Emma you are a gem. I have been searching high and low for him. Any chance of the cert? to many many tanks Dean


Dean Report 22 May 2010 00:19

Thanks emma. I Must have searched about 30 or 40 John smiths and as they were showpeople they are hard to track down. Funny thing is that date was on my next shortlist. Now i will be able to find his grave as he does not lie with his wife. Thanks again :-) Dean

It's ok. Glad to help someone out. I've decided i've hit so many brick walls with my family tree that i'm going to give it a break for a couple of weeks to see if a set of fresh eyes can pick anything out that I've been missing for the past year or so.



Brad Report 22 May 2010 01:05

Hi Emma,
I am sure you have created a massive workload with you offering help and I am sure everyone appreciates it immensely.
I am in Ballarat, Victoria and chasing ancestors Carrington Billings (unusual Christian name) and Eunice Millets born somewhere around 1800 give or take 10 years. Carrington was born in Manchester England I believe but my ancestors migrated to Australia in 1948 (Geelong). Their son William was born in 1934. They appear to have sailed from Scotland so I presume they relocated from their birth place of England. Eunice may have been born in Scotland I am not sure.
If you have the time would certainly appreciate any help. Been working on this tree for 20 years plus, and I just keep hitting a brick wall

Many thanks
Brad Billings

Hi Emma,

Thanks for having a look for James King Death.



John Report 22 May 2010 09:29

Hello Emma I wonder if I could ask you to look up a birth for me please.
The name is Cathrine McIntyre born abt 1836 according to her marriage cert. Her fathers name was Edward. According to the 1861 census Cathrine was born in Scotland do not know what part. She was married to David Holland and living in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1861.


Rosey Report 22 May 2010 15:36

Thanks Emma. I am looking for the birth of Ann or Agnes McPherson according to English 1851 census born in Greenock as you cannot find her She must have been born another part of Scotland. Could you look other areas in Scotland. Her father was a Peter McPherson born Scotland area unknown. Thanks again.


FRANK06 Report 22 May 2010 19:01

Rosey, this could be Peter's marriage from IGI

Port Glasgow is only a few miles from Greenock......

Marriage: 30 NOV 1822 Port Glasgow, Renfrew, Scotland

Marriage: 30 NOV 1822 Port Glasgow, Renfrew, Scotland

May be worth checking out the Scottish 1841 census to see if you can find them there.


Jean Report 22 May 2010 22:45

Hi Emma,
I wonder if you are still offering look ups could you find a marriage for Mary Moore d.o.b.1892 to William Muir sorry no details at all on him just his name on Mary's death certificate in 1952.
Mary's parents are Duncan Moore and Mary Crawford.
She is last on the 1901 census living in John Carrick Street, Springburn.
At the time of her death she is living at Craig Road, Glasgow.
Many thanks for your time

Hi Emma
I would be so grateful for any info on the marriage of Margaret Ann Bruce to James Sinclair in Burray, Orkney. She had an illegitimate child in 1914 in Burray so marriage would be after that time. Any info on this lady would be appreciated.


IanPJS Report 24 May 2010 07:47

Hi Emma,
Francis Johnstone (born Lochmaben c1782) married Janet Allison (born c1786) at Lochmaben 23/10/1807. I believe his father was John Johnstone and his wife could be Helen Young or Margaret Creighton, or possibly both if he was twice married. I would be grateful if you could find the answer for me.
Thanks Ian.


Jean Report 24 May 2010 09:43

Hello Emma,
I wonder if you are still helping with look ups could you possibly find the birth for the Elizabeth Heaney you found for me on my McLuskey questions.
Her parents are Edward and Beatrice nee McGoldrick, her d.o.b. from the marriage cert you found was 1907,
Thanks once again for all your help,

I can't seem to find anything on John or his wife.




Emma Report 25 May 2010 19:07


I've had a look on Scotlands People and unfortunately there's nothing for a birth for Eunice Millets anywhere in Scotland.

Sorry - Hope you eventually find what you're looking for



Emma Report 25 May 2010 19:15


I can't seem to find a birth for a Catherine McIntyre anywhere in Scotland between 1800-1854 with a father Edward - I even tried for other children surname McIntyre with a father Edward and nothing comes back.
