Title: DAVID MILLER REID BORN 27 JULY 1879
Post by: DaineZim on Friday 27 February 15 12:04 GMT (UK)

Greetings all

I am trying to trace the descendants of my Great Grandfather David Miller Reid born 27.07.1879 in Fordyce Village, Banff to parents Alexina Margaret Murray Reid and William Reid. I know this could be a difficult case but am hoping to find some information here. Address in 1879 110 Byars Road(?) Hillhurst(?). Birth Certificate is clear but cannot make out some of the writing.  ::)

This is his Portrait

Thanks
