England / Consular Records
« on: Saturday 18 February 17 17:39 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

I am looking for the death record of a Helen McDonald born circa 1827 Crieff Perthshire

She was married first to a John Gow who died Alexandria Egypt 8th Oct 1867.
She then married a Charles Scott who died in Perthshire May 1893.

I know that Helen spent time in Liverpool as half her children to John Gow were born there the rest being born in Egypt. I also know that Charles Scott was in Egypt as well and that as he was born in the same area as John Gow it is very possible that they all knew one another.

I cannot find a death for Helen in the UK so it is possible that she died in Egypt.

Yours Aye

Scotland / splinters
« on: Monday 06 February 17 12:03 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All

Do you often feel that you are going round in circles and scratching your head and getting splinters.

I have attached an image all dates and information are correct as per certs from S.P. except his first wife's surname which should be Anderson.

As I say everything is exact except her surname, does anyone have an answer

Yours Aye

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / David _Leckie
« on: Wednesday 25 January 17 11:37 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All

Would anyone fancy having a go at cleaning up the above gentleman.
He was my father's oldest brother and this was sent to me recently by his daughter whom I spoke to for the first time last year.

I assume this photo was taken during the 1940s

Many Thanks
