Welcome to the boards Tony, I'm sure someone will help if you post some details.

Have you used the 'search' (top of page) to see if anyone else has people you are looking for in their tree?


Tony Report 6 Sep 2013 17:02

It would be difficult to tell whether any tree owner were closely related or not, unless they were obvious siblings or children of that person.

Have you sent these people messages?

Evidently James and Sarah were married prior to 1951 as they are together in Islington at that date on the electoral rolls. Can't see a marriage in England though?


Tony Report 7 Sep 2013 21:48

I'm pretty sure they got married in Scotland before they moved to England
Just like to thank every one who has taken the time to read and help me cheers

No marriage coming up on Scotlandspeople for James McLean to Sara(h) Connor / Conner between 1930 and 1955.

Where did your Grandparents die please? Were any of their children born in Scotland?
