    One of my friends tells me that her distancing-careless teenagers have started being a lot more careful since she spread the word!

    My grandfather’s oldest brother registered their elderly father’s death. Scottish death certificates ask for the name of any spouse,including female maiden names. Their mother died when the men were...

    To add to Pam’s message, people were often registered by the name the family knew them by. It might be something as simple as Ann/Annie or James/Jim or their middle names. Sometimes people only knew...

    A site with geographically wide ranging data is Family Search, from the LDS. It might be worth checking whether they carry Indian data.

    Maybe the parents were mobile, then. I only searched Kilsyth - a wider search will have to wait until lunch time. Could the others have been born in Canada. The gap between marriage and his birth...

    SP gives his birth registration district as Kilsyth. He's too young for the image of his certificate to be online. Removing his forename and extending the time to 1930-1940 and both genders only...

    Pam, the Dutch equivalent for Scotlands People is Wie Was Wie. The good news is that they now have an english language version, the bad news is that your searches are too modern. The limits for BMDs...

    I am running a One Place Study rather than a ONS, but some of the problems are similar. I have ended up with a set of databases representing different sources (eg census, baptisms, etc). I have ended...

    Have the others quoted their sources?
