The Scotlands People website has original baptism registers to view. I have been lucky in this situation that the Minister/Ministers have given some indication as to which of the fathers (that are probably cousins ) is represented in their record, They being of a certain residence or farm. I've just realised my problem. I just assume that it will only be wrong for one generation and it wouldn't be too bad. Hovever the female line is then totally wrong from there backwards - oops ! But then again, the female lines need a lot of luck to trace from around this date backwards, I've not been able to find any clues at all, even with the help of the use of their maiden name in married life.

Not all births/baptisms/marriages/deaths were recorded in the OPRs so it could be that neither of the Robert Alexander entries belong to your Robert Alexander.
