Hi Mistycat - is there a chance they could have gone back to Scotland?

You could check the Scottish 1911 on Scotland's People.


Mistycat Report 8 Apr 2013 20:22

Hi Mike, Thank you

Had seen 1891 re William...

I know all info on both sides of the family but you know, it never entered my head they may have gone to Scotland !!!!!!!

You need to credits to check the 1911 census on Scotlandspeople

Could do a free search to see if any results


Mistycat Report 8 Apr 2013 20:38

Thanks GlitterBaby

Will take a look now...

Doing a free search does give possible matches for William,John, and William but nothing for Caroline

No way of knowing at the moment if the 3 are together or even the right family

Yes also getting a hit for a possible Caroline

Done it....bought credits

It's them....along with another "missing" person

Thank you
