you could probably get all the information you are looking for from Scotland's People ........... which is NOT a subscription site.

It is pay-per-view, and as such, it is unfair to ask others to pay to look at the information for you.

I believe it is possible to search on Scotland's People for free ........ this would enable you to find out if your ancestors are on there, and then to buy as many credits as you require.


It is also possible to see bmds from 1855 on, with all the information, and to download them. That means that you can look for the births of the various children and see all details, or for marriages.

If you buy the birth certificate (from Scotlandspeople) for the child that is your direct ancestor it will give you the date and place of the parents marriage. You can then check the marriage certificate for the correct parent s of Archibald.
