I appreciate your help.

My usual avenues of search have drawn a blank.

I hope to go to Registar House in Edinburgh in a couple of weeks......perhaps more success there.

The Living Relatives board came about on the 28th April 2011 and all replies had to be by pm until the 22nd June 2011 when GR changed it so we could reply on the thread


Reggie Report 27 May 2013 22:26

In 2011 jax?

William and Maria were Married in 1935 in South Leith.

William was born in C1904 , going by his age on the marriage certificate, given as age 31.

Maria Agnes Leitch was age 25 at the time of the marriage.Birth C1910

Maria Agnes Leitch died in 1985, in Morningside Edinburgh.

Give me a bit more time on my search for the family.

Regards ,

Thanks Jax,

I didn't realise Reggie was the Policeman of the Boards and he does not know anything about the people looking for the information or why they would like it. If he is not willing to help people like most others on here are then he should not waste his time criticizing.

I am sure I will get a response!!!!

When Robert posted in 2011 you could not reply on the boards, only by private message Reggie

Maybe he recieved some pm's? maybe not?

Thanks Stephen,

I believe Maria's maiden name was Leach or Leitch.

I appreciate your help.

Hi Robert,

There are four G. Davidsons listed in the Edinburgh area.

Do you know the Maiden name of Maria ? As I have found Marriages for a number of people named William Davidson at around the time they might have married, Perhaps even her middle name........ if you know that......that would help me.

Given that info I may be able to trace a death and who Registered that, this will then give me a name and address of who the informant was.Perhaps they may still be living at the same address.

Hope I can help.

Best regards,

No replies....hardly surprising, in view of the paucity of info

'Still' suggests a previous post

One per topic is the GR rule

Find your other post.....amend the title to include 'still looking'.....then delete this.

Have you tried looking for them anywhere?

SP for example?


Robert Report 26 May 2013 17:51

Still looking for my Cousins, Ann, Peter and Gilbert Davidson thought to be living in Edinburgh.

Their Parents were William and Maria
William is thought to have been born around 1910 so Ann, Peter and Gilbert could be any age from 60 to 80
