As you are familiar with Edinburgh, being born and bred there, would you know which 'local' newspapers would be the best ones to look at for obituaries in 1942?

 The Edinburgh Papers are " The Scotsman" and " Edinburgh Evening News". I could not see anything for him but would make two observations. The first is that a surname like MacDonald can be awkward in searching the archive as you have to also consider McDonalds and M'Donalds ( I also noticed that with the electoral rolls the reader has the surname at times as Donald !). The second is that it is sometimes necessary to search around specific dates - from my own experience I was only able to find my parents wedding and my older sisters' birth notices in " The Scotsman" by doing this as searching by surname produced nothing.

Thanks for all the great assistance so far.

What I now know for certain.

Adam MacDonald married Elizabeth Glendinning in Edinburgh in 1903.  IN 1912 they separated and in 1918 they divorced.

What did it say for number of children and years married in the 1911?

Hi there.

Details re the divorce from NAS (as mentioned by Gadget previously). From the NAS Catalogue:

National Records of Scotland
Reference CS255/1312
Title Adam MacDonald v Elizabeth Glendinning or Macdonald: Divorce
Dates 1919
Access status Open

There is a 100 year privacy rule on these documents which has now been passed so they will be available to view in person/order. Don't know what arrangements are in place currently for order requests.

Ancestry have online the Calendar of Confirmations and Inventories, 1876-1936. Cut off just a few years too early isn't it!

Would require a check in person therefore.

Very helpful information, Monica. I was hoping that you might come on   :)

Tsu, if your friend is trying to find any more descendants of Adam, it might be worthwhile her doing  DNA test to see if there are any matches out there that are possible descendants.
