Re: 1921 Census

My daughter had noticed this hidden away in the guides section of SP just this morning: We will release indexed images of the 1921 Scottish Census on scotlandspeople.gov.uk and in the ScotlandsPeople Centre in the latter half of 2022. We’ll keep you updated on progress via our digital channels. [/b]...

Re: Royal Artillery

Our Libraries are all open now but with restricted hours.
They are still giving us remote Ancestry access though - long may it continue!
Currently it's only for Full members.

Re: Royal Artillery

Hi Ailsa, I had a look on Ancestry [it's free through many libraries just now] There is a family tree with your Andrew D Hardie mentioned - but it isn't public. Other than that I've found his death and remarriage details : marriage: Edith E Ellis or Taylor in July 1952 Southampton death: Oct - Dec 1...

UnKnown male 1900 - bo...

Re: Frasers of Fort William

I had another wee look for the McGowan /Kilpatrick marriage. I found this one: KILPATRICK ANIE MCGOWN JOHN W 1905 625/3 41 Bellshill which could fit the bill? You've got to widen the search sometimes for names like Annie - I used An* , as she could really be an Ann or Anne. Mc & Mac names - I often ...

Re: Frasers of Fort William

[TS_welcome] We all started out as rank newbies so you are in good company ;) I found the best way to get the bare framework for my trees was to focus on the marriage certificates. That will give you not only the names, address and occupation plus approx. birth year of the couple in question, but bo...

Re: NEWS : Mothers' Names Now Included On Marriage Registers In England & Wales

Just a shame about the electronic bit I know, but it's the way things are going now. When I registered my Father's death in November, it was all done over the phone, and it saddened me that I couldn't actually sign anything. One advantage is that they shouldn't be scratching their heads over the ha...
