Millar of St Cuthberts, Edinburgh
« on: Friday 05 January 07 03:57 GMT (UK) »
I have got the marriage certificate of Andrew Millar marrying a Mary Kirkwood Laing on 1 Jan 1855.  Very helpful that it was that year.

Only problem is that it only states father.

How do i find out the mother of Andrew and possible other siblings.

  All i know is in 1855 he lived in hope street, edinburgh. and that he was a fishmonger.  And his birthplace is listed as Dalry Parish of St Cuthberts.  And the father is James Millar a Farm Servant.  His age is state at 24 meaning he should be born approx 1831.

How do i go about finding him the 1841 census.  Is that one, one of the missing census's.

Is asking for a parish record going to yield the mothers name.  Is there a way of locating the information with minimal cost.
