Perthshire / Will Advice - 1925
« on: Monday 17 March 14 22:13 GMT (UK)  »
I`ve just downloaded  a relatives will from 1925 Perthshire.
Amongst the inventory it mentions " 300 War Stock 1929/47" and the "Dividends Warrant thereon 7.10"
She was a spinster and was living in her late fathers house i believe.

Any suggestions what the WAR STOCK refers to?

« on: Friday 07 March 14 17:13 GMT (UK)  »
I am visiting Stirling week commencing 17/3 on business and intend to take the opportunity to research Blairgowrie.

My great x4 maternal grandparents were born and raised in/around Blairgowrie pre 1813 onwards.

Can anyone advise me of any local family research groups in the area.

Does anybody have any local knowledge who may be able to assist.

His wife ; Janet Reid 27/7/1812 Kinlaven - Died 18/2/1896 "Burnside" Forneth


James Heron 30/6/43 Blairgowrie - 17/11/1921 Pollockshaw Glasgow

James married Janet Buchannan in 1870 at Blair Drummond - dont know church.

Helen heron - 1846-1925 lived B Blairgowrie Lived Caputh and Died Clunie Forneth

John Heron - 1848 - 1895 B Blairgowrie D Baldernoch Clunie

The men were all farmers.

Id like to visit local cemetery in use at the time plus identify "Burnside" which was/is possibly a farm/croft.

Any help/advice appreciated.

Ill be staying in Stirling so fairly local.
One record mentions Milton of Clunie and I believe there is still a farm there.

I have just received a death certificate for a John Price who died 10th May 1880

I am looking for my great x 3 grandfather born Pershore c1811 who married in Manchester in 1850 and was a bricklayer.

« on: Thursday 27 June 13 16:48 BST (UK)  »
I would like to view war diaries for the 1/8 BTN Lancashire Fusilers for 1914/1915..

Is this possible and if so how and where??

Also would the TF formed in 1908 have kept records up to the outbreak of WW1 and again if so are they researchable??

Thank You

Does anybody have any information re the 3rd Battalion Volunteers based on Cross Lane Barracks Salford.

I believe they became the 1/8th BN Lancs Fusiliers at the outbreak of WW1.
