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

If you give some names and dates and places of birth someone may be able to help.

Scottish BMDs are available on the Scotlandspeople website (pay to view)

Where and when have you found them in Yorkshire?
