I am trying to find out the maiden name of Margaret Barrons mother, Margaret on the census show that she was born in scotland, her parents are John Barron and Ann. I have just had a look at scotlandpeople, but do not really understand to use it and this appears so far to be the only person on my tree that was born in scotland. Margaret was born approx 1864, does anyone know how I can proceed.? Thanks Liz
