Hello,

I have the 1881 census for the whole of the UK.  Do you know the place and date of birth of Emma ? I will try a look up for you.

Hi,
I have what you asked for, but I am a little worried how you came up with the date of birth for William Davidson.
Hopefully it came with your family grapevine that granddaddy was born on the 25 April 1860.

Anyway this is what I found.
William Davidson born 25/4/1860 Dundee Angus.
Mother,  Williamina Davidson,
He would have been Illegitimate.

Also Alexander Davidson born 31/12/1857. Dundee
mother Williamina Davidson.

Also Johann Dackers Davidson, born 29/12/1862,Dundee.

Williamina Davidson, married  Alexander Dakers 13/3/1863 Dundee.

They then had John Dakers 23/11/1864 Dundee.

If you are sure this is your family, the next thing is to buy the deaths of these parents, it is a lot easier if they are in Scotland.

So Pleased you are pleased. :D
So often we don't hear if people are happy.
Really the best thing to do next is get the Marriage certificate, from scotlandspeople site. You can buy your cert for about $3.00 online. This will give you the parents names, as do the deaths. Only in Scotland though.
