this site as a project connected with her Postgraduate Certificate in Genealogical Studies at the University of Strathclyde. Let’s hope more participants of this course go public with the fruits of their labours. An example of how good and informative a website can be.
