The format of
dates throughout the World differs from country to country. If you
use the INTERNATIONAL DATE STANDARD you should not encounter problems - if
you do NOT, your research and data are going to be confusing. Please DO
NOT EVER use simple numeric like 12/08/14.
The Webmaster has an interest in Family History in particular, and local history in general. Being a a member of Tay Valley Family History Society it is recommended that all persons with 'roots' in the Tay Valley area become members - wonderful value! This page will take you to some of the pages on this site with a Family History content, much more than the webmaster's interests. Some FAMILY HISTORY forms part of the area's LOCAL HISTORY available on this site too - click the LOCAL INTEREST button at the foot of the page. by FAR the best way to look for information on this site is to use the site search engine.
Involved in research, the webmaster has collated much data over the years, and wishes to share some of that data with other genuine researchers. The information on this site is under the headings (but use the search engine too) -
Some of my STIRLING pages give various general information and use the SEARCH ENGINE BELOW for 'stirling' for more, elsewhere on this site.
Mainly, my research is based on the ANGUS (or Forfarshire), East of Scotland "branch", but recently added entries too, brings my list to over 2500 persons, including other parts of Scotland. You can download a copy of the file, a list of STIRLINGS and SKIRLINGS, etc. The file contains records varying from very sparse, right up to considerable detail - please read carefully about its content before you decide if it may of use to YOU. On the list the entries do not record persons of the STIRLING surname from other areas of Scotland (but this is being worked on - watch this space!), unless they married or died in ANGUS, but the SKIRLING SURNAME entries are for all Scotland, although most appear in this area. The STIRLINGS of KINCARDINESHIRE were added in July 2000.
Over 300 records of deceased persons, called STIRLING and STERLING, in the OHIO state of U.S.A.
Always adding more index data from the 1841 Census for many enumeration districts in Angus, including some for Dundee. Read more HERE.
A list of Statutory Death Records in Angus, in 1855 is being collated. Some data available now.
Statutory Death Records for Monikie, Angus and Errol, Perthshire registration districts for the years 1855 to 1875, 1881 and 1891.
There are connections between the Earls of Strathmore and the SKIRLING family. Read here about GLAMIS CASTLE and the lineage of the Earls.
Look here for some photographs of Kinnettles Village, Kirk and Kirkyard - of the webmaster's family history interest (not in Monikie Parish - but nearby in Angus) - see some STIRLING stones.
The Flax Trade - in Dundee, Scotland, but applies equally elsewhere.

The NEISH family of Affleck, and elsewhere near Monikie.
The STURROCK family of Guildy, Monikie.
The forgotten Disaster. A volcanic eruption of LAKI volcano in Iceland in 1783 was indirectly responsible for a huge death toll throughout the World. The BBC have a webpage on the subject, but a Google search (Laki, Iceland, 1783) will likely bring more. Were any of your ancestors affected in 1783/1784?
In early days the BOWER family of Kincaldrum House in Inverarity parish were indirectly connected by marriage (at least) to the Stirling family. (Cette page est aussi en Français.)
A collection of pages on this website, mostly by (or in the style of) a Canadian contributor. Various family history information is there, relevant to Angus (formerly Forfarshire) in Scotland and more lists yet to be made available so keep looking back to 'Arlene's Lists' - for 1000's of names!
Much of the history of this area can be read in 'The Monikie Story' by the late, Rev. W. D. Chisholm. There is a large index of names and addresses mentioned in this book - a link can be found from the book webpage, or use the site search engine below. You may wish to check if your family tree is represented somewhere on this site by entering the name in the Search Engine.
Look, too, at the fore-runner to 'The Monikie Story', the Statistical Accounts of Scotland for the Parish of Monikie, for the years 1791/99 and 1842 and for several other local parishes.

(This webmaster has some experience in using this website and would suggest that users are very careful in dealing with what is on offer - read VERY CAREFULLY the notes on the website, particularly as the fee charged does NOT allow return 'free' visits to the same index pages already viewed on a previous visit (as is the case at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk) - 'session cookies' only. You are advised that the images that are provided are NOT in a 'normal' graphics format but a (free of charge) software viewer is required . The images DO NOT have filenames NOR do they have any heading or other identification!! If you mix up you need to start from scratch and progress more carefully!! I advise that you TAKE YOUR TIME and search only ONE YEAR QUARTER at a time and SAVE (and best print) the images with a filename that YOU CREATE and that YOU can follow. Since I last used the website the method of searching has been improved.
Save your files something in the style b1848ond1.djvu to b1848ond7.djvu
It is worth noting that the results do NOT give dates - only a quarter when the event was registered, with the registration district and reference. Further (high?) costs are involved to get the registration details and these may be incorrect.
