It looks to me like an error in the register - the clerk or whoever writing down the wrong name for the mother.

Lanarkshire / Re: Shettleston death in 1912 - where buried?

If the children were in Glasgow area and still minors when John was killed, there might be some information in the Glasgow Poor Law records - someone would have had to look after them, and if they were in Glasgow and there were no relatives nearby the Parochial Board would have got involved.

I am finding it very difficult to research my Scottish relatives from here in the US.
I wonder why you are finding it difficult? Almost all of the basic information about births, marriages, deaths and census is online at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk.

Her folks should also be on her death certificate.
If she died in Scotland they would indeed.

There's a death of a Margaret Carmichael or McIntyre, aged 65, in Partick in 1918.

Sorry, but I've never heard of a Wearside in Scotland.
There isn't one. Silverhawk said that the anonymous lady who died in Shettleston in 1912 was in the 1911 census in or near Sunderland, which is on Wearside in England.

Searching for any information on my great grandmother. Born about 1853 in Glasgow. Married Archibald McIntyre on 06 November 1873. I can't find any info on her parents, or any of her ancestors. Any help would be much appreciated.
Her marriage certificate should tell you the names of her parents including her mother's maiden surname.

If you have not seen this, go to www,scotlandspeople.gov.uk, invest in a few credits and use 6 of them to download an image of the certificate.

Then come back to us and tell us their names, and we may be able to help find information about them.

Thank you all very much. This seems to clinch it - Christian married George Steel 1801-1872, but there were no children (I have checked the GRO for births with mother Oswald) and George did not remarry.

sgf28 and ColC - for future reference, where did you find the marriage listing with the fathers' names please?

George's and Thomas' brother John had a large family including Haig and Rachel. In 1861 Haig and Rachel were both living with their uncles Thomas and George, and in 1871 Haig was still with them, described as housekeeper to her uncle.
