**Completed**Agnes Shiel Welsh Tweedie
« on: Monday 13 April 09 21:45 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I don't know who to ask. But here goes.
I believe my Agnes Shiel Welsh Tweedie B. Abt. 1887 Galashiels, married to William Tweedie at Kings Temp., 29 Nov 1912. I was wondering if anyone could find her buried somewhere. She died abt. 1960. If you find her. Could I get the info. on the stone and where it is?
Thanks, Gala Girl

Hi again

Thanks for clarifying the Kings Temp.   The Kings Hotel is still there and does not seem to  have changed much.   Do try the chat room - wonderful searchers in there.

With my last credit for the next couple of months I think...  :O(  from Scotlands People.  You'll have I think 3 years before you can download the death entry online.

1960 TWEEDIE AGNES SHIEL  WELSH F 73 GALASHIELS /SELKIRK 775/00 0311

The Cemeteries office for Galashiels is as follows.

Cemeteries Office,
Scottish Borders Council
Heatheryett Cemetery,
Galashiels
TD1 2JL

 01896 753856, fax, 01896  753782

Can't find an e-mail address for them

web:  www.scottishborders.gov.uk/news/19377.html

The above address also covers the other cemeteries in Gala.

Regards,   Steve   :O)

(Have also sent you a pm about Ferniehirst which I photographed when down that way a couple of weeks ago).

Hi,
Thanks for the info. I hope it leads me to
the rest of her family.  She is my, I think
3 cousin. Say, do you know a man by the name of Micheal Tweedie? He is a helicopter pilot for the Oil Co. somewhere off shore Aberdeen. He and his family live near  Monymusk.( I probably spelled that wrong.) A little 90 yr or so old gentleman I met at Sinclairshill told me about him.
Are you from the borders originally?
How did you get that info so easy? Will the history place tell me which cemetery?
I have just started doing this and I hope I get the hang of it before long.
Thank Again,
Gala Girl

My pleasure

There a possibility they may - If you want I can ask tomorrow, as I have to phone them to find out about one of my wifes ancestors who was a sexton at the Eastlands cemetery at the end of the 1800's.  I'm a local form the NE - it's my wifes family who come from the Borders.   :O)

Your spelling of Monymusk is spot on - I've driven through it many times   :O) - I don't know the pilot  :O(

To get the info I went to the government website www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk.  It's pay per view but free to register  and do basic searches ( a minimum spend of £6 - allows for download of 5 bmds - assuming a first time hit.  I did a simple search with the name you gave me and there was only 1 hit, so for 20 pence I double checked..    .  If you check the website I think you can download deaths entries up to 1855 to 1958 - marriages 1855 to 1933 and births to 1855 - 1908.  Just checked - those are the dates.  Before that there's Old Parish Records.

http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/content/help/index.aspx?r=554&612

Getting the Gala cemetery info was done via Google  :O)

The link below is worth reading about Scottish research  ...

Thanks  Steve,
It is great to have the information about Agnes Tweedie. I went on SP and I couldn't pull the deaths up. I have some death information I need from Aberdeen. I can't find my John Hall Paterson family burials or deaths  in Aberdeen. The last correspondence I have is post cards in 1911. They lived at 75 Sunnydale, he worked as a clerk at the gas company.
John Hall Paterson B.19 Dec 1859
Elizabeth Drysdale B. 1856-1861
John Hall Jr. B 1883
William B 1885
Elizabeth B 1889
Peggy (Margaret) B 1896
Agnes Mary B 1890
Thanks in advance if you can help.
