Hi Dawn, You have helped me so much in the past please can I ask for another look up. I seem to be missing some of the children of GEORGE GRAHAM and MARY STRONG. They were married in Dumfries in 1836. Maybe they weren't all registered but MIs and other birth certs, suggest there should be more than I have found. Thanks again, Cath.

He's on the 1861 census in London and his occupation is hairdresser - the census return says born Glasgow but on the 1871 it says Edinburgh! If it's not too much trouble could you do a quick look for me please? many thanks Trish

The Unknown May has a mother who's maiden name is Forbes. I just feel like i'm hitting a brick wall all the time with this one!!! Even if you can't help me do u have any ideas where i can get the info from. I've looked everywhere! Thankyou so much for your help! Stefanie
