Hello Dawn, Thanks for the offer, not sure if you'll be able to help but fingers crossed... This is the only information I have. David Murray born abt 1805 - Annan, Scotland I'm hoping you might be able to tell me who is parents are, & if there are any brothers & sisters. I know David married someone by the name of Martha from Keighley in Yorkshire. His oldest child was born in 1834. I've found him on the 1851 census, but nothing before. Thanks in advance, Claire

Hi dawn Is it possible for you to trace any relatives of Thomas Mackenzie. In the 1901 census he was listed as 47 and a commercial traveller ( I know that is right as he was my mother's father - on her marriage certificate). He had a wife called Mary J and two daughters Dorothy and Marjorie also a servant living withthem called Agnes Wilkinson. I have drawn a blank in trying to trace back any further. Thank you Regards Jean

Galashiels 1854 - Lookup OPR Birth Records Hi Dawn Do you have access to the OPR Births in Galashiels, Selkirk, Scotland in 1854? Can you lookup the birth record of my GGF Thomas FAIRBAIRN born to Robert FAIRBAIRN (a shepherd) and Janet ?. On his marriage certificate, his mother is listed as Janet PALMER, but on her death certificate, she is listed as illegitimate and her mother's name as Mary SMAIL (ms NICHOL). He had a sister Mary born in 1850 and a brother James born in 1856. Hoping that you can assist, Regards Gloria J Moloney Caboolture, Queensland, Australia

Hi, Could you try and find the children of William Meff and Margaret Milne. William and Margaret were born anywhere from 1775-1780 but Meff is a very rare name so you will probably find them. Their children will be born in Aberdeen in the late 1700s to early 1800s. Thanks a lot.


Heather Report 9 Apr 2006 07:14

Hello Dawn, I have David Grant married Margaret Barclay 7th June 1849. Would it be possible to confirm David's parents were George & Agnes Smith. If so could you please look for any children of the marriage in Scotland up until about 1862-3 when they arrived in Australia. Thanks Heather in Oz

AUDREY VAN RENSBURG Hi Audrey Searched through all the children and the only one that I could find a possible marriage for is William. Others may have married in other parts of fife or Scotland, so would return loads of possibles. Or they married later than my records. WILLIAM FOULIS married HELEN SMITH, 19 Aug 1854, Balmerino. This is the only child that I could find for this couple. ELIZABETH FOULIS, b 18 Nov 1854, Balmerino I can confirm that JANET HENDERSON was born 12 Dec 1795, Father WILLIAM HENDERSON. Also possible siblings for her, all born in Balmerino. JAMES, b Oct 1793 WILLIAM, b 23 Nov 1797 HELLEN, b 7 Nov 1801 JOHN, b 23 Sep 1804 DAVID, b 23 Oct 1808 SAML, b 16 Dec 1811 DAVID, b 1813 BARBRY, b 6 Mar 1814 MARGRET, b 8 May 1816 Hope the info is useful. Dawn

Hi Dawn, Could you please look for the marriage of Donald McDonald and Charlotte Feguson which would have been around 1863 in Stornoway. Also could you list their children with their birth or baptism date. I thank you for all your time and effort. Grace
