I found a death certificate today for William Anderson, born on 23/11/1911 and gave date of death as 31/08/1990 in Minnesota, US. Don't have any further details. This the same date of birth for William Anderson that I have when he was born in Cowdenbeath, Scotland. This may be our man or its a remarkable coincidence!

Do you mean this SSDI reference for William A Anderson?

The transcription on family search gives a birth date of 23 Aug 1911.  Death date of 31 Aug 1990.  State is Minnesota.  Perhaps a mistranscription of birth date?

Interestingly, there is another SSDI record for a William A Anderson with this death date in Washington State

Hi there.. The Family you're asking about is without a doubt my family.. In fact, those are my great-great grandparents! One of their daughters and her husbands grave is very close to me (Here in BC Canada). And one of their grand children (My grandpa) is still alive and healthy! I have made a big family tree and have found as far as (John Anderson's Grandfather) (but have now hit a dead end)

Hi goodz,

Wow, this sounds like could be the same family!

John Anderson, born 1884, is my great grand uncle, married to Jeanie Stanton.

John Anderson had 7 brothers and sisters. His brother Thomas Anderson born 1863 in Dunfermline, is my great grandfather.

John Anderson's grandparents were Thomas Anderson born 1812 in Dunfermline and Isabella Paton also born 1812. (My 3 x great grandparents). This Thomas Anderson's parents were -

John Anderson born 1777 &
Barbara Hume born 1785 married 1806 in Crossford, Dunfermline, Fife. These are my 4 x great grandparents.

I have a family tree on Find My Past with loads of info and would love to share if this is the same family? I stay in Fife and close to all places mentioned above.
