Thomas Burt b 1880 Scotland
« on: Sunday 23 February 14 04:14 GMT (UK) »
Sometime between 1902 and 1908, my Grandfather Thomas Burt b 1880 in Scotland became a teacher of shorthand at the Underwood Typewriting Company's head-quarters in Edinburgh, at Keiller's Commercial Training Institution, Dunfermline, at the Craigmillar Park College, Edinburgh and in the Evening Continuation classes under the Edinburgh School Board.

He was also living and working in France sometime during this period. Thomas was a Professeur d'Anglais at L’Ecole Nationale Professionnelle, a large college at Vierzon, near Paris, France.

In 1910 he then moved to Perth, Western Australia with his wife Christina C Burt.

I am trying to find out when my Grandfather worked at these two places.  If anyone has knowledge of where I can find these records or can help me in any way with this information I would be very thankful.

I have recently learnt that my Grandfather Thomas Burt born 1880 in Edinburgh, Scotland, attended the Commercial Institute of Birmingham in England and was an Honorary Graduate somewhere between 1902 and 1906 I think. Does any one know where I could find the details of when he studied there, what he studied and when he graduated.  Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
