Roy Report 3 Dec 2019 00:13

Hi guys back in June 2018 I put up a request for any info on David White , born 13/6/1845 in Forfarshire and died March 1916. His wife was Annie Catenach Bettie born 1849 and died 1901. They were married in Montrose on 25/10/1871.
If anyone can help me follo these two it would be great. I believe they had tho children
James Selby White, born June 1873 in Islington, and died 9/5/1929 in felixstowe.
Agnes ( Nicol ) Selby White, born 25/5/1877 in Islington and died 30/6/1941 in Kent.
So that is the end of that line so I really need to go back a generation.
Going back one generation is were I am having problems because there appears to be two David Whites born 1786 and both marrying Jean Allan, or have I got something really wrong.

Have you got their marriage certificate

Scottish records have much more info with parents names etc

It will be on Scotland’s people, website which isn’t a subs site

Edit. Where did yiu get the marriage details as it’s not showing on Scotland’s people ?

Both David's and Anna's baptisms are on one of the other threads, so I don't know why this request is needed

Census info is also there.........................

"Scotland Marriages, 1561-1910," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTKM-7P8 : 10 February 2018), D. White and Anna Beattie, 25 Oct 1871; citing Montrose,Angus,Scotland, index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 6,035,516.

Batch number M11312-1

Other marriages from the Batch are on SP - perhaps the omission is SP's error

No omission on Scotlandspeople, Shirley has already posted the details of the marriage from SP indexes.

Oops. So she did. I missed that bit. Still, no-one’s perfect ;-)

rootgatherer Report 4 Dec 2019 19:32

No problem ErikaH. It's just a little unusual for marriages only to show the initial letter of the Christian name and not even a diminutive form of the name. Makes it more difficult when searching the indexes.

Regarding omissions on Scotlandspeople, from personal experience, I do that they exist.

As for no-ones perfect, I've spent 60 years looking for Mr. Perfect. I'll have to give up and n that one now lol :-)
