Hi Anne, Yes you were very, very busy there, I was watching but you are very quick at searching with the discs.. Thank you so much for all the information on the two families, this is the correct one I went away off at one point, so many Dye families in Dundee but I am sure this one is correct. Many Thanks Betty

Hello again Anne, many thanks for your information regarding my SCOTT family in Barony, Glasgow. Sorry to be a pest but could you check James SCOTT head 53 years place of birth again. In 1871 census he lists it as Linlithgow, Bo'ness, West Lothian, however on this 1881 census it is Glasgow Lanark. I am hoping that this is a mistake as my research has been in the Bo'ness area. I apologise taking up so much of your time. Many thanks Helen.

Hi Helen That's the only place of birth the census has. It's possible that he put his place of birth down different from 1871 on the census forms when he filled them out at the time. I have found this to be the case when researching my own family. Anne

Hi Anne its me again wondering if you can do an 1881 census lookup on the other side of my family tree. I have a John Ferguson who married an Elizabeth Sullivan/Sulivan on the 26/8/1868. I know they had a son Thomas Ferguson born on 5/1/1880 in the St Marys Dundee I am just trying to see how many other children they had by the 1881 census. Many Thanks Betty

Hi Anne, If possible could you please look up John Tait, 1868, Edinburgh Parish and Rose Ann Tracey, 1869. John Taits parents were Robert Tait 1840 and Elizabeth Craik 1845 Perth Rose's parents were James Tracey, 1840 and Isabella Hawkins, 1858. Looking for any information on the families at 1881. Kind regards Hannah
