Hi,
  I'm looking for any information on the following people who emigrated from the Ballinamallard area of Fermanagh in the 1910/20s to Dundee:
Robert Armstrong 16 Oct 1890 - had a son in Ireland called George
Susan Armstrong 16 Aug 1896 - married a man John Houston
Maargaret Armstrong 12 Jul 1898 - may have married a man McGechie

I've searched for spouses on Ancestry and FreeBMD without success.  I've also tried Dundee newspaper archives.

Paul
McGrath (Mitchelstown, Cork and Manchester)
Armstrong (Ballinamallard, Fermanagh)
Breen (Omagh, Tyrone)
Gofton (Northumberland)
Miller (upto 1880s Clones, Monaghan, from 1880s Sancton and Market Weighton, Yorkshire)
Donnelly (Collegeland, Armagh/Tyrone)

For reference here's the family in 1901 living in Salloon townland- www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Fermanagh/Ballinamallard/Salloon/1355082

Family has moved into Ballinamallard by 1911-

Can't see a birth for George in Enniskillen district but perhaps he was born after 1916.

Thank you, I should have emphasised just information from Scotland as I had the census stuff already.  Thanks for the pointer to the Scottish site,  I wasn't aware of that one.  I'll check it out.

Thank you for both of these.  I'll look into this site.  One of the deaths is supposed to correspond with the wedding of their nephew Jim in NI who was to honeymoon with them in Scotland but unfortunately the Aunt passed.  Need to find out which one :-)

Only downside to the birth searching is you cannot specify the mother's name or father's first name to narrow down the list.

I'd likely end up spending 12 on people who aren't born to the parents I want.

Since you posted in The Common Room (rather than on a Scottish board) it wasn't clear exactly what you wanted (or indeed already had). The details I posted for reference give ages in census etc. and might assist in finding them in Scottish records.

If the child of a couple died after 1973(in Scotland) then the mother's maiden surname should be on the death index , that might help identify possible births.
