I have my gran and granddads marriage certificate but I cannot find them in any census. My gran was Elizabeth Mcinness DOB 1880 and married John Mcvey but I don't know which year, she then went on to marry my granddad Peter Cochrane ( she was a widow then ) in 1918 at Blysthwood Glasgow. As I have no BMD records for Scotland I can't search there. If anyone could give me some advice as I keep coming up against a brick wall.

Many thanks in advance
Sally

The 1911 Scottish census is only available on Scotlands People website which isn't a subs site . You have to purchase units to view info on Scotlands People

Both certs should be on there. The earlier marriage you should be able to view by using purchased units if it was before 1911

The later marriage youn have to order through the site

Edit not seeing the first marriage on there

Just in case that 1891 family (posted by Shirley) is the correct one, here they are in 1901 - Elizabeth has left home.

I can't see her as either McInnes or McVey (or alternative spellings) in 1901.:

I do know that Elizabeth's parents were John McInnes and Jeanie ( nee McMillan ) and Peter's parents were John Cochrane and Helen ( nee Upton ).

If anyone has any information on these please.

Many thanks again in advance.
