Re: image

A couple of people on another forum seemed to think the 1930's - Royal Scots. I was thinking the late 1930's because the older boy - my uncle was born 1926, I think he looks about 13, so the dates tie in. all the best Helen Hi Helen I'd agree as regards The Royal Scots, the 1st of Foot, aka "Pontiu...

Re: Statutory Death Registration HELP Please

Wondering how to interpret the deceased mother on this death registration. I'm guessing she was Jane McGregor when she died, Jane McArthur before she married and Jane McArthur after she married, which would probably tell me she had a 2nd marriage to ? McGregor after she married James. Need some hel...

Re: Help with reading a birth record - Forsyth Tree

That is not an easy OPR entry to read, not only because some of the letters are secretary hand but also because 'ff' is used for 'F', the long cursive f is used for s; a short line above a word or part of a word indicates an abbreviation; and the thorn, looking very like a 'y', sounded as 'th', is u...

Re: Unable to transcribe place of birth.

Apart from the Loch of that name there is no such place as Doon in Ayrshire.

There is, however, a mansion by the name of Doonholm down near the mouth of the River Doon, 3 miles south of the town of Ayr. The associated estate is known as Doonside, in the parish of Maybole.

Re: WWI & WWII POW Records

For Malcolm ELLIOTT, there are no matches. Incidentally, some possible hits that came up in the index included "British Army held in German territories", so that I guess that if there are any Japanese records they will have an appropriate alternative. For James BRUCE, the index has a pile of matches...

Re: WWI & WWII POW Records

Hello mb, Is the soldier's 'regimental number' included in the 'Soldier No.:1.4381503E7' bit? Good question, - don't know ! I was thinking that it would possibly assist if people offering to help your exploration included the rank, regiment, and regimental number as well, if known. Agreed ! For Sco...
