families.I'm now looking for the family of George John Davidson Thom
brn April 17,1877 who married Elizabeth Mitchell Calder of Peterhead
circa 1900.Their 1st? child Elizabeth Calder Thom was born about 1901
in Peterhead as were 3 or four of their subsequent children.(The
family emmigrated to western Canada before 1917.)Where help is
needed re:George--Is there a birth record for him in Peterhead?If so
who were his parents? He would have been 3-4 years old 1881 census
and 13-14 1891 Census.Also,is there a marriage record for him and
Elizabeth? Thanks for any help anyone would be able to offer.
