Hi Dawn wondered if you could do a few look ups for me My gggf John Wands born about 1863 Alva clackmannanshire married Janet Cowie Miller on 7/6/1889. He died in 1937 in Dollar, Stirlingshire I need a specific date of birth for him and details of any siblings and date of birth. I know he had at least one, a sister and that his nephew was called George H. L. Weary/wear.. (something along those lines) Additionally i think his parents were Andrew Wands c1830 (year is guess) from Stirling Area I think and Mary Nichol or Nicol was his mother, I am at a complete stone wall with the parents, can't find dob or marriage or even dod for mother. Any help with any of those at all would be fantastic! Thanks Carol

ELIZABETH ARIEL Hi Libby I couldn't find anything for Robert but had better luck with Janet. Found her Christening and a possible 8 siblings, all born in Glenmuick. Father listed as NATHANIEL GORDON but no mother listed on any of the records. Do you need me to look for any possible children for Robert and Janet? Hope the info helps.

Thank you Dawn, I have Robert and Janet's children. But, I have found my husband's branch from another area. I don't know my Scottish geography very well. I've been trying to access maps online. The family is ARMSTRONG. I have Adam Armstrong born abt 1823 married Christina Irvine 1865 in Jedburgh. Adam's father was Alexander Armstrong born abt 1784 married Margaret Brown prior to 1823 in Mossburnford. All the places are in Roxburghshire. Also, would you mind telling me how you find the info. I'm in Australia and find it hard to get out. Is there an online service? I don't mind paying a subscription fee. Thanks Libby.

Hi Dawn, I am after the marriage of my gg grandparents Robert Wallace Ure & Elizabeth Brown. I dont have the date but it should be in the early 1840's. My g grandmother Jane/Janet Wallace Ure was apparently born abt 1843 Glasgow. It is one of my brick walls. I do have one more request, but unfortunately I haven't really any information to give. My other set of g grandparents James Campbell & Mary ( could be Mary Jane) Shaw. They would have married in the late 1820's - early 1830's. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Regards Sue Bundaberg QLD Australia

KEILEY IN BEDFORDSHIRE Hi Keiley I couldn't find a marriage for Donald and Anne (with any surname) on my records. I did find their son William and maybe a possible sibling for him but nothing other than that I'm afraid. Dawn JANET CAMPBELL, ch 15 Aug 1786, Reay, Father DONALD CAPMBELL, Mother ANNE MACKAY

ELIZABETH ARIEL Hi Libby The only info that I could find was 2 possibles for Alexander. The info is from a disc that I bought a while back on eBay. It's an old one made in the 1990's. As for online info, have you tried the Scotland's People site. You have to pay but the info is wonderful. You can always come back to me for further look ups if you get some info from there. Hope that helps you a bit.
