Can anyone find a baptism for Alexander MacGregor, born on the 18th of February 1860 in Contin? I realise it is after civil registration began in 1855 but it would be a nice date to have. His elder siblings were all christened into the Church of Scotland.

Death registration for Margaret MacGregor, died 1862, Fodderty
« Reply #19 on: Monday 21 May 18 09:31 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Margaret died in Fodderty in 1862. She was the widow of Simon, who had died there in 1859. Is there any record of her death? I only found the year on ScotlandsPeople. Her maiden name was MacKenzie.

I'd appreciate any help!

Yes - details as you said. You need to click on the  . column (6 credits) to view the death cert.

Ref is 1862 065/1  Fodderty.

Unlikely, because the registers of baptism from 1855 onwards are still in the churches, so it would require a visit to Contin to see the register of baptisms, assuming that it has survived, of course.

Yes, I did think it would be unlikely. Thanks anyway :)
