Do you have this information from the Peterhead OPR ? I can have a look
at the entries for more information if you don't.
- Hi Wade
Thankyou for the info. I obtained the information on Robertson from a handwritten record found in David Robertson's effects. I searched the 1881 census and found the information re Jessie and her three children. She was listed as a widow. I would like to find info on my gmother's siblings Elizabeth and David. Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
