    Hi Chrissie
    I had a look at the free search of the 1911 census on Scotland's people as Lesley advised you in post #29. Does this sound like your family in Dunfermline? All with reference 424/19/3.

    Christina 12
    James 20
    David 23
    Robert 15
    To see the full record you will have to register and buy a few credits as Lesley suggested.

    To find more about your Dad's siblings you will need to go to Scotland's People and buy some credits.
    Some records which might be worth checking (though are not necessarily your family).
    Death Alexander Johnstone age 95, Dunfermline 1963
    Death David Johnstone age 84Dunfermline 1973
    Death James Watson Johnstone age 73 Dunfermline 1965
    Marriage Isabella Johnstone 1900
