    I need a researcher to find my Dad's Mum. Her name (no age) has her located at a house in Rothesay, Isle of Bute. Working as a General Servant. We took Dad's ashes to Bute. Knowing my luck, like visiting the wrong beach in Normandy, scattered the ashes in the wrong place in early '90,s. :lol:

    I've been scratching that itch for years. Did the DNA route without success. She disappeared and probably emigrated to escape her past.

    Find My Past added this collection today

    Scotland, Forfarshire (Angus), Dundee, D C Thomson Staff War Album 1939-1945
    Search through this unique collection of vivid portrait images of men and women employed with DC Thompson in Dundee, who volunteered to serve during the Second World War. DC Thomson, the long established Dundee based publishing company, is the parent company of Findmypast. DC Thomson is best known for publishing The Evening Telegraph, The Dundee Courier, The Dandy and the longest running British children’s comic, the Beano.

    Most of the staff depicted were employed at the Meadowside headquarters, which is still in operation today. The photo album contains each employees date of enlistment, name, notable details, and most have an accompanying photograph, many in uniform. A number of those listed were sadly captured, went missing or were killed.

    Find My Past have added a Scots Guards collection today.

    British Army Service Records
    Over 2,000 new Scots Guards service records have just been added to our collection of British Army Service records. These include records of Scots Guards officers, available exclusively on Findmypast and never before published, who enlisted with this prestigious regiment of foot guards between 1642 and 1939.

    The Scots Guards can trace its origin back to 1642 when they were known as the Marquis of Argyll’s Royal Regiment. Throughout its history, the regiment has also be known as the Scots Regiment of Foot Guards, 3rd Regiment of Foot Guards, and the Scots Fusilier Guards. Finally, in 1877, the regiment received its title as Scots Guards. The enlistment records include the names of men who served in the Seven Years War, the Napoleonic War, the Crimean War, and the two world wars.

    Robert, who are you trying to find and what school? I maybe going to the Mitchell Library in Glasgow in a few months and definitely visiting there next year after the 1921 Census is released.
