Re: Hogmanay Scandal Anyone?

P.S. When he died in 1907, he was living at 228 Main Street, Winthrop. The informant (listed as “Unknown”) gave his birthplace as Renfrew, Scotland and his parents names also “Unknown.” How do you get an unknown informant to fill out the details??? :lol: :lol: :lol: Great to get confirmation Sarah.

Re: Hogmanay Scandal Anyone?

Re: Robert Britton & Elizabeth Porter - What Happened to Them?

I think Agnes could be Robert's 2nd wife too. There is such a gap in age between the children in 1841. There is a death registered in Paisley of a Robert Brattan age 68 in 1859. I am not sure if you looked at the entry if you would see if he had been married twice though. I don't think they listed s...

Re: Christina Campbell born 1821 Crieff ??

Re: Marriage of foreign national couple in Scotland

When searching for one of my friend's Lithuanian family it proved really quite difficult as each certificate had a totally different spelling of their names as obviously it was just written by the Registrar how it sounded to them :( That was my thought. Do you know you can search with only first na...
