Alex and Fiona,
I was ecstatic when I read your e-mails this morning. This information has
been a long time in coming and I can't tell you how much I appreciate your
help as I had pretty much exhausted all avenues of research available on the
Internet. My Birnie Tree can now move forward in a positive direction.
Thanks also to Betty for putting me straight as who Alexander's parents were
not ! There certainly is a group of helpful and very knowledgeable people on

I was at GRO yesterday, and had so little success with my family that I
turned to your Alexander Birnie, whom I'd noted down - and struck gold as
1855 death records have lots of extras!
Alexander Birnie, joiner;age 77; born Peterhead lived 77 years in district;
parents Alexander Birnie joiner (d), Margaret Findlater (d) ; married to
Fanny Henry; Children Catherine aet. 12 1823 (I assume this means she died
age 12 in 1823), Margaret aet. 41 1858, Alexander 39, Fanny 36, Jean 34, May
33; Died January 15th 1855, Longate; Bronchitis 8 days; Buried Churchyard
Peterhead; Informant Alexander Birnie, son.
Hope this helps.
