Im using Ancestry, but can't find any birth certificate for Alexander.... this is bad I was on a role and thought i was good at this!

The only source in Scotland for BMDs and original images of the Scottish censuses is www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk It is pay to view but the costs are really reasonable, specially when you have specific dates as you have here.

Found the 1888 marriage now on Scotlands People. David's name for some reason transcribed only by his initial which is why it wasn't coming up in searches for me.

D McPherson married Ellen Millar in 1888 in Falkirk ref 479/1 25

Not sure if you have seen a Scottish marriage cert? It will give both bride and groom's father and mother's full names. This is really helpful always in working back to their families.

His son Alexander is my Mums Great Grandad. Alexander married Agnes Liddle (Possible Naismith) in Glasgow in 1910.
They lived at Lock 5, Bainsford. After he was killed in 1916 she moved to 112  Main Street, Bainsford.


Looking at the marriage cert will help you clarify the issue on Agnes' surname. The marriage cert is indexed as Agnes Liddle. The marriage took place in the Blythswood area of Glasgow in 1910 as you have.

The marriage cert will give you full names for Agnes' parents to let you work back on her family.
