Hi. Can anyone with access to Scottish records help I'm trying to find info on Alexander Cameron Abel b.1897 and Annie Stephen Robb b.1899 when they married and if either had been married before they are from Aberdeen. Thanks Julie

Do you have the marriage registration (available on Scotlandspeople if they married in Scotland)? That will name their parents including mothers' maiden surnames.

Maybe?
