Hi Ryan,

You say you have the birth certificate, what information does that give?

hi sorry rose i dont actually have the birth certificate i jst remember there was complications with the death certificate as the spelling was difrent we had to prove the name actually had 2 nn's in it, well grandfather did as it thomas b.1917 was my ggrandfather and it was my grandads father, im sure he told me thomas b.1917d.1995s father is buried in mount vernon edinburgh but his grave might not be marked or something,

i can tell you about siblings, Thomas 3 definite siblings, William, and one of the sisters was Mary or Margaret that is possibly the name of both sisters, potential other siblings are James and Andrew, but not definite and the name Owen and Patrick do come up aswell, there could be other potential siblings of course that i dont know about and the ones i already think are potential siblings could even be aunts uncles cousins or fathers grandfathers etc,etc, that the trouble with researching a family so many common forenames and surnames it gets confusin who goes where, its like a thousand peace jigsaw and thats jst over a few generations lol

any help would be so much appreciated, Cheer Ryan

I think it is best if all replies go on your other post - it is just duplicating work for us as it is  ::)
