Hi My start is Daniel or Donald Keir/ Charlotte Dick
I am missing two of their children, both born in Perth, Perthshire. William Dick Keir b 11/12/1822 and Robert Keir b 10/4/1827 I have been informed that he married an Ann Paton possibly ending up in Belfast, Victoria, Australia.
Any information greatly appreciated

So how did you work back to them?

You should start from the present ......................

Which of the two sons is reputed to have married Ann?

When is the last 'sighting' of both of them in Scotland?

Have you looked to see if anyone on genes also has any of your family in their tree?
If so, you can try to contact them to exchange information?

Hi Chris, when you say he may be Donald or Daniel is that because you don't know his first name for sure, or because he is referred to as either?

Does this marriage clarify?

The marriage for Donald and Charlotte is on scotlandspeople - no results for Daniel.
