Hiya I had a look on find my past and found the newspaper articles.  I can see that there is a possible relation to the Marion I'm looking for but I can't find any birth details for him.  His name is and he stayed in the same area - I'm thinking this may be a brother or cousin?

He was born in 1940 in the St Clements area of Dundee I can't see a death for him
This child is also recorded on SP births under Callander/Burns/Wallace so seems to be linked to both Doris and Marion. As you already have a probable link address-wise between him and Marion ( i.e. 11,St Fillans Terr) this looks to be the family you are seeking.

Given how recent the records that you want to check are, it would be so much better to visit on of the main genealogy centres and look at the certs there to try and figure out Marion's life and family.

You can also do a personal search for births after late 1920s (I always forget the year, Forfarian!) to include mother's maiden name.

There is at least one possible sister, Doris, born in 1934 in St Clements, Dundee. She died in Dundee in 1996 at the age of 64. Mother's maiden name given as Burns. 

The surname of Duggan also features in Doris' death indexed entries. In fact there are four surnames indexed for her:

Callander
Duggan
Stewart
Smith

They all have the same ref of 351/ 542.

The following from the Dundee Courier dated 26/9/1949 might be relevant.

Weatherall, Greer (Ireland & Scotland)

Births from 1929 include the mother's maiden surname in the index, and you can search using that information.

Thank you all so much, I'll look over the article this afternoon and plan to check electoral roles for the area as soon as possible.

Would any of you know how I could confirm if this was the Marion who spent time/had a baby in Clement Park in 1957 once i have linked her to the address?  finally if there is no birth father listed on the birth certificate would there be a way to find this out (unlikely I know) and if it's a DNA check can you advise the best site please.

Thanks again for all your help ☺
