Re: 1911 census help

Hi Wilma I noticed you posted about the Scotland's people survey recently. I filled the survey in as I do like the site and anything that helps improve it is worthwhile. I notice a few people on the FB page would like to see it go down the membership route. Originally I was against this idea but man...

Re: 1911 census help

Thanks for reminding me Wilma - It's a great site. It would be helpful if I knew where he was living at the time of WW1. He might not have been in the war at all. If anyone who has a newspaper subscription it might have Isabella's obituary which might mention him. I don't know which paper covered In...

Re: 1911 census help

Hi Andrew You are right - no info other than basic details. SP have been helpful and suggest contacting National archives at Kew. Quoting the ref DVR15 RHA. This seems to be the royal horse artillery- not sure a Clydebank boy would be in this regiment? No luck with the closest census matches. I migh...

Re: 1911 census help

Still having not much luck with James McFarlane's death or 1911 census return. I did find a James McFarlane in the Minor records on SP age 40 died in 1917. The ref is 134/AF32 does anyone know what this means and what information it would have if i download it?
Thanks,

Ailsa

Re: 1911 census help

Elwyn; He was born in Partick - I was lucky to find the family as they belonged to an associate church - the births are not on Scotland's people. In 1856 the father Dugald McFarlane took his own life by drowning in the river Clyde due to a dispute at work. The mother remarried (I think) a John Stoke...

Re: 1911 census help

Hi Elwyn, Yes I am aware if them - I'm steadily working my way through them and the Irish site has been a godsend - Ellen is my gt grandmother - there is a post on TS about her brother Dugald drowning in Bangor. The James I'm looking for was with him - I'm sure that's where my gt gt grandparents are...

Re: 1911 census help

Thanks Andrew - that was my next step. I really hope he didn't die in WW1. I've already had 3 brothers of another part of my family killed in WW1. Also James McFarlane 's nephew was killed in WW2. If his address hadn't been Renfrew on his mother's death cert and wife's death in Inverness - I probabl...

Re: 1911 census help

Hi Elwyn, Hope you are well - you've helped me out lots in the past - especially with pesky Irish records! I have looked at wills for James McFarlane - if I could pin down at least Isabella McFarlane in the 1911 census it would show whether she is widowed and then narrow down looking for James. On a...
