Title: George Mitchell family of Dundee * Completed *
Post by: conseiller on Saturday 12 March 11 10:53 GMT (UK)
I am trying to locate some ancestors - George Mitchelll and his wife Elizabeth Wallace.
They were married at Dundee on 20 Dec 1867.
The marriage certificate states his parents were-† Alexander Mitchell and Jane Hay and her Parents were George Wallace and Agnes Wilkie.
I believe they had a large family , unfortunately I can only find a few of the names of the children† and nothing else -
the few children that I have found and believe are theirs† are - George Wallace Mitchell (b 1868), James Stratton Mitchell (b 1870),
Alexander Kay Mitchell (b 1872), Agnes Mitchell (b 1880), and Faraday Wallace Mitchell (B 1883).
Any help would be appreciated.† Regards - Luc.

Hi EV,

Thanks that great - yes George Mitchell was a Butchers Assistant  according to his marriage certificate

His daughter Agnes married my Great Uncle  - but I have been banging my head against the wall  trying to find out more about George and his children - so your  help really is appreciated- thanks again - Luc.

Hi EV,

Where did you find the info about George being a butcher by trade and about Elizabeth and William, I have just looked at the igi and did not find it there -?

I believe one of the Mitchell daughters married a man called Macready - who later had a daughter called Agnes Mitchell Macready according to an old post card my mother had.

Regards- Luc.

Hi Weemanswife and Ev,

This is amazing - thank you so much - this is so appreciated

Cannot thank you enough - Luc.

Hello Luc

Some of your Mitchells have really unique names - so no problems finding them.

In all of Scotland there are only 2 deaths between 1855 and 2009 for a Charles Noyes Mitchell

I would imagine that one is the son of the other.

1 1943 MITCHELL CHARLES NOYES† † †M 69 ST ANDREW (DUNDEE) DUNDEE CITY/ANGUS 282/03 0633
2 1986 MITCHELL CHARLES NOYES Not Permissible† †M 77 DUNDEE DUNDEE CITY/DUNDEE CITY 350/00 0194

and in the same time frame there is only one Faraday Wallace Mitchell dying.

1 1921   MITCHELL   FARADAY WALLACE    M 37 POSSILPARK   GLASGOW CITY/LANARK 644/07 0291

To really progress your family history - although I'm sure that others here will be able to get you information, it is advisable to register at the government website at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk.† Free to register but a ppv site with a min. spend of £6.† For that you can download bmds and census records - copies not transcriptions.† Currently this would allow for 5 downloads.  As the 2 gentleman above have unique names it should be easy to find out if they married - and Scottish records give a wealth of information..† The search then continues..

Good luck.

Regards,† †Steve† †:)

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the advise I will check out what is available on this site - although I was told that it does not work with windows 7, something to do with difficulty downloading and printing their documents.  I think I should find out for myself -maybe if there was a problem it has been fixed by now - I hope so!

thanks again for the tip - regards - Luc.

Hi Luc,

There is no problem that I am aware of with viewing documents on SP via Windows 7.

One thing that often helps with downloads is what setting you have on your preferences to view images from there.

It is free to register on the site (you only have to buy units to view search results or images). This is the registration page for SP www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/users/registration.aspx  Under the section Application Options/ Image Viewer, choose 'Direct Download'. This works very well for most systems  :)

I've come to this late but hope you're still around.  My younger daughter is descended from George Mitchell and I've put what I have gleaned from various sources on my page for him at:
www.gritquoy.com/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I1950&tree=001Master

Please let me have any further information which you may have - living people are always hidden.

This is my first post
Hi Iíve just seen this. George Mitchell was my great grandfather on my motherís side. Her father Edward was born to Georgeís second wife Mary Petrie. My grandfather Edward married my Grandmother Margaret Byers they had two children, my mum Margaret and her elder sister Mary. I still keep in touch with Mary Mitchellís ((Edwards sister) daughter Doreen age 87  (my mumís cousin) who lives in Pittsburg PA. Doreen remembers quite a bit from their time in Broughty Ferry Road Dundee.
