St Andrews Presbyterian BMD Williamstown update

Greetings;

This is a short post on a glitch that has shown up in   St Andrews Presbyterian 1779-1804  BMD Williamstown update in regards to

  The Hugh McKay/Ray/McRae discrepancy.

 1 Hugh McKay/Ray/McRae discrepancy. In original hand written microfilm records this entry can easily be interpreted as McKay or McRay. In the typed up Volume 1, 1779-1814, I have in my files this Hugh is listed as a McRAE. There was a transcription error between the hand written entries & the typed up volume 1 of St Andrews 1779-1814.  Thanks to John Maher of Alberta with his correction of July 2012, this Surname entry should be MCKAY, in regards to this baptisms entry.  Awf 7/12

B8 1796  p.101 in baptisms & index p.298 or 303
ISABEL  MCKAY
       ISABEL MCRAE, DAUGHTER OF HUGH MCKAY/McRAE1 OF CHARLOTTENBURG      AND OF CHRISTIAN  MCKAY/McRAE HIS WIFE, WAS BAPTISED ON THE 28TH FEBRUARY 1796.
