When unable to find someone on a census..................try looking for them using only the forename and birth year

Always allow for mistranscription.......poor writing on originals.etc, etc

being new to this,who would i apply to for his marriage certificate,to try and find out who his father was

Kucinta

Kucinta Report 4 Jul 2013 15:11

His father was also Alexander Dunlap, Gunmaker.

The groom is recorded as Alexander Dunlap junior.

Her Father was Joseph Davis stay maker.

Witnesses were Thomas Dunlap, Ann Davis and Mary Ann Dunlap.

Bride and groom both give their address as Gilbert Street

I'll send you the marriage register image, which tells you what the marriage cert would (though basically it's the information I've just given here in addition to the info provided by Jax).


EDIT: I think the file is too large to send as an attachment to a pm, as it's failed twice.

:-(

If you're happy to pm me an email address, I'll send it there instead.

Hi Richard, I am also looking for info on my ancestors who i believe are alexander and harriet dunlap. I have inherited a ring and believe it may belong to matilda dunlap (daughter of alexander and harriet) who married Henry Hawthorn. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks
