Edward McCormick
« on: Wednesday 15 November 06 10:59 GMT (UK) »
Edward McCormick born 1815 in Ben??en married Jane McCormick in Bernish?? in 1841.  Edward had at least one sister called Sarah.  Their parent's names were John McCormick and Mary McKinlay. 
Does anyone have any knowledge of them or the place names above which are very poorly written on the 1855 Scottish birth certificate of daughter Catherine?  I'm not sure if my attempted interpretation is even close.

Thanks,
Jim

Could you post a small copy of the relevant section of the certificate? Also, does the Scottish birth certificate have the mother's maiden name (or was it indeed McCormick, the same as the father's)?

Hi,

I'm not too sure how to accomplish this manoeuvre.  Catherine's mother's maiden name was also McCormick.

Edward was born in Ballycastle but I have no idea where his parents Edward and Mary were born.  I am trying to find this information out though as it really would help my tree grow.
