Re: Help please

Have you found Agnes on the 1901 census? is Alex with her then? I found them on the 1881 census Alexander 41 Agnes 39 and Mary 8, Malcolm 6 and Lizzie 3 [Naburn Street. Barony] all Glasgow born. What of Lizzie and Mary - have you got marriages for either of them and is their father noted as deceased...

Re: Looking for Ian Douglas Crawford

His name is very likely added to the family gravestone in Glasgow, while he is actually buried elsewhere. I checked http://www.memento-mori.co.uk for crawfords in Sandymount Cemetery, there are several of that surname buried there including a Jean T S nee Dunnachie who died in 1947 aged 62 - that ma...

Re: Looking for Ian Douglas Crawford

I wonder if any of the newspaper archives may hold any further information about him, an obituary perhaps. The Glasgow Herald or Evening Times are the 2 surviving Glasgow newspapers - but there were others around that time. Or if the Mitchell Library may hold anything. I did have a look at the Scott...

Re: Must the name on death cert be same as birth cert?

I don't think a birth certificate is required when registering a death - helpful but not vital. As I understand it when a woman marries, if she is single or widowed, then her children can automatically be known by the new husband's surname. They simply need to produce a copy of their mother's marria...

Re: William Boyd and Elizabeth Bings

there are 3 Elizabeth BINGS deaths of around the right age range 1 aged 78 in 1899 Newhills, another in Newhills 1893 aged 77 and an Aberdeen one aged 82 in 1890. None of them correspond to any Elizabeth Boyd deaths. Were they in fact ever married? in which case she would have carried on being Bings...

Re: War Widow went to Canada

Have you had a look for her sister too, if they remained nearby it could help tracking the other down.

Re: registering a babys death ?

What makes you think the little one didn't survive? Is it that you can't find them under the birth name? If. Mother died quite often the child/ren would be absorbed into the wider family circle, and take on perhaps different surnames. Especially in this case where a tiny baby would need nursing. I w...
