Fife / Re: searching for glen dewars
« on: Monday 19 October 20 22:07 BST (UK)  »
Hello Krissy, hope this post reaches you after long time, just found it this evening. My paternal Grandmother was called Euphemia Meldrum Glen, daughter of David Glen, born 1829 Abbotshall, Fife and Elizabeth Dewar, born Auchtenderran, Fife.  David's parents were John Glen, born 1807 Kincardineshire and died 1867 at Abbotshall, Fife and Euphemia Meldrum born 1799 and died 1882 in Abbotshall   Elizabeth Dewar's parents were Henry Dewar, born 1803 Fife, no locality yet,  and Rachel Mitchell born 1806 Wemyss, and died 1860 Kinghorn. Lot of other relatives from Fife area
Best wishes

Sandra, thanks and yes I read that link, and passed on to 2 family members, who are closer  to the deceased than me. One is in Canada but only very recently started her searches and of course like most of us didn't ask any questions etc before, and was pretty adamant we were not related owing to variations in that family name of Lawrie/Laurie till I explained in full the connection.
The other does not have worldwide subs, twas this one that asked me the question, but explained what the link was about and what is required, leaving up to them now. I only very recently took up an Ancestry Worldwide sub, wish I had done this few years back, so much more information to hand.

Again thank you for valuable information, stay well and safe

Bill

Hello and Thanks, yes the death record matches who am trying to trace, but my request is also on behalf of another family member who cannot find the birth record either, he is closer to RW than me, and another helpful person has just indicated that birth records for 1935 are not available yet, so seem to be stuck for time being, Thank you for helping

Canada Lookup Request / Robert William Lawrie/Laurie
« on: Sunday 30 August 20 16:41 BST (UK)  »
Hello from Newcastle upon Tyne, have taken Ancestry Worldwide, without success, to try and find the birth record of the above named, believed to be a son of Alexander Lawrie and Jane McDade, born around 1935 in Ontario and died 1995, same city, Alexander is my 2nd Gt Uncle and I know he and his wife emigrated to Canada around 1912, and only records of birth/census for Canada are up to 1921. Greatly appreciate any help/suggestions, Thank Bill

Hello Martin, no Gladys Elizabeth so far on my Wife's tree. However I find a Gladys Elizabeth Duncum shown as born 3rd quarter 1879 at Chertsey to William James Duncum - 1848 to 1927 and Alice M Cundy - 1849 to 1886. Then on 1891 census living with widowed father and siblings at 30 the Heath, Weybridge, and she is noted in 1901 census, which alas I cannot read. A marriage entry for Gladys to a Walter Gerald Loughborough on 3rd July at Emmanuel, Hampstead, when she was 27 and he 26. In April 1907 a son is born, Richard Walter Loughborough, appears to have been the only child, but also to have died late 1917, when the family was living at Lee on Solent - Walter is registered on marriage and census records as a Medical Practitioner, and he died 1957 in hospital, Portsmouth, though family address was Clanconel, Lee on Solent, with Gladys preceding him  in 1946, at the family address. There is an Ancestry record for Gladys with her birth of around 1880 in Weybridge but that is from the 1881 census, however through various searches I cannot find any record of that year and place, only the official one for 1879, however someone my either confirm my date or correct me. Hoping you find this useful, regards.

Hello, doing research on my Wife's maternal family, her maternal Grandmother has the maiden name of Duncum. When I started  a few years back, had very little information on that name, now gathered some more family members so am interested to know if there are other Duncum descendants here. All family were in and around London - Shoreditch/Mile End old town/Bethnal Green/Stoke Newington and Islington - where my wife's Mother was born to A. Duncum who married a W Smith. Hope to hear from someone. Thanks
