Hi, I'm looking for anyone that knows or is related to any of the Mailer family still living in Perthshire, Scotland. I know my great Grandad lived in the area and was one of 13 children, My Great Uncle was the last station master at St Fillans. If anyone has any info or contact details I would be very grateful

The phone book would be worth looking at...................free on line, and in every main public library

To find links on GR......put names and birth info into 'search all trees'

How much research have you done?

Do you know the names of the 13 children.............and their years of birth?

ANYinfo you have will help us to help you...........

Thanks for the offer of help, all 13 children's names & most dates are in my tree (not sure if any of you guys can see it?) I've got a bit of information from my family & put what I can on here but seem to have hit a bit of a wall

Regards
Emma

Scottish BMD,s are on Scotlands People which isn't a subs site.

Scottish registration started in 1855' they do also hold parish records

No-one can see your tree unless you have direct contact with them, and allow access.

If you have a specific query.......post it, and see what transpires
