Thank you for your help. I am new to this and have a lot to learn. I went to the council and they printed printed out dob was 1944 not 1945. I too did online check and 1945 comes up. So it's strange how the council found 1944 and also printed it off yet Scotland's people say 1941 and 1945.

Sorry to ask but I was told to go on surname sit. I did I found McPhee listed but I couldn't open the links? Do you know how I do that? I feel so silly.

Hey, don't worry about it please  ;) The Surname Interest Table (SIT) can be useful for sure, however at this stage, the key thing is your own research and finding the correct info I would think... The link to the the SIT is here http://surname.rootschat.com/index.php  The specific pages on McPhees/MacPhee names that others have added is here:

http://surname.rootschat.com/sit-surnames.php?letter=M&surname=MCPHEE
http://surname.rootschat.com/sit-surnames.php?letter=M&surname=MACPHEE

If want to add your own names, see here http://surname.rootschat.com/sit-add.php  Have a look first at the tables and other names for ideas on what to add for you.

I went to the council and one printed out dob was 1944 not 1945.

That can be confusing to people.

If a birth was at the end of a yr, e.g. 23 Dec 1944 birth will show up on scotlandspeople as 1945 (when it was actually registered)

Aware of the past posts and problems, like Annie and Carole, trying to help you move forward now...

If you don't have these documents already, you need to get Isabella's birth, marriage or death cert to help you move on backward with hard verified details to work from. Can't begin to tell you the number of times people start with guesses...and just stay there without being able to confirm. 20th Century records can be so hard to confirm because you start to hit all the restrictions due to privacy/data protection (understandably really). Pick your certs to order and view, until you get back enough so we can all help with online resources.

Working online, for your info, SP have the following restrictions to viewing online images (as opposed to having to order them, or view them at a main Scottish genealogy centre or Registrar's Office):

Births - 100 years
Marriage - 75 years
Deaths - 50 years

Hi

I have just checked the location of the 1941 and 1945 birth registrations on SP.  The 1941 did not match to Thurso or Caithness but the 1945 one matched to Thurso so I would recommend you check that one first to see if her mothers name was Margaret
