Hi Tiana

Gadget,
I'm home from work and ready to relax doing some genealogy. What do you think of service records since both John and George were Captains? Where would I need to start with that? Tiana

Hi Tiana

I'd start with the National Archives:

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk

Try the catalogue or Online Documents. I'm having problems with the linkat the momentt - not sure why - so can't put up the full link  :-\

Dept would be WO.

Gadget,
I have found (maybe) the parents of Anthony Campbell. Do you have access to Colmonell ? The names I have found are James Campbell and Jean Kennedy Fr60 whatever that means, county of Ayr. I am not sure how I can make sure.

FR 60 means Frame 60 - it's the reference to the film of the record.

Have you checked the Ayrshire Anthony didn't stay in Ayrshire - any marriages, children, etc.

Colmonell is in the SW of Ayrshire:

bordering on to some of the Easter parishes of Wigtownshire and Minnigaff in Kirkcudbrightshire, so it's a possibility  but a distance from Balmaghie  :-\

No it was just a search in all the parishes for an Anthony Campbell with abt. the same birth date.

They did travel around a wee bit then - especially if they were tenant farmers/ag labourers but he seems to be certain that he was born Balmaghie and I'd be more inclined to think that his baptism wasn't entered in the registers for one reason or another.

The Kirk Sessions Records might be your best chance but I'm not sure if they're available outside of the major centres in Scotland.

It might be worth looking at all the Campbell births in Balmaghie around that time to see if you can identify a similar naming sequence.
