Re: Henry & Moses McNeil

My maternal grandfather dropped his surname in favour of his middle name. Birth name changed at wedding for middle name and he gave his parents surname as the same as his "new" one. yet his death certificate gave his original surname with a "known as" beside it and his parents had been restored to t...

Re: SPFL & TV

I'm sure crowd figures would go up . . In addition to Andy's point, the vast majority of Premiership clubs are only shown live when Celtic are in town. Rarely otherwise. I doubt if it's going to put anything on their gates. The smaller grounds - Inverness, Ross County, Hamilton, St Mirren - are alm...

Re: Playing Each Other 4 Times Running

Beith and Broxburn Athletic met five times in 1908-09 Scottish Cup. Jan 23rd, Jan 30th, feb 3rd, Feb 4th, Feb 5th. Hard to see either of them fitting in a game between any of those dates.

Beith then played St Mirren in next round on Feb 6th.

Re: LEVEL FIVE ATTENDANCES

Many thanks. Still don't know why more clubs don't do the same. It's hardly the most difficult task in the world for most.

Re: Henry & Moses McNeil

It's usually McNeil. Birth registrations only started in Scotland in 1855 - the year Moses was born - and it wasn't uncommon for spelling variations or errors to be given. Many people couldn't read or write so it would be left to the registrar to fill in the name for it to be witnessed with a X.

Re: Free weekend on Findmypast

I give up. I've run countless "test" searches using personal and family information I know to be absolutely 100% correct and nothing comes up before 1993 and even then there are huge gaps between then and now. Even the earlier stuff I thought was appearing turns out to be some other geezer. Thanks f...

Ah, that would explain not being able to view the RESULTS of searches but not why searches aren't producing results in the first place. I'll re-register under another email address in twenty minutes or so.

Re: Free weekend on Findmypast

I got an email about this yesterday Andy and tried it out this morning. I was shocked to find out that not only had I never been born, nor had my father (exact same name). Of course never having been born neither of us had ever married. Naturally, lack of birth means my father has never died and he ...

Re: Attendances per head of population

As can be seen from the above, Scottish football comes in very highly with positions in the four tiers of (in order of division) 4th, 4th, 1st and 2nd. The presence of Rangers was obviously the reason for the top spot but there were no real big names in the Championship or League Two and that didn't...

Re: Scottish League match stats

Has anyone ever made an approach to the SFL to ask for access to their records and, if so, what was their response? It took me over ten years to be given access to attendance figures. Then again, the SFL no longer exists. What records the SPFL have kept of theirs I don't know. Perhaps the SFA Museu...

Thanks very much for that. Coming from someone who doesn't usually hand out bouquets indiscriminately, I'll regard that as high praise indeed.

Re: 1928 Scottish Schoolboys

Probably because he was under 14 at the start of the 1927-28 season, his 14th birthday (and Malky MacDonald's) not being until October 1927. As 'Snuff' has pointed out, ALL schoolboy internationals were U-14 prior to WW2. The school-leaving age wasn't raised to 15 until (I think) 1947 or thereabouts.
