Renfrewshire / Re: Looking for Descendants of William John Rennie and Margaret Kennedy
« on: Friday 07 September 12 22:51 BST (UK)  »
Sorry just keep me right... Mary and Hugh are children of William John + Margaret.

And I have a census with a Mary born 1874 in ireland which doesnt match with Mary Ann born '69 in Gourock, leading me to believe it is 2 separate people and that Mary Ann possibly died in ireland. Ellen and James prob werent born '74 but close to.

I have no record of Hugh on any census so he either died young or stayed in ireland.

I've got a quite extensive family tree built up but now i want to flesh it out a bit more with more info about each person. does anyone have any idea what resources there are for things like this? such as army records, work records etc

Renfrewshire / death at sea?
« on: Wednesday 14 December 11 13:35 GMT (UK)  »
I was just wondering if anyone knew what would happen if someone had perhaps died at sea. where would their death be registered? i'm having trouble locating the death record of my 2x great grandfather William Robertson Cowan, a ship carpenter/shipwright, born in 1872 normally resident in Greenock with wife Jane Paton Rodger. last child was born in 1911 so i know he was alive upto that point but he is not on 1911 census with his wife but it says she is married not widowed... any help would be greatly appreciated
