Maybe his folks came from Badenoch (Upper Speyside)?

Hi everyone

My visit last month to Edinburgh proved well worthwhile when I was able to confirm that George was indeed the son of George Badenoch Murray (senior) and I got all the relevant records.  Even ScotlandsPeople had the middle name recorded with a "k" at the end  :o

Another success is notched up for RootsChat.

Thanks for all the help.

Regards

Family surnames being researched ...
Crawford, Neilson, Lindsay, Reekie, Davidson
Drummond, Laing, Pearson, Tulloch ... will do for starters but there's a whole lot more!

Found this quite by chance and wanted to let you know that George Badenoch Murray was my late uncle, Evelyn was my late grandmother who lived in Glasgow.

My grandfather (who I never met) was indeed awarded the DSO in WW1, for sinking a German submarine as I recall.

Hi ADM

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

It's amazing what you can find by just entering a name.  You'll have gathered from my posts that I have a wee bit of information for your uncle and grandparents.  In fact I can go back to your great grandparents James Murray Mason and Eliza Badenoch from Banffshire and John Taylor and Helen Johnston from Newport, Fife and Falkirk, Stirlingshire respectively.

The family connection is through a (very) distant cousin who lives in Brisbane.  He and I share parallel trees dating back to to Lundie sisters who married Todd brothers at the beginning of the 19th Century.  We are each descended from these marriages!

Complicated?  Nothing's quite straightforward in genealogy  8)

I will send you  a personal message with my email so as to be able to send over the information that I have.

Regards

Well hello there!

I'm absolutely stunned by this, quite unexpected but a very pleasant surprise nonetheless.

I've sent you a quick email with some further details which may add to your knowledge, I hope it is of interest.

Best regards,

Andrew

If he died more than 26 years ago you do not need NOK approval, anyone can apply. If you are a relative sign the form as the NOK stating you are the nearest known living relative to him.

Don't get too hung up on NOK approval...Its just the MODs way of having an umbrella for the data protection act.

Hi Jim

Many thanks for the bio for 'young' George.  I've been out all day and just accessed my emails on return home.

I have more information for George including marriage in 1945, children born 1948, 1951 and 1953 and his death in 1989. If you are interested please send me a PM with your email.

Regards
