- During the first week of August I was able to do a bit of Farquhar research
both in Peterhead and in the offices of the Aberdeen & NE Scotland FHS. I
want to express my appreciation to all the helpful staff, I would still be
in Aberdeen if it were not for those unrefundable tickets back to Chicago
and the job that pay's the bills for my wonderings.
In Peterhead, the registrar's office had by alphabetical order, listings of
all Farquhar's burried in the Old St. Peter's South Road Cemetary from 1753
to 1891. The listing contains the name, age, Street residing at time of
death, date of burrial and plot number. I would be happy to answer any
inquiries-if you have a connection you can write the Registrar's Office on
King Street in Peterhead for information on who else is burried in that plot
At the FHS offices in Aberdeen they have two books for submitted surname
index'es. They have 48 Farquhar's in the member index, I didn't cound the
non-member records. I made copies of the two that seem to have connections
to the states One from the Virginia/Pennsylvania area, the other from
Virginia/Washington, California. If anyone wants a quick check I will see if
you have a connection.
When I have cleaned up my records, I will submit copies of all of this
information to the Clan Farquharson-Geneologist.
