Faces of the First World War - Imperial War Museum

Hi, I came across a post on Rootschat tonight from a poster called Seoras outlining a project that the IWM are running to put online photographs they hold of individuals who served in WWI. The first 100 'faces' have gone up today and apparently more will be added between now and 2014. They were coll...

Re: Silver Badge Records - help please

Hi Carole, It seems that the Silver War Badge records are not part of the current free access to military records in honour of Remembrance Day. They can only be accessed with a paid subscription of 'Premium' membership or higher or (presumably) as part of the 14 day free trial. Just make sure if you...

Re: Rosslynnlee Hospital buriels

Hi, I can't give you specific information on local burial places near Rosslynlee, but If you have the certificate, does it give a usual residence or where were her family living at the time?

Re: No Cause of Death?

No Cause of Death?

Hi, I was at the ScotlandsPeople Centre in Edinburgh yesterday and came across a relation of my wife's who seems to have died on or in the Union Canal at Camelon near Falkirk. His name was James Corbet and he was 17 years old. What was unusual is that the section for cause of death is completely bla...

Re: BIGAMY !!!!!!

Hi, I vaguely remembered seeing this raised somewhere before and I think that it's a quirk of the indexing process. AndrewP offered the following answer in a previous post: http://www.talkingscot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=9308&hilit=service+returns I'm not sure why it is Maria listed multiple ti...

Re: West Lothian FHS

Hi Jean & Eric, Thank you both for the information. Jean , being able to find out who is in each lair is ideal, as my lot had quite common names and it's expensive trying to fill in the gaps. I agree about the number of children dying - in my own travels I have seen a number of stones in cemeteries ...

Re: West Lothian FHS

Hi Jean,

Has your CD arrived yet? I have a lot of folks around Uphall/Ecclesmachan at the time the CD covers and I'm curious to know the level of information it provides!

Best wishes

Re: British Empire Medal Winner mystery

Hi Jim, I'm not as far away as the others :D , but still not close enough to help first hand.
