Why did Family Search attach a christening record for Margaret Allanshaw McFarlane (L715-DVH)
Why did Family Search attach a christening record for Margaret Allanshaw McFarlane (L715-DVH) as the wife of Robert Young? What criteria did they use to attach that record? Old family groups give her name as Margaret McFarland. They give her birth "about 1813." It is possible that this is the record of the correct person, but Margaret McFarlane or McFarland is a very common name and more than one exists in records of Renfrewshire, Scotland which is the place that a family biography says she was born. We could be connected to the wrong "grandmother" and researching the wrong family line. Please let me know how these records are determined to be accurate.
