Re: corrected entry on birth cert

Thanks everyone for the information. Next stop is to view Kirk Sessions Minutes when I'm up in Edinburgh next.

re Schedule D. Does anyone know whether the original docs are held anywhere?

corrected entry on birth cert

I have an illegitimate birth for Lena Beatrice Annie Dewar. The date of birth was 22/12/1896 but it was only registered on 19/3/1897. The mother was Helen Jane Scott Dewar. No father. The RCE states "For Lena Beatrice Annie substitute Ann Marion Davidson. The above alteration is made with the writte...

Re: Accuracy of certificates

He married pre 1855 so no note of parents. I'm puzzled as to how the Poorhouse would have had his parents names. He entered the Poorhouse after the death of his wife. Was it customary to provide the Poorhouse with parents' names (when they would be deceased). I can imagine giving a next of kin, but ...

Accuracy of certificates

I have a death certificate from 1907 for Thomas BROWN. The deceased died in Dalkeith Poorhouse, the informant being the House Governor. The age given is consistent with the censuses (dob 1830 - 1835) but for the parents given (both deceased), the only OPR birth listed is for Ann BROWN, born 1847. Ce...

SP Centre

I see that booking a search place is now done only online and that you need your SP account to book a place.

Do you still use your SP Centre username at the Centre or is it now linked to your SP login details?

Multiple entries

I have an entry in the Innerleithen OPR where the whole family is shown on the same page in 1805 but the births and baptism dates are spread over a period from 1796 to 1805. Does this imply that they had recently moved to the area or simply that something had prompted them to have the births recorde...

Re: Why 2 birth certs

The first birth of the family is in the Traquair OPR in 1854. The one in question was the second birth. The 1861 census shows them as living in Innerleithen. It therefore looks like they lived in Traquair and at some point moved to Innerleithen - which ties in nicely with what Andrew says. Thanks ve...

Why 2 birth certs

I have someone who was born in Innerleithen and the birth is registered in Innerleithen on 15/1/1867. Then on 28/1/1857 there is an entry in Traquair Parish and in the "where and when registered column" it states "1857 January 15th at Innerleithen. January 28th Transcribed at Traquair". Does this me...
