Hi, Dawn. Thank you for the offer. Could you try to find: A birth for John Clark, born Fyvie, Aberdeenshire about 1791 His parents were George Clark and Margaret Petrie George Clark born around 1766 (not sure exactly where but most likely Aberdeenshire or Kincardineshire) have his marriage in 1789 to Margaret Petrie in Old Meldrum, Aberdeenshire but it doesn't give any other clues. Also Margaret Petries birth probably in Old Meldrum. Thanks

Hi Dawn I would be very grateful if you could find any additional information on Elizabeth Dickson for me. I have found a possible marriage for her to William Rae 27 Oct 1816 Glasgow, Lanark. Elizabeth was a convict sent to Australia and accompanied by one child, William aged 5 in 1833. I am looking for any other children and her birth if possible. She was a native of Paisley, age 30, married to William Rae (a plasterer), address Moore Street Gallowgate,Glasgow at the time of conviction in 1830. Regards Carol

Dawn Thanks for looking anyway. Sorry the computer went sick (that do have that habit). Good luck with the pregnancy. Pat

Many thanks for your offer Dawn. I am hoping to confirm the children of James MILLER (c1805) and Elizabeth (c1809) MILLER. Elizabeth's maiden name is also Miller. They married in Glasgow in June 1830. I have John 1831, Robert 1833 and James 1837. Margaret

Hi Dawn Very kind of your to offer to do look ups. I am looking for the birth record of William Heron, born about 1820. I am afraid I don't know the exact area in Scotland he was born, although it may be Dundee (family story). His father's name was William James Heron, but I don't know his mother's. Sorry if this isn't enough info to find anything, but I'd love it if you could check it for me. I am also looking for details of William's first marriage, which would have been sometime between 1838 and 1858 - nothing else to go on here, no details of the bride or actual date or location, but I'm guessing it was Scotland. Anyway, if you can find anything, that'd be great! Thanks in advance and good luck with your new bub! Kat in Canberra, Australia

Dear Dawn, I don't know if your very kind offer still stands but I am desperate so I will try and hope for the best. I am trying to find the marriage of Mary Frances or Mary Francis I'm sorry I don't know if the Frances part is her maiden name or her middle name but she was born c.1835-40. I don't know her parents names. The marriage took place between 1850 and 1853, they probably married around Glasgow. The groom was Francis Hill, he was Irish born c.1835 His father's name was Joseph Hill. Also, I am after the birth of their child James Hill born c.1852-53. I'm sorry it's not much to go on, I hope it's not too much trouble. Regards Cas N.S.W.
