Thanks again.

Hi Wendy,

Mum & her sister were both illigitimate. Their mother was still alive when they boarded with their aunt, not sure where she was though.
Thank you for the advise on where to try for the records. Pity if there is the 100year rule.

The Common Room / Records for boarded out children, 1940s
« on: Yesterday at 15:12 »
Hi,

My mum and her sister, both deceased, were boarded out to an aunt and her family at some point about 1945/1950 in Dryfesdale now Lockerbie, Dumfriesshire. They lived with their aunt until they each turned 16, then moved out to board with employers, working as domestic servants. Their aunt was paid to look after them.

Can anybody help with where i could find their boarding out records ?
Thanks for any help
