red mail George Gauld (1872-1937)
George originally came from Aberdeen and died in Bayswater, Middlesex. Married Lavinia Campbell Mullins with sons Leslie and Stanley. Census and marriage shows him working as attendant. Unsure who his parents are- theres a George Gauld married with Ann Smart in Aberdeen though they seem too old to have had George in 1872. This George (married with Ann) seems have been the son of James Gauld and an Isabel Geddes? Sadly, its a common name in the Aberdeen area so theres many false leads to go down. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!
Jean Lewis ROSS

red mail Mr George GAULD and Ms Ann SMART married April 16 1864
Hi, was searching for information on the above people. Ann and George married in 1864 in Aberdeen. 16 Apr 1864  Old Machar,Aberdeen,Scotland George Gauld 1 Source They had a few children who are sourced in their baptismal records as having Mr George Gauld and Ms Ann Smart as their parents. Birth of Son Robert Gauld(1867) 29 Jan 1867  Saint Nicholas,Aberdeen,Aberdeen,Scotland 1867 Birth of Son John Gauld(1869) 16 Sep 1869  Saint Nicholas,Aberdeen,Aberdeen,Scotland 1869 Birth of Son George Gauld(18721937) 1872  The, city, of, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland 1872 George 1872-1937 Gauld was my great grandfather- he died at St Luke's House, Bayswater, Middlesex. However, here's where it gets confusing. All George Sr and Ann's kids turn up living with Ms Elizabeth Smart and Ann, still using the name SMART in various census records, with Elizabeth as 'Mother'. Ann married George so she should have been GAULD and why the kids would turn up as Elizabeth's children is unclear- presumably Elizabeth was Ann's mother and she moved in with her if George died or something? Can anyone locate the names of George's parents and Ann's as the marriage record on Anc is a text only, so there's no image like there has been to save the day with other shallowly transcribed records? Thankyou!
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.

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 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.

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?

red mail McLeod
Hi, I have finally got round to looking at the 1911 census, and have found out that my great grandparents had 2 children that died. I know about one of them and that he was buried in St Peters cemetary in Aberdeen, but I am having trouble finding out the name of the other child. I have been on deceasedonline, and checked between 1902 and 1911 for names that have appeared in the family before, but have had no luck. Has anyone got any ideas as to where I can go from here? The surname I am looking for is McLeod, and the parents names were John Garland McLeod and Catherine Cowie McLeod (nee Farquharson). My great grandparents married in 1902, but their marriage certificate says their usual address was Links Street, Aberdeen, but by the 1911 census they were in Albion Street. Their first child was born 9 months afterwards in York Street! Even when another of their children was born in 1910 they were still in York Street , and obviously moved after April 1910. I do know that my gg granddad was buried in St Peters (and his wife remarried and moved to Canada), along with his mother and some other person! My great grandparents died in Clydebank and Johnstone. If anyone has any ideas as to how I can find out the name of the child I would be grateful as I am banging my head against a brick wall at the moment! Thank you!

I am researching Peter Corbet(t) bn 1811, son of James Corbett and Jane Stewart, in Aberdeen. He seems to have had a number of wives or partners, the first of whom was Jane Chalmers (my ggg-grandmother). They m 10 Apr 1830 and my gg-grandmother Jane was bn abt 1836. However, by 1851 he was with a lady called Christian (Corbett) and a number of children, at least one of whom had been bn in London to Peter and a Jane McDonald. In 1856 he married Elizabeth Blenheim who died in Feb 1864 and then he married Maria Black in Mar 1864. Maria survived him but his death record only shows 3 wives and the name of the first is wrongly given as Jane Cormack not Jane Chalmers. Jane Cormack was his daughter's married name. This record also gives his parents' names wrongly. Does anyone have any more info on Peter - where was he in 1841? In London? Why did his occupation change between a quarryman or stone dresser (in 1831, 1856 and after 1871) and a boot or shoemaker (1844 and 1861, 1862 1nd 1863)? Any help would be great.

red mail Thompson
I'm looking for info on my G Grandfather and his family. George Arthur Thompson was born in Ryde (Isle of Wight)in 1876, son of John William Thompson (born Cowes 1838) and Maria Stout (born Wimborne Dorset). The family were in Ryde in 1861 and 71 and all but John were still there in 1881. (John appears to still be living though, as Maria is shown as being married). All appear to be missing from the 1891 English census. Family info leads me to believe they may have moved to the Aberdeen or Glasgow area. Both John and George were hairdressers/barbers. George appears again in London in 1901. Can anyone help with the Scotish connection please?
