Re: Register of Corrected Entries

Hi Andy,

It is fairly common for an entry in the Register of Corrected Entries to confirm the initial cause of death given as correct. The RCE does not always change the initial decision.

All the best,

Re: Blain family Greenock .....

The opening of the Forth Road Bridge was 04-Sep-1964. According to the following webpage the first day covers of the stamps were from that date.

I read the postmark on the envelope in the picture as 15-Feb-1965.

Re: 5 Freer St , Edinburgh C 1850

Hi David, At the time of the 1851 census, it looks like Freer Street had not been built. The 1851 Ordnance Survey map shows that it had not been built at that time. See: https://maps.nls.uk/view/74415495 Freer Street was off the south side of Fountainbridge, immediately west of where Fountainbridge ...
