Looking For Elizabeth Graham Rankin

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Jenny Report 20 Mar 2013 18:36

Looking for information about my great-aunt, Elizabeth Graham Rankin, born in Camlachie, Glasgow, on July 9, 1876, to Robert Millar Rankin and Elizabeth Park Rankin. I have only found references for her in the 1881 and 1891 censuses, where she was still living with her parents.

If you think she stayed in Scotland then you need Scotlandspeople which is not a subscription site

You will need to buy credits for Scotlands people


GlitterBaby Report 20 Mar 2013 18:46

You might have that info but anyone trying to help does not which is the only reason I posted it
