Clackmannanshire / Marriage of John Dempster in Tillicoultry 1842
« on: Wednesday 16 December 15 20:45 GMT (UK)  »
Dear Rootschatters, We have a marriage of John Dempster and Cathrine or Catherine Ramage in Tillicoultry on 9th December 1842. Now because it's before 1855, it's on the old parish registers, so it doesn't list who both their parents are. Which is a pity, because if it was after 1855, you would get them no bother on a certificate. Is there any way, we would be able to find out the parents or give me some advice on how to get them please? Yours, Wilton Endeavour.  :'(

Technical Help / Windows 7 and Genes Reunited wont show my saved tree
« on: Thursday 10 April 14 23:06 BST (UK)  »
I have recently changed over from Windows XP to Windows 7.
I used to be able to click on 'Open my tree' on Genes Reunited and it used to come up as a
sort of different tab pop up. But when I click on my family tree on Windows 7.
Nothing happens. I've tried using block and unblock pop ups on the settings to no avail.
I've also went to Windows Explorer 11 and still the same.

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Margaret Epps marrying James Fraser Ralston
« on: Monday 16 December 13 21:37 GMT (UK)  »
The above couple were married in Hendon, Middlesex in September 1945.
I was wondering if someone can look up and find out the parents of Margaret for me please.
As I have been tracing the Ralston family back to about 1800 in Scotland, but I'm struggling
to get anything on the Epps side.

Stirlingshire / Death of William Ralston
« on: Thursday 12 December 13 20:58 GMT (UK)  »
There is no cause of death on his certificate. But he was a lock keeper and he died at Underwood Lock, near Bonnybridge, Stirlingshire, on 1st February 1862.
He was 30 years old and the informant was Brother-in-Law John Adam.
His Father James Ralston was also a lock keeper.
There is something written at the left hand side of the certificate in very small writing saying "See report"
So I wondered if perhaps there had been an accident of some kind and it went to a enquiry somewhere?

The Common Room / death of 10 month old child in 1914
« on: Tuesday 12 November 13 18:58 GMT (UK)  »
I have been asked by a friend to see if anyone can throw any ideas this way or suggestions on the following query.

Wondering if you can help with a query from a lady enquirer called Pauline from N. Z. who sent an email to a lady at church trying to find out about a baby who died at 10 months old and was buried in the same grave as the lady enquirers g/mother.
Pauline lists the child as Ebenezer McKenzie buried on 11th december 1914 ( estimated birth would be feb 1914)  but she doesnt list her g/mothers name, but (she) the g/mother died in 1919 in childbirth and was buried alongside her brother who died of TB in 1910 .
 The enquirers mother had been born in 1917 and sent to the shetland isles to live with the enquirers  g.g/parents, then she then went to N.Z. in 1933.
 Pauline has tried through edinburgh records to obtain a birth and death cert for this child to no avail, she was then recommended to try church records, I have been on that for a good wee while to try and find something again unsuccessfully.
Is there any other way you could try and find anything out since you have other sources that are unobtainable to me which I would appreciate.
My thoughts are that this was the start of the great war and possibly overlooked but she also wondered if the child had been born illegitimately to one of her great aunts and no record kept but I get the feeling this was a child of her g/mother therefore being a sibling to her mother.

Occupation Interests / Blocker in Coffin Mounting Factory
« on: Wednesday 02 October 13 21:49 BST (UK)  »

There used to be a factory in Kilsyth called Murdochs. They made coffins there.
Lizzie White's occupation in 1929 when she got married in Kilsyth was the above.
Just wondered what the job involved?

Dunbartonshire / Alfred William Ashmall died 1908 Twechar near Kirkintilloch
« on: Wednesday 04 September 13 17:35 BST (UK)  »
The above person, Alfred William Ashmall, was an actor married to Sarah Ann (Annie) Duckenfield.
On 13th Dec 1908, he died in the Forth and Clyde canal at Twechar.
When he married in 1872, he was married in the presence of William Crawford, musician, and Annie Cassels, actress.

Now I have two questions that need to be answered if anyone can help me?

1. Where would he appear as an actor? In local theatres, tv?

2. I have tried the newspaper archives to see if anything came up to him falling in the canal to no avail. I wondered if maybe someone on here would have more luck in finding any reports of him. I have his death certificate. He was 63 when he died, residing at Barrhill Rows in Kirkintilloch.

Stirlingshire / James Bellingham
« on: Wednesday 01 February 12 21:31 GMT (UK)  »
Trying to find out where James Bellingham is buried. He died on 23rd May 1885 age 47 in the Grahamston area of Falkirk from Chronic Bronchitis.
His occupation was an iron moulder. He was married to Agnes Carlaw.
His parents were Dawson Bellingham and Martha Kilpatrick.
I have been to the office at Camelon Cemetery and it would appear that it was before the cemetery opened. So he is possibly buried in a churchyard somewhere in the district. Just a matter of finding out which ones were around in 1885 and if they still exist today.

Stirlingshire / David Bellingham
« on: Wednesday 01 February 12 21:14 GMT (UK)  »
David Bellingham died on 8th March 1916 at Barleyhill, Bonnybridge, Stirlingshire. He was aged 75 and he was the husband of Martha McCue.
He died of Dropsy and Cardiac Disease.

His parents were Dawson Bellingham and Mary Kilpatrick.
Although it's listed on his death cert which is a mistake as his mother being Mary Carmichael.

I have been to the Camelon Cemetery office and can find no trace of him being buried in the Falkirk or surrounding cemeteries in the area.

Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions as to where he could be buried. Maybe outside the area or in a churchyard?
