Re: Togneri Family

A nice unusual name to search for - though beware of mis-spellings and mis-transcriptions. I popped Togneri in the front page search of Scotland's People, and came up with a couple of hundred Births and Marriages a clutch of deaths and lots of hits on the valuation rolls and census returns. Looking ...

Re: Stuck on John Dougal

Hi DC i think you may need to give us a little more information. where did you find the details of the children and their year/place of birth? Were they born in Lanark town or Lanarkshire?

Re: ANONYMOUS records?

Really curious are the marriages of
Unknown Unknown to Unknown Unknown .... in the 1990's :?:

Are they all cases where a newborn has been found dead, or would they also be of children who have s...
