Hello,

Apologies if I sound pedantic - not trying to sound so  :O)

I don't know what info other than posted you have.  Hopefully you live in Scotland.  I'll give my standard post - and hopefully some Rootschatters may be able to help.  Good luck with your research.

For beginners (and the experienced who haven't used it before), log on to the following site:
http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/   (you’ll find people calling it SP) This is the official govt website lots of interesting stuff can be found - mainly from your grand and gt grandparents backwards. You can get info online - deaths to from 1855 to 1956, marriages from 1855 to 1931.  Births from 1855 until 1906.  Census records to 1901.  You can also get info from parish records before 1855 - the website tells you what you can get.  Basically a per per view site (free to register and get some good info from) - buying 30 units at £6 a go.  Once you have a skeleton of info it's then cheaper to organise a visit to a Registrars Office which has computer facilities for searching.  I use the Aberdeen one at £15 per hour.  The searches are done for you and the price includes the copies of any records they find.

2.  A second option.  A great money saver - Aberdeen Registrars Office (as do many others in Scotland), - has Scottish Birth Marriage and Death (BMD) records online going back to 1855 and up to the present day (for Scotland).  Charge £15 per hour.  An hour should be more than enough to get a good core of info.  I use them as I live locally and visit in person.  They can be contacted on 01224 522033 or e-mail:  Searchroom@aberdeencity.gov.uk  They're really friendly approachable and professional.  Will save you days and pounds ++ on Scotlands People.  Depending where you live - if in Scotland, their help can be invaluable, (a local registrars office).  You do not have to visit Edinburgh as some people wrongly assume.

The link below indicates their services:

Do you have any further info on your granddmother - maiden name etc. - approximate year of marriage and place.  Do you know when your grandpatents died - and where - approximately?

Have searched Scotlands People from 1925 - to 31 and no marriages in Scotlands for a James Allan to a Jess, Jessie, or Janet.

Regards,  Steve :O)

Stuart, I, too, am researching the ALLAN clan of Scotland. My 3rd Great Grandfather was William Allan born ca 1782 in Killochan, Ayrshire. He married a Margaret RUSSELL born ca 1799 in Fifeshire. I was told that this William was an engineer, and that while the family was away in Sweden so that William could build a bridge there, that a son was born to them, one James Dickson/Dixon ALLAN born in the year 1825 in Goteborg.  This is all family history, but one has to start somewhere. Are you familiar with this ALLAN Family? If so, I would appreciate exchanging information. My William and Family moved to Guelph, Ontario, Canada but the year is unknown.
