hi all,

i wonder if there is any more info i can subtract from anywhere to the birthplace and census details of george burns.

according to census details (all in scotland, 71,81,91,01) george was born in woolwich, kent around 1843.

i have george in dumfries in 1869 when he marries elizabeth smith and then appears on all the censuses from there.

i cannot seem to find george on the 1861/51/41 or on the igi's

can anyone help to shine some light on george?

hi all,

researching for a good friend in glasgow who is looking for details of the brown family.

i have got as far back as the 1871 census for timothy brown.

timothy had married eliza carwardine 24/7/1870, eliza died around 1884 and timothy remarried marion wooley.

timothy was the son of william, william was a naval pensioner on the 1881 census and was born c1823 queensbourgh.

if any kind soul has any free time to help me get back a little further i would be ever so grateful as i cannot see the trees for the forest......

Scotland / a guid new year to aw
« on: Monday 31 December 07 15:35 GMT (UK)  »
hi all,

i do not know about anyone else but i have had a terrific time on rootschat this year.

made new and wonderful friends and i had a ball at the glesga rootschat meet, cannot wait for another one.....

sadly we have lost a few well known rootchatters, one way or another, some may come back while others can't, may god bless them and their families at this time of year.

it is wonderful to see so many newcomers online at rootschat, so we must be doing something right........

hope the coming year is prosperous for all in all that they do in life
