The little that I know about James is he was born ab.1874 in Hawick, came to Australia,(when????) married a Mary Jane Best in Woollahra, New South Wales, Aust. in 1901. I believe his parents are James and Janet. Where would you look for siblings and his grandparents etc.
Can anyone help?|help|
All leads welcome - would love to learn more about his family in Scotland.
Thanks, Rhonda.

Hi Rhonda

You need to find out more in Australia before you can look overseas. His parents names will be recorded on his 1901 marriage certificate - this should include his mother's maiden name.

It will also help to know what county that he was born in. Then you might be able to find his birth and his parents marriage.
