Looking for information on Catherine Coventry (born Russell in Scotland 1923).  She and her husband William Coventry moved to Channel Islands after 1948 from Scotland.  I believe to Guernsey, but not sure.  Have no idea how to begin searching for her or her husband or any children they may have had.

Lanarkshire / What happened to Donald Colquhoun
« on: Tuesday 01 May 18 19:25 BST (UK)  »
Looking for information on Donald Colquhoun born in 1826 to Angus Colquhoun and Katherine McIntyre in Cardross.  All other siblings born in Glasgow, and Donald married Mary Peden in 1852 in Glasgow, so assuming he grew up in Glasgow.  He had a daughter, Elizabeth, born in 1852 also in Glasgow.  His wife Mary died in 1853 in Glasgow, and daughter shows up in the 1861 census living with maternal grandparents.  I have found no other information on Donald.  Any additional information regarding Donald Colquhoun or his daughter, Elizabeth Colquhoun is appreciated.

Stirlingshire / Elisabeth Ewing, late 1700's in Balfron area
« on: Monday 12 March 18 00:24 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for additional information on Elisabeth Ewing.  Elisabeth married Thomas Edmond in 1809 in Balfron.  I have confirmation of 2 children Jean in 1810 and Peter in 1813.  Looking for additional information about her.  When and where was she born?  Did she have additional children? Who were her parents?  Thanks for any help.

Stirlingshire / St. Ninians Birth Records
« on: Tuesday 14 November 17 20:41 GMT (UK)  »
I have a death certificate for Helen Davie Edmond from 1886 which states that she was 60 when she died.  I believe the names listed for her parents may be incorrect as the family strictly followed Scottish naming procedure.  If she was 60 when she died, she would have been born in 1826, however I have a marriage certificate from 1841 showing that she married Peter Edmond.  If she was born in 1826, she would have only been 15.  Not sure where to go with this.  I would like to find out exactly when she was born, and who her parents were.  Census records all show that she was born in St. Ninians

Dunbartonshire / Renton Churches early 1900's
« on: Friday 22 September 17 16:55 BST (UK)  »
Apparently my Great grandfather played the organ in church in late 1890's/early 1900's.  His name was Peter Edmond and in the 1891 census he lived at 172 Main St. in Bonhill and in 1901 census he lived at 9 Lennox St. in Renton.  He died in 1908.  Any idea how I can find out what church he played at?

Argyllshire / Monybachach Farm - Skipness
« on: Wednesday 23 August 17 23:48 BST (UK)  »
I have traced my ancestors to John Taylor and Kathren Taylor who lived at Monybachach Farm in the late 1700's.  Also farm tenants during that time were Malcom Taylor and wife Jean, Angus Taylor and wife Mary Currie, Gilbert Taylor and wife Margaret McKinvine.  Looking to find out if John, Malcom, Angus, and Gilbert were brothers.
