Re: GRO Index

Hi Sarah - no worries - at the minute I'm more interested in the index than the certificates. If they created pdfs or images at the same cost as for Scotland I could be persuaded to get some certificates. It is good however, to be able to check the mother's name - I have many instances where complet...

GRO Index

I seem to be very slow on picking up genealogy updates & have only just found out that England now have some of their indexes online. The birth indexes include mother's maiden name for the years prior to 1911, not previously available. Years ago GRO was going to digitise all their indexes and certif...

Re: Scotlands People

Thanks Andrew - I'll check out the issues being addressed and see if this gets a mention. I thought that was the case - but so easy to forget.

Re: Cannot find a death

Andrew

Thank you so much - I did all sorts of searches with no success. All my thanks - she had to be there somewhere - thought I had checked them all - obviously not!

Trish

I was going to download the census if I couldn't get further with the death - many thanks also for that information.

Cannot find a death

I've been searching for a death (with the additional issues of the SP searches) but understanding how the married women searches work, I still can't find this death. Would appreciate if anyone could try & find what I am probably missing. I am looking for the death of Ann Mathers. I have these census...

Re: Scotlands People

Thanks for the replies Alan, Andrew & John - I found a slightly different work around John - I search by 1 name, find the likely suspects & then check for those exact details (place/year) using first name only. Your method is obviously quicker - I didn't even realise you could sort the results. If a...

Re: Scotlands People

Seems I am completely confused with the death searches for married women. I've tried searching for name xxxx other name yyyy and I get all of EITHER name rather than records that only contain BOTH names. Is this what other people are finding? Did it work like this in the old system?

Re: TalkingScot Admin - Russell

So sad to hear of Russell's passing. He was always so ready and willing to help. Hope he's now solved all those brick walls. Blessings.
