The local registrar keeps the book of corrected entries. It being Ladhope area the registrar at Galashiels Old Library,Lawyers Brae should be able to shed light of it.. I had the same problem with my mothers birth cert which was altered because her mum died in childbrith and the subsequent entry was not put onto the computer even though it had been entered int the book of corrected entries. The local papers are the Border Telegraph and the Southern Reporter i believe both old records are kept at the Hub Record Office Hawick and a e-mail to them might get you your answers on line.
