Ancestors from Scotland
« on: Sunday 16 August 15 21:08 BST (UK) »
I am venturing into some Scottish research on behalf of a friend.

I have looked on scotlandspeople and located the birth records for her father and his siblings between 1934 and 1953.

Please can you tell me if I pay the required 12 for an extract of a 1934 birth will this document contain parents names, in the same way an English Birth Certificate would?

Appreciate any advice. :)
Best wishes HL

It will give the names of both parents, including the mother's maiden surname, the date and place of their marriage, the father's occupation, time, date and place of birth, and usual residence if the child was born, e.g. in a hospital. Also the name and designation of the informant.

If you already know the parents' names, you could look for their marriage certificate. It will give date and place of marriage, the names, ages, addresses, occupations and marital status of the couple. It will also give the names (including maiden surnames) and occupations of both sets of parents and whether they are still alive or have remarried, the name of the minister marrying them and the names of two witnesses.

Their marriage certificate might fall within the period when you can see it on screen at home.

Great, thank you so much GR2  :)

I am unfamiliar with Scottish research and was unsure what was available within the last 100 years.

Thanks for your time  :)

Yes, I'm so excited by what I've found.

I have the marriage images of 2 generations now....... and they do contain a lot of information.

I also ordered a birth extract, so will be watching for the postman in about 2 weeks time.

Now I'm feeling a little confused by one of the marriage images.

 The address of the bride is shown on the document but it is also this address which appears in the first column, under the details of where the marriage took place.

Would it be possible to be married at home?

Hi Annie,

Samuel McClymont married Henrietta Mackay on 26th April 1935 in the District of Tain. The first column states they were married on this date at 11 New Street, Inver.

In the column headed "usual address" Henrietta's address is also shown as 11 New Street, Inver.

 One of the witnesses is Margaret Mackay and her address is also shown as 11 New Street, Inver.
