Re: Abandoned women, late 19th century

[TS_welcome] A sad tale. I take it you have seen her death certificate. Was her home address on that a house, or a "poorhouse"? Who registered the death - a family member, a friend/neighbour, or a poorhouse attendant. If she was in the poorhouse, or in receipt of money from the parish, there could b...

Re: Angus McNaughton/Margaret Young Hutchison(Hutchinson)

The place to look for Scottish births, marriages and deaths is www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk - a pay-per view website where you can view or download these certi...

Re: Malinzina Bruce born 1802

I have no experience of the Irish records. Hopefully someone else can point you in the right direction. My good friend Google took me to web pages that gave me the information above.

All the best,

Re: Malinzina Bruce born 1802

According to Cracroft's Peerage online, the 10th Earl of Meath, John Brabazon, married Lady Melosina Adelaide Meade on 31 December 1801. If you are not seeking exact spelling (bear in mind the spoken word was often more important than the written word; and the accents of the people around could easi...

Re: Robert ROSS - Austin, Texas maybe

Hi Wilma, A search on the SP deaths for surname ROSS, and mother's maiden surname ENGLISH produces five results (four people; one indexed twice - with and without a middle name). That search only works from 1974 onwards. The results (1974, 1977, 2010 and 2014) when subtracting their ages calculate b...

Re: corrected entry on birth cert

I have never heard of anyone seeing the original Schedule D (or similar) document. If the document still exists, it would be worth asking the ScotlandsPeople Centre if they hold these. Failing that, the National Records of Scotland (previously the National Archives of Scotland) could hold these docu...

Re: corrected entry on birth cert

Hi Douglas, The only additional information that I can offer is the Schedule D was used where the registered name was changed following baptism under another name. See the following article in the "TalkingScot Library". http://www.talkingscot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=11350 What that doesn't an...
