red mail Info on Alexander and William Fordyce
Hello, I am looking for info on a William and Alexander Fordyce, born in Peterhead. William married Catherine Davidson and know of a daughter Mary Jane Isabela Fordyce. I believe Alexander married in Edinburgh and later lived in Aberdeen. Is there anyone who knows more.
red mail Flora MacDonald Anderson (nee Burley)
I am seeking any information on the above who was born July 1900, died September 1998. Interestingly, she married in 1972, an Alexander C Anderson. Flora spent most of her life in Aberdeen, attending Aberdeen High School for Girls, Aberdeen University and then Somerville College, Oxford. She worked in the League of Nations Secretariat from 1929-32. I am awaiting a copy of her marriage certificate but can anyone shed any light on who Alexander C Anderson was? All information and suggestions gratefully received. Thank you.
red mail GAULD, George 1872- unknown died in Sutton, Surrey, England.
Looking desperately to get any available details on Mr George Gauld who lived between 1872 and unknown death date. He married Lavinia Campbell Mullins, the daughter of Mr Robert Mullins and Isabella Bell Hamilton. He was NOT George Ogg Gauld, who was also from Aberdeen and died in Nottingham. George O Gauld was a completely different man. All that I do know about George is that he originally came from Aberdeen and died in Sutton in the South East of England. He was married to Lavinia and had the children Leslie Robert George Gauld and Stanley John Gauld. Don't know when George died. Don't know who his real parents were as there are a plethora of Georges with the surname Gauld in Aberdeen in the late C19. The most likely parents are James and Ann, Ann's surname being Cushnie. Though even this is not entirely certain. Would appreciate any help you can give. cheers.
red mail Helen Smith or McKay
Looking for any details of my grandmother Helen Smith. We think she was born in 1897 but cannot find a birth certificate despite several visits to Edinburgh. On her marriage certificate (she wed John McKay in 1922 in Aberdeen) she states that she was a bottle washer and her parents were Isabella Wilson and George Smith both of whom were deceased. We cannot find a marriage for Isabella or George. She went on to have several children with John (including my mother Ann Allan McKay who sadly died in 2013) and she died in the City Hospital, Aberdeen in 1938 aged 40 years after giving birth to baby George who died six weeks after her.My mum was two at the time. We have been searching for a date of birth for Helen (or Nell) for many years now to no avail. The family lived in Albion Street and were very poor. Helen never spoke about her parents or any siblings to her children and none of them knew when she was born or where she came from. Her only surviving child is now 85 and would love to know where her mother came from. After Helen's death in 1938 John went on to marry Lizzie McHardy and had three children to her. He died when my mum was 9. He was a labourer at Hall Russell's Shipyard. Any information would be welcome.
red mail Nicol family Huntly, Aberdeenshire
I am looking for information on Jeanie Gordon NICOL from Huntly, Aberdeenshire. She was born around 1914. She married a man named James Alexander NICOL in 1942. She died in 1991 in Aberdeen at age 77. I wanted to know if she had any children.

Trying desperately to find the parents of the above named people, as these are the furthest I can get. They had a son Edgar. He married MORGAN, Isabella. They had a son also called Edgar. He married OGG, Catherine, and had a son George Ogg Gauld, who had a son Leslie Robert George Gauld. I can't get anywhere more than GAULD, James and GLENNY, Rachel, however. Hoping somebody could help? Cheers!
red mail sisters Jean and Lizzie McKenzie
trying to trace above McKenzie sisters who lived in Summerfield Terrace Aberdeen city and worked in the King Street Post Office nearby. Other family names may have been John and Isabella. Do not have dates of residence. Could have been anytime from early 1900's onwards.
red mail Leslie Robert George Gauld 1907- 18th November 1954.
Hello, I currently am searching information concerning Leslie Robert George Gauld, who originally came from Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. He moved to Sutton in England , which was then Surrey but would now come under London since the LGA1963, which incorporated Kingston, Sutton, Bromley, Croydon, Bexley, Hounslow, Redbridge, etc. Whilst there he married an Irishwoman named Mary (Maesie) Curtin, and they had Georgina and Robert (Robert was 9th November 1952 in The Worcester Park region of Sutton). Leslie died not that long later- 18th November 1954, and thus I have not got much more details about him at all, as Grandmother remarried a man called Galliers and took that name, and this new man raised Georgina and Robert instead. Mary died on 11th July 2013 in Sutton, London, England. Robert married a Lesley Heather Twitchett and Georgina married a man with the name OBrien. Humph. I was wondering whether anybody could either provide or point me in the general direction towards acquiring details about Leslie's parents and ancestry and heritage etc. Thank you in advance. -Oliver.
red mail William Grant born 1898
I am trying to find information on my grandfather, William Grant, born November 20, 1898, Old Machar, Aberdeen who immigrated to the USA approx 1910. His mother's name was Euphemia (not sure of her maiden name). I do not have William's father's first name or any dates related to the family EXCEPT on Euphemia's gravestone in Fairfield, Connecticut, USA which puts her birth year as 1866. She later married a John Naughton AFTER the death of her husband, William Grant's father. In the 1910 census USA it shows Euphemia, a daughter Sarah, and a son William (my grandfather). So I am trying to find out Euphemia's maiden name, William Grant's father's first name...and any info on Sarah. ANY info on the family would be helpful....I know William Grant is a common Scottish name but i am determined to learn his history.
Mary Scott Anderson
Looking for descendants of Mary Scott Anderson born to Alexander Anderson and Susan Smith on the 28th June 1888 in the Old Machar or St Nicholas area of Aberdeen.
red mail Margaret Pirie
What became of Margaret Pirie, a hospital nurse and single mother? She gave up her son William Pirie after his birth at 12 Whitehall Road, Aberdeen (not a family home). Date of birth - 24 Oct 1915. My father was renamed in his foster home, but not registered as adopted until 1950. He became very successful, both in WW2 and after, and is now deceased. I know who his biological father was, and their relationship was good. I know that it was probably his mother who daily watched him in the playground at Gilcomston School in Aberdeen, but never said a single word. It must have been heartbreaking. So I need to trace my biological grandmother and the family I hope she managed to have. I have over 1000 names in the family tree, but my biological grandmother has eluded me. Can you help please?
