Can't find any of my Scottish (Aberdeen) forbears - only in Yorkshire, which they left in the eighteen hundreds I think.

illi, you seem to have hit 'submit' 3 times! Please delete other posts.
You need to give some more specific names and dates, and say where you have got to.

Your post is not very informative.

Scottish censuses 1841-1911 are on line..........

BMD's can only be accessed through Scotland's people website, which is pay-to-view.......and the availability of those records is much more restricted than the equivalent for England/Wales


If you give a more precise idea of what you're looking for, you'll undoubtedly get help

AnnCardiff Report 19 Mar 2013 12:11

message from the poster - Illi - please don't send messages, anything you have to say you must put on here for all to see

My father, Alexander Calder Illingworth born Aberdeen 29.8.1900, one of seven children, only sister, Isobel (Isabelle?) died in 'flu epidemic early 1900's. Older brother, John, Chief Constable of Cumberland/Westmoreland (now Cumbria) police1940's (I think). Father, possibly John too, Aberdeen stone-mason labourer, died about 1915. All other brothers emigrated to Australia at different times. Mother Elizabeth Philip, also from Aberdeen.

Illi, what other info do you have and what exactly are you trying to find? If you have your father's Scottish birth cert, you will have both his parents' names and the date and place of their marriage.

Please tell us what you have and what you are looking for, otherwise we will spend time looking for what you already know.

Only one birth coming up on scotlandspeople for an Alexander C Illingworth in 1900 and that is not in Aberdeen - it is in Kincardineshire and possibly refers to the Alexander in this family, although the age is wrong - possible mistranscription. All the rest of the family were born Old or New Machar, Aberdeen, except for John snr who was born Kenmore Aberdeenshire:

Reggie, that is the same 1901 census that I posted.

Illi, can you tell us more about the Yorkshire connection? 1800s covers 100 years!
