Re: Missing ancestors

Thank you for that response. I had already tried Scottish records including deaths but could find no evidence they ever came to Scotland. I did find something for a Hugh Hannan and Jane McCreedie which I considered a possibility as name may have been mis-recorded as McGee. But no more information fo...

Re: Missing ancestors

I’m sure they would have been Catholic as their son, my great grandad, married in a Catholic church. My grandad also married in a Catholic church, as did his sisters.

Missing ancestors

I am at the end of my tether with this one. My grandad’s parents married in Scotland. His father, Thomas Hannan, had given information in 1891 census that his birthplace was Ireland. He died in Scotland, so I have his death record. He had given his parents’ names on his marriage certificate as Hugh ...

Commonwealth War Graves

Hi all. Not asking for anything but offering. I live north of Inverness and whilst out and about I often see little old graveyards, some with a Commonwealth War Grave sign on the gate. If I spot that, I stop and go to find the grave and take photos of the graves. Many of the graveyards are in fairly...

Re: Death certificate

Thank you. That has cleared a couple of things up for me. FMP has also offered a few more clues into the bigger picture I’m trying to piece together.

Re: Death certificate

Yes, that is a possibility I hadn’t thought of, thank you. Looking at it, entirely possible. What confused me is that in Scottish records, under the informant details it normally says “present”. I had thought that meant that the informant had come into the registry office in person to register the d...

Re: Death certificate

Thanks Andrew. I’m pretty sure it was some sort of institution Cecilia was in as she was also listed as “feeble minded”. It wasn’t the usual list of “head” and various other titles “son” , lodger” etc. Just a list of names. Here is the document section showing informants details. A66F52B0-E6F9-4771-...

Death certificate

Hoping someone here might be able to help me untangle something. I have found a relative’s death certificate from 1945. She was a widow, and the informant was her sister. This sister had been listed on 1911 census as an “inmate” in Kilmalcom Dustrict (no institution name)and was described as being “...
