« on: Thursday 24 February 11 13:57 GMT (UK) »
We are trying to locate a burial place of Ksenia Valerianovna KURIS whio died July 28, 1966 in Scotland in a place that Russian language sources call Collon (Kolon)???

Any ideas where this could be will be greatly appreciated.

Thank youy in advance

According to Wikipaedia Collon is a small town in County Louth, Ireland. Is this possible? Or is Scotland a certainty?

Can't see a Scottish death for her at all unfortunately on the official pay to view site www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

Added: The Irish online index here http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#p=collectionDetails&c=fs%3A1408347 only goes up to 1958. Perhaps some of the Irish RootsChatters could advice how you could check for a possible death c.1966 in Ireland as Redroger suggests  :)

Thanks a lot!

I will definitely try Ireland - would not be surprised by such a mistake.

What a great bunch of people here....

Think I would repost on the irish board or ask the moderator to move this thread to ensure they see it.

What age would she have been when she died?

Did she get married in Scotland?

Julia,

"Nezabytye mogily" indicates the place as Collon, Eire

Redroger is right
