Daryl Bruce King b. 1947 Hillhead Glasgow

Hi,
I’d like to find out the birth details of Daryl Bruce King, my 1st cousin who born in Hillhead, Glasgow.
I can’t access the cert online, so was hoping someone who’s going the Mitchell would kindly look it up for me,
As I’m unable to myself due to severe spinal problems.
Thanks,

Looking for Barbara Millar & Robert Lindsay marriage

Hi, I'm trying to find a marriage for a Barbara Millar & Robert Lindsay, but without any success. I've searched on SP, and although I have found a record on familysearch which says they married in Edinburgh in 1822 I can't seem to find anything to confirm it. Also it mentioned her birth in 1782 in P...

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

Hi, I had a look at the poor law index last night online, and it matches my Robert living at 7 Quay Lane. Paisley when he died in 1859. His wife Agnes (2nd wife ?) registered the death cert. Now I have to find out where I can view the poor law record for him if the museum are closed. His death cert ...

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

Hi, Thanks for your help Nelmit & Wilma. I've had a look at the death on SP for the Robert Bratton which you mentioned and it didn't mention 2 wives, just an Agnes who signed the death cert. It could be him, as he was alive in 1858 when his son married, although his occupation on the 1859 cert was a...

Re: David Gillespie - When Did He Move & What Was His Occupation ?

Hi Wilma, Yes, David died a month before the 1861 census unfortunately. I think I may have found him in the poor registers for Callander in 1860, its dated 22 Nov and mentions him as a widower. Hid address at 70 Cowane St. may have been a lodging house or possibly a boarding house I'm not sure. I'd ...

Hi, I'm trying to find my 3 x great grandfather David Gillespie's address from 1856 in Cross Keys, Doune, Stirlingshire (when his wife died) till 1861 in Cowane St, Stirling. I think he was a miller, or agricultural labourer/farmer by trade. I'd like to know when he moved, if possible. Are there any...
