There is only one death showing for a Janet Reid/Heron and that was in Perthshire in 1896 (b. 1813). Similarly there is a death in 1902 in Perthshire for a James Heron b. 1815  :)

IGI is the International Genealogic Index on www.familysearch.org. It is particularly good for Scotland in the period just at the start of official registration in 1855 up to 1874ish when the Mormons stopped loading on records. Details before this refer to the entries on the Old Parish Registers, ie Presbyterian/ established Church of Scotland entries in the main. It is a useful search tool from which you can then move on to Scotlands People and view the original images.

Just check whether the entry is actual extact or a member submitted entry (which can be plain wrong and needs to be verified elsewhere). Each entry clearly shows the source of the information.

Have a look at this guide here on RC on Scottish research resources www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,24468.0.html
