« on: Sunday 10 October 21 05:26 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I'm looking for the parents and siblings of Robert Findlay Cameron. born 1908 in Calton, Glasgow.

Can anyone help please.  I'd be most grateful.

 Hi Kay99 and Klouman,
Thank you so much for your kindness and the time you spent doing this lookup

It has helped me to fill in some mysteries for myself and a cousin. :)

Gladd to help, Marybeth. It is a pity I could not find John's death or traced Johanna & David. Very difficult if no middle name & such a common surname.
