Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Marianne Pain in hospital with ?
« on: Monday 05 October 20 13:00 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone help decipher this? Attached are the details of the arrival of Charles Pain (Payne) and his family in Australia in 1858, on the Golconda. In the column showing health (and 'usefulness'...) young Marianne is noted as "In Hospital with ..." but I cannot make out what she is in hospital with! Or is it "In Hospital in the ..."? If anyone could offer any help, that would be gratefully appreciated!

Aberdeenshire / Cafe Buildings, Shiprow
« on: Thursday 12 April 18 20:03 BST (UK)  »
The certificates for several of my family show that they were married (at the end of the 19th/start of the 20th century) at Cafe Buildings, Shiprow in Aberdeen. I have searched but cannot find where about on the Shiprow this might have been. Does anyone know where Cafe Buildings were located? Or (pushing my luck) have a photograph?

Australia / Mary Ann Taylor
« on: Thursday 27 April 17 13:52 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for information on Mary Ann Taylor born in Aberdeen in 1861  and died Mary Ann Dunn in Perth, Australia, I think in 1944. She was my Great Grandfather's sister and I am interested in finding out how and when she travelled to Australia - and anything else about her life and family.

Aberdeenshire / Rev Henry W Bell
« on: Friday 03 March 17 15:46 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for any information on Rev Henry W Bell, Minster of the High Free Church of Scotland in Aberdeen. I understand that Henry Bell was born in Poona c. 1838, attended Glasgow University, was married four times and died in Dunoon in 1923. I am interested in his life in Aberdeen at the end of the 19th century and any information would be very helpful.

Lanarkshire / William Pinkerton
« on: Thursday 27 August 15 14:23 BST (UK)  »
We're looking for any information on William Pinkerton, father of Alan Pinkerton (the founder of the Detective Agency), who appears in the 1841 census in Glasgow, aged 70. Looking for any information on his birth or wider family. Perhaps he was born in Ireland?
