I have moved your post to a thread of its own. It should attract more attention that way rather than being tacked onto a thread which is not really connected to your query. :)

Welcome to the forum AnnieKenny,
Just so I can search for you, would you happen to know approximate year of birth for either John or Annie? Also, if you know area in Scotland where they were born?

I find it interesting that the family had a servant to watch the little ones while they worked
You are surely using up your SP credits at a rate of knots!!
After your earlier post, I'd looked up a KENNY/LEONARD marriage in the free IGI and found one. Given your find of the Dundee birthplace, I'll post it.
John KENNY m Anne LEONARD, 16 Aug 1875, Dundee Angus.
I wonder whether anniekenny knows about searching on ScotlandsPeople?
Anyway, great finds and fantastic help to anniekenny!
All the best,

Must go off to sleep now but will check back tomorrow and begin searching for Annie McLaughlan (Kenny) and census records for her family for you.
All the best,

Good to hear from you. Actually, I just looked up marriage details on SP for a starting off point and now finding Census records on A*. As you know, the credits on SP time out if not used within certain timeframe...but good point.
Great that you found marriage of Kenny/Leonard for Annie.
... As you know, the credits on SP time out if not used within certain timeframe ...
Well, yes - but not quite!
Even initially they last (nowadays) for a very considerable time.
BUT, even when they've timed out, one has not lost them.
If one buys another sick squids (sorry!) worth, your old credits are added to the 30 new credits.
So, yes the've timed out in a sense - but, unlike Clementine, they are not "lost and gone forever". :D

Well, I was not aware of that as I only initially bought to help a friend locate her Irish family who migrated to Scotland during the potato famine. So have not been back since that search.
One does learn something new every day and on THIS site, every hour.
Hi again Deborah,
SP credits (30 credits for 6 pounds) nowadays have an initial time period of 90 days.
And, as I said, even when that time runs out they are not lost forever.
Sadly mine never reach their initial limit!
It's all too tempting to spend them!
At 1 pound to download a certificate immediately it's all too tempting cf. English certificates at 7 pounds each and only by post.
And the Scottish certificates have so much more information. Like Australian certificates!
Another plus is that Scottish birth and marriage info from the start of Statutory Registration in 1855 until about 1875 (plus a few later years) is in the IGI for free. And usually the mother's maiden surname is given (indeed "you have to love" the Scots!).
anniekenny, Do have fun!
Best regards to all,

One of my greatest pleasures is researching my family tree for about 10 years now. Over the years, I have met online many family genealogists and cousins many times removed and the one thing we have in common is helping each other out and making suggestions for further leads. So thank you for the offer but not necessary. I am truly pleased that you know more about your family and enjoyed the search.
