Broll
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 06:54 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am new to Roots and I was hoping someone could assist me in finding any birth details of my aunt, Lillian Isobel Broll, born 18th August, 1894 in Wigtownshire, Scotland. Daughter of James Broll and Margaret Potts. In 1911 Lillian along with her sister Agnes Helen Broll and brother John Broll travelled to Australia. I have their travel documents but I can not find any birth or baptism details for my aunt. I have been searching on Scotland's People and Ancestry but without success.
I hope someone can give some hints as to where I could look for proof of her birth date.

regards
Sharyn

Added - I just searched births with surnames beginning with the BRO in the  District of Sorbie where the family were living in 1901 and Lily was listed as being born
