DAVIDSON, Alexander
« on: Monday 17 July 17 21:40 BST (UK) »
Alexander Davidson was born on 8th November 1885 in Edinburgh to parents, William George Davidson and Henrietta Davidson.  I have his birth record, and he appears in the 1901 Scotland Census.  Then I can find no record of him at all. 
I am looking for marriage and/or death data, and would appreciate any direction possible.  Thanks!

Have you found his parents and siblings on the 1911 census?

You will have to look on Scotlands People for marriage/death records.  Index is free to search but you have to buy credits to download any records

Deaths up to 1966 can be downloaded and marriages to 1941

Thanks.  I did go to Scotlands People but only the birth record.  I will keep digging - thanks for responding.

You may also want to check if he died in WW1.  If he did - you should find him on www.cwgc.org

What was Henrietta's maiden name?
