Births in Laurencekirk
« on: Monday 07 November 16 17:32 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help please - seeking records for births of Jane Lowe 10 March 1844 and
her brother Alexander 8 October 1841, both in Laurencekirk. Scotlands People have no record...

Hi you might find there was no registration of their births ..It did not become compulsory until 1855

Hello Bruce,

Their parents were David Lowe and Helen Watt, I believe...they are on later censuses so it is a process of deduction, but it would be good to have a concrete record.

Hi
On familysearch.org there are 3 births to David Low and Helen Watt:

Ann Low  Christening   16 Apr 1826 Garvock

Mary Findlay Low  Born 6 Jun 1831 Benholm

George Low  5 Feb 1836 Benholm

I cannot find these on Scotlandspeople either, when searching I use wild cards as spelling depended on who was writing information.

Hope this helps in some way.

Yours Aye
BruceL
