I only have mothers name and date of birth there is no image (scots people) the 1911 census has her with her father and siblings but has her (grandmother) as mary ann and not mary but the year of birth is correct. mum does not know anything about her mum except she was married to george wallace and that she died 1938 in hospital i think she may have died in the workhouuse/hospital on inverkip rd. im beginning to think the mary ann is not her and that i have not actually found her on any census. She had older siblings (mother sarah wallace) -when will wee have access to the next census?
I will have to continue with this thread on geneology chat-thanks

Hi Fiona,

What information have you from the 1911 census?

Have you got your Mothers birth certificate from Scotlands people?

That is indeed correct - regarding Scotland

Only Scotlands People has the Scottish 1911 census..and Scottish BMD's

Ancestry has Irish BMD's for later years

The Irish 1901 and 1911 censuses are for the URL

moody blue- have just joined ancestry on trial but it looks like you cant get anything from scotland or ireland after 1901 is this correct?

The census was from Ancestry

thankyou mariecelest I have been researching on scotlands people
brumiejan -she was married to george wallace but i cant find the marriage on there.
moodyblue-that looks like them and it matches some of the 1911 census but on her death cert her mother was mary. Is this from scots beginning to see that the names differ alot (i think) I dont know how to do this without spending alot of money. I dont seem to be able to find marriages etc im guessing its my search it ok to always put in all districts .
Thanks for your help

Fiona, though I can't advise re. Irish/Scottish records myself, I am sure people will wish to know if she married, and if so, where and to whom? And whether you have seen the record of this.

Fiona - have you looked on Scotland's People?


Fiona Report 24 Jan 2013 20:52

I am trying to find correct parents (and siblings etc) of my grandmother Mary Maguire born 1897 ?lanarkshire ?ireland. A death cert which seems to be most accurate has peter maguire as father (born ireland) which lead me to a census 1911 which has her mother mary maguire deceased but i cant read her mothers maiden name (on the death cert) Actually getting in a bit of a muddle and have ended up with several census which i now think incorrect. (i started off searching mcguire until i got hte death certificate
Any help would be greatly appreciated
