    What does his birth certificate say? How old was he in 1911?
    Back before formal adoptions, there were several ways it could happen. In the case of an unmarried mother, the Church might be involved....

    It looks like it might be the IGI - the International Genealogical Index - the forerunner, as Pam says, of what’s now Family Search. Does it look like tables of names and places, or pages of...

    Thanks, Pam.

    I wonder whether they married abroad? I wonder whether they married abroad? From what you say, it looks as though they were not short of money, and yet I can't find a marriage announcement even if I...

    Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.
    The obvious first question is whether you have the Joyce-George marriage certificate? That should at least give her father.

    Birth,marriage and death records didn't start in Scotland until 1855. Before that, you have to rely on other sources such as Church records, burials, etc. I have put a collection of messages about...

    Don't forget the price of international postage... I recently paid more for the postage than the price of the book (it was very hard to find).

    Glad to help.
    And that tip of using the full LMA name on Anc is worth having!

    Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.
    Two questions:
    Have you looked for a Will?
    Did James Arthur follow him into the business?

    Confirmation of Chris' finding - there is an 1856 death cert on Scotlands People for Mary Ann Kirby age 30, other surname Mcmillan, mother's surname Wales. I do not, at the moment, have enough...

    Did the tree-owner refer to the death certificate? Basic info from early certificates can often be found on Family Search, but only the basics.

    Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Paul. You’ve hit one of the rules of genealogy, another is that if it were easy, it would not be fun!
    Have a look round, have a look at the “stickies” posted...

    That can happen. If you are certain that the marriage is correct and it's the right William, it's possible that either James or Caroline was a step-parent. I see that they specified bachelor and...

    Anc says that he married 9 Dec '17. Also gives the regt as Lab Batt London Regt. I THINK it says his occupation was "barman".

    It would be a good idea, I think, to put the Huguenot question aside until you get further back in time and are sure which French names you are looking for. The main escape from France happened at...

    I've had a quick look at Scotlands People, no Thomas Seabright born 1880-1890. Looks like Helachau's find is distinctly possible.
