Hi Dawn Thank you again .I have every census and helen Brown is listed as born in Beath, Fife I promise, I will not bug you for a while . Thanks again for all your help. Donna


April Report 2 Aug 2005 01:37

Thanks for the lookup Dawn - it's been most helpful. I only had 5 out of the 9. Some of the Kerrs were on IGI & SP but not my direct ancestor William Kerr, so it's good to have a date for him. April


David Report 2 Aug 2005 05:48

Hi Dawn, could you please look up the children of David Sheriffs and Elizabeth Jamieson? They were married 11/10/1828 Inverkeillor Angus, 17/10/1828 St Vigeans Angus. Are these Banns? The LDS site only gives one child to Elizabeth, Helen, but shows the father as Robert Sheriffs. David has a half-brother Robert? The 1841 census has a David and Elizabeth Sheriffs of the right ages at St Vigeans with children David, Hellen and Mary. I was wondering if there are any more children. Kind regards, David


April Report 2 Aug 2005 07:02

Hi Dawn Could you help me with my Kerrs again? William Kerr married Elizabeth Rutherford and had Thomas, Margaret, William Jessie, Eleanor and Elizabeth 1839-1852, but I can't find any record of Thomas, William or Jessie (my GGGM). They were born in Swinton, Berwick. Also the children of Thomas Rutherford and Margaret Kerr in Berwick abt 1798-1817. And the children of John Kerr & Ann Nisbet around 1775 in Berwick. Your help is much appreciated, April

Thanks for the offer I'm trying to find the parents and birthplace of JESSIE MUIRHEAD McKIE born somewhere in scotland in 1911 Thanks for any help and your time


Cath. Report 2 Aug 2005 17:11

Hi Dawn, Can you possibly find any mention of the birth of Charles Graham c 1790 probably Edinburgh or the marriage of Peter Graham and Margaret Dalgleish c1780 again possibly Edinburgh (St. Cuthberts). Any help very gratefully received. Cath.


Kaye Report 2 Aug 2005 22:01

Hi Dawn Can you see if you can find a marriage for me that I'm stuck on? I have a William Levenie (also transcribed as Leveney, Leveny and Levny) c.24/08/1792 at Boyndie, Banff who married Jane Lovie also of Boyndie, Banff. I think their first child was Jane Levenie b.1815 at Whitehills, Boyndie, which is where I'm expecting them to have married. Their parent's were James Levenie and Elizabeth Adamson and John Lovie and Jane or Jean Watson. Any info on these would be extremely grateful. Thank you Kaye

Hi Dawn, Can you please try to find a John Nicol for me. He is beleived to have been born in Largs, Ayrshire. I know that his son was born in 1894 so I am assuming he was born about 1870. Many thanks Julie
