This Clouston Family tree has been updated with the most up-to-date information. All the Scottish Clouston names, for the period 1538 to 1854 have, wherever possible, been checked on the Scotlands People web pages for Births, Marriages and Deaths. The information on the Scottish Peoples web site is possibly the most accurate information for people born in Scotland, the information is transcribed from Old Parish Records. While the majority of information is accurate the original records were hand written and at time difficult to decipher, so yes, there will be some errors. If you have information on a good source of information, please let me know. Many thanks. The Family Tree is currently undergoing a major update and is continually being updated. Census information for Orkney families is gradually been added for the period between 1821 and 1911. Some of the Sources used are: Scotlands People - www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk - one of the largest online resources of original information on Scottish Ancestry. Family Search web site - familysearch.org - a very useful site to check informtion. Ancestry.co.uk - there are many family trees on this site to compare information, however do not rely on this site as the information is not always accurate. Orkney Genealoy web site - www.cursiter.com - this site contains lots of information of Births and marriges. Orkney Family History Society - www.orkneyfhs.co.uk - this is another excellent site with accurate infornation, which I have used extensively. I also us the My Heritage web site - www.myheritage.com - which has proved invaluable for research into this family tree. One problem I have come up against is dates of birth. In old Parish records the recorded date may be the date of christening/baptism or the actual birth date, so comparing data from various sources can be very difficult. In some cases births were never registered, so no accurate information is available.
