Re: Emigration - Ancestry or FMP look up please

You are so right Tracey. I've left Isabella Millar & her mother Barbara Black for a good year now and, lo & behold, the internet has caught up and I was able to find Isabella and I've got a request to make to Wirral Archives about Barbara (death of a Barbara B Millar, age 82, in 1931........just so ...

Re: Emigration - Ancestry or FMP look up please

Hi Carol, Happy to help. I found the initial burial information on http://ancestry24.com/ I then backed that up on http://www.ancestors.co.za by finding the document that I could order but the info listed (ie first name, surname, maiden name and YOB) gave me pretty much all I needed to know, it conf...

Re: Emigration - found all that's need at present

Thanks Carol, Sorry, should've said that I've already spent a mild fortune eliminating all Isabella and Bella Millar variations, likewise with Barbara. #-o Both were single when they sailed.

Re: Emigration - Ancestry or FMP look up please

Hi Tracey, No, I don't :( ](*,) Also haven't a clue whether they did come back in or not. Certainly by 1909 Isabella is 'apparently' married with children, according to her father's poor relief app, that's why they are listed as being unable to assist. Barbara at that point would appear to still be ...

Emigration - Ancestry or FMP look up please

Hello everyone, long time since I've been on here, hope you are all well. I really don't know where to go next with this one. An ancestor of mine, Isabella Wright Millar, born 1871, Glasgow (She also went by the name Bella) was a bible woman, who, according to her father's poor relief application in...

Good evening, It's been a while since I've had the time to look into my tree and I'm tying up some loose ends. I'm still no further forward with this family, in fact I feel I've taken a couple of steps back. Today I got the death certficate for Ann (Chalmers) Wardrop, who died at Bellsquarry (same a...

Just spoken to my Dad, he's under the impression the Quadrangle will be ok as it's a listed building, seemingly it's the newer bit of the school, then again the authorities may have changed the rules for listed buildings.

It was only a couple of months ago that I went up to Dalmuir & Clydebank on a nostalgia trip with my Dad and we were standing outside the church as his Granny had lived in Roberts Street for about 20 years. We also wandered round by Jellicoe Street. Those properties tell a story, it's very sad. As f...
