Have you used scotlandspeople to see how many men there are born in the 1930's with that name?


Paul Report 1 Jan 2019 22:26

I have,yes.Got down to around 8-9,with 6 been stronger possibilities.Checked marriages & deaths & whittled it down to around 6-with 3 stronger possibilities.Just need to find the one that came to Barrow-in-Furness with work.He returned to Scotland (probably Glasgow) late 1960-to mid 1961.THANK YOU.

Using this website for Scottish records -

4 McQueen births with Patrick as the (or one of the) forename/s between 1925 and 1945. 3 Glasgow area (one likely died aged 0), 1 Aberdeen

Can probably all be matched to deaths unfortunately.

There are possible marriages, but can't tell without knowing which is the correct Patrick and then seeing certificates.

Would doubt they were on any electoral roll so finding the right one wouldn't be easy

Am guessing you have a connection so you need any small snippets to try and find the right guy

That's correct Shirley.
