That's great. No thank you or gratitude for people researching, just a curt remark.
We explore all possibilities and spend a lot of time doing it. The probate for Robert Jardine Kirk  may have revealed names of children had he had any.

Some of the names you have quoted could be living people. Many people born 1933 and 1935 are still living.

Have you checked Scotland People for death records ?

Ian

As the 2 people you mention were born in the 1940's - are they now deceased?  Rootschat has a no living persons policy so unless you know they have died you need to remove their names from your reply
