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...

Re: 1911 census help

Hi Ailsa,

Does the minor record give his service number? If so, what is it?

All the best,

Re: 1911 census help

Hi Ailsa, 134/AF32 is from the Armed Forces section of the minor records. These are normally pages of about 20 names, listing their regiment, service number, rank, age at death, date of death, cause of death, place of death, country of birth. However, the cause of death is normally very basic, such ...

Re: 1911 census help

Thanks Andrew - that was my next step. I really hope he didn't die in WW1. Hi Ailsa, There is no sign of him on the CWGC website. The nearest one was the one given above. So it is unlikely that he died in WW1. From the information you give above, he was last seen in 1903 in Clydebank (his marriage)...

Re: 1911 census help

Hi Ailsa, Assuming this is the 37 year old in the Service Returns that Elwyn found, here he is on the CWGC site. https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/104715/macfarlane,-james/ Unfortunately this one is son of John and Mary Macfarlane of Glasgow, while you are looking for the son of James and ...

Re: John Walker Cunningham

A map of the area (revised in 1910) can be seen via the following link. https://maps.nls.uk/view/75650937 Craighead is south-west of the centre of the map. Craighead Junction can be seen, and beside the road bridge there, you will see "S.B.". I take that to be a signal box, amongst many S.P. (presum...
