Ogilvies of dundee
« on: Thursday 17 December 09 06:57 GMT (UK) »
I'm in Australia and trying to trace back my Scottish (Ogilvie) line. So far I know that my great grandfather was John Dorward Wears Ogilvie born around 1876 -77 (electoral roll of 1899-1900 gives him as aged 23) in Dundee. The family came to Oz sometime prior to 1890 (reports say he was 10mths to ten years). I'm assuming that the parents came out too. I seeking help to trace the Dundee connection back as far as possible.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Cheers, Scott Ogilvie

Hi Scott  :)

Have you looked on ScotlandsPeople?  John OGILVIE's birth certificate (1876) is available there for download.

Go to http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/search/birth/index.aspx and put in his name as OGILVIE and first names John Dorward.  He'll be the one hit in Angus for that year.

Cheers
Prue

hi Scott

welcome to rootschat  :)

as Prue states john's birth certificate would make a good start
looks like he was registered in the st clement district of dundee
i cannot see him on the 1881 census of scotland so he could have left by then
as well as the electoral roll i found a marriage in 1902 to lily angelina schiffmann in queensland
4 children - walter , william , edna and margaret
it appears lily angelina died in 1946 parents joseph schiffmann and emily
bridgland
can't see a death for john
