Emigration to US and Return

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


WeeBruce Report 24 Oct 2004 19:08

My GG grandfather and his wife and 3 young daughters emigrated to USA in late 1880s . My Great Grand mother was born there. They returned to Scotland in the mid 1890s . I have checked and the LDS site but can find no record of her birth. Is there anywhere else I could look. I assume she would have to be registered here but I am uncertain where she would be registered. She would have been about 4 years old so I suppose it wouldn't be the birth registry. Any help would be appreciated.
