« on: Tuesday 04 May 21 15:51 BST (UK)  »
This photograph was taken around 1960 outside what is now the Alexander Dennis factory in Falkirk.
Any help in fixing the "wrinkles" would be greatly appreciated.

I have a William Allan, born in Falkirk in 1797 who served with The Duke of Wellington at this battle.
Where should I go to find his military record. I do not know the regiment.

Stirlingshire / Black Tombstones outside Stirling Castle
« on: Monday 09 November 20 22:31 GMT (UK)  »
In Researching my Allan ancestors, I have found a document that says "The Big Cemetery Outside Stirling Castle has several large black Allan tombstones......"  It is some considerable time since I was at Stirling Castle, but I cannot think of ANY cemetery in the near vicinity, never mind "Outside" the castle.  As far as my research goes, my Allan ancestors were farmers and came from Falkirk.  Does anyone have any information on this cemetery and the "black Allan tombstones" ?

Canada / 42 Pinewood Avenue Toronto

Not 100% sure of the house number, but this house and the one beside it have been replaced by a park that goes all the way back to the next street. Is anyone familiar enough with this street to know what happened to the homes that used to be there. My sister was there in 1956 for sure.

The above was a bus company operated by a George Jameison until about 1924 when they were bought out by Walter Alexander & Sons ltd.  I am searching for any information that may be available concerning either the company or Mr. Jamieson.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Are these 3 Sigantures Identical ?
« on: Tuesday 13 November 18 17:57 GMT (UK)  »
I have merged 3 signatures together and want to know if they as identical as they appear.
All opinions would be most welcome. One is from a Scottish document and two are from American documents. All are dated between 1860 and 1866.

Thanks in advance,

I want to get an opinion about 3 signatures that I have on 3 documents.  It is not a question of being able to read them. I just want to know if all 3 are from the same person

United States of America / Who is this David Allan ??
« on: Thursday 01 November 18 20:17 GMT (UK)  »
I have a David Allan in my Scottish ancestors who turns up in some Scottish legal documents as living in Natchez  between 1860 & 1864.   My Ancestry tree also shows a David Allan who arrived in Mississippi in 1837 and this would appear to be the David Allan who married Mary Ann Robinson in Ohio in 1839. His marriage cert. says he is from Natchez.  Subsequent Census reports show him and Mary Ann in St. Louis in 1850 and Carondelet in 1870.  The census returns say he was a "Steam Engineer". My David Allan from Scotland was a farmer's son.  I am trying to prove that these 2 "David Allan's" are the same person.   Any advice / assistance would be greatly appreciated.

US Lookup Requests / David Allan in Nachez, Mississippi - 1837
« on: Wednesday 05 September 18 02:52 BST (UK)  »
The above is the only information I have on David's arrival from Scotland in The United States.  I need to know if he is the David Allan in my tree.  MY David was born in Falkirk, Stirlingshire on April 4, 1808. His parents were William Allan and Marion Kerr.  I am trying to prove that the Mississippi David Allan is the same person. Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.
