David, According to the Index, she was born in Torphichen. Why would you think that Jessie might be Isabella ? Is this a weird diminutive I'm not aware of ? Cath Cath I'm not suggesting that Isabella is Jessie, just highlighting an interesting coincidence in terms of surname, place, and age. That w...

"Placenta praevia" doesn't always result in the death of the child. A normal vaginal birth is possible when the condition is partial. If it's total, then a Caesarean is possible. The full CoD is shown as "Placenta praevia anaemia". What does the 1912 birth record show as the place of birth? There is...

The guidance given to registrars was not to include the child/children in the 1855 record in the listing of the children; but it's very obvious from a number of 1855 records that I and others have seen that some registrars did include the subject(s) of the 1855 birth register record.

For the moment, and some time well into the future, with very few exceptions, mainly in the 1850s, the mother's maiden name only appears in the death index from 1974 onwards. Limiting the search to Glasgow City only, and born 1929 +/- 1 year, there's one very tempting death index entry, - 1959 MCCAN...

Re: Church Records.

:roll: Hi, Although there is no death records,,would the church have recorded a burial on record in a graveyard even if there was no headstone,? Hi Kay Basically, yes, of course they would have.

Re: witnesses on OPR birth certificates

I've just got a copy of a birth entry from 1794 (thanks, Andrew, for your suggestion as to which) and it contains the names of two witnesses (as does each entry on the page). Sorry if this is a very basic question but this is the first time I've seen this on a certificate :why did the births have t...
