    Family History

    Just wondered if anyone has looked into this recently? Found a thread on here from 2006 but looking for more up to date information?

    I'm not really looking to do a family tree and go centuries back, it's more to do with a discussion I was having with my parents last night and my Mum said she didn't have a copy of her parent's marriage certificate and she actually didn't know the year they were married. I'd like to try and find out this information and what the best , easiest and cheapest way to do this.

    Cheers

    The easiest way to get what you want is to phone up the General Records Office and ask them for a copy of the certificate.

    General Register Office for Scotland

    You'll need to have enough information for them to find it, and a way of paying over the phone.

    I did this a year or so back. I also took part in the ScotlandsDNA project which traced me back to an Anglo Saxon tribe which arrived in East Lothian 1500 years ago. Turned up early for the first Hibs match.

    There's a thread on here somewhere from not that long ago that both Kurt and I contributed to?

    There was one only a couple of months back too as Ancestry.co.uk had allowed free WWI records searches around Armistice time?

    Try searching the Cowshed

    Cheapest way to do it is a free 14 day trial to Ancestry.co.uk but make sure you have enough time to make it count. I have done this in three separate stints to complete my family tree down all routes. Some as far back as the 1600s. It gives you international records which is important given that many Scots, if not most Scots, will find at least one line going back to Ireland, England or similar.

    Cheers. As I said in my OP, I did do a search as I knew there'd been a thread pretty recently but only the one from 2006 came up.

    May be the search terms used. I just tried "ancestry" and the recent one came up. Tried "genealogy" and the 2006 one was returned. I'll try a couple of other search terms and see what comes up. IIRC it was Kurt who started the thread when he was doing genealogy but I could be wrong.

    Unless J'Mon has been pruning again?

    Also meant to say, to get the most from the ancestry site you will need information about ancestors who were alive around the time of either the 1901 or 1911 census - so rents or great rents names and DOB will be need to get you started but once you "find them" the whole thing does grow quite quickly if their ancestors were Scottish too. It's easier to go back further if there's any English ancestry but the one area that is really hard to trace back is Irish ancestry due to record keeping being a) in Latin b) many many records destroyed.

    PRONI is the Northern Irish online site for the records they do have. That and the Grifffiths Evaluation ( a registry of land use etc) which helped me find some ancestors addresses. There are some online Facebook groups for Ireland which are very helpful and free. If you end up down that road - you may or may not - let me know. I'll point you in the direction of the groups.

    My hardest trace was a relative who had been adopted - took a bit of hunting but eventually found out the name they were registered under when born. They had an adopted name by the 1901 register but were born in 1899 in the Poor House in Leith under another name. Was tricky, that one.

    I know you get them in every family, and we had Uncle Rory in particular, but just remind me why they need the gen on the family's dirty old $#@!s again?
