If people stayed in one location all their lives it's often possible to take an educated guess as to the correct cert, as long as the name is not too common - but the problem is that often people didn't start off, marry, or end up, in the location you expect, so it's a case of widening the search area to the neighbouring districts, and if necessary widening the date window.

as you say, sometimes you just have to take a chance on the certs and see if anything connected turns up...


Cheers Shane,

Will do as you suggest and take a punt on those Ellen Fagan certificates and keep my fingers crossed

Chris, the Annie Cassels and Edward Connolly in the Scottish Records are indeed the people you are looking for, I have put together a pretty good tree for this family, let me know if you are interested in having access.
