Green: no significant problems, Amber: exercise caution. Red: more problematic.
BMD exhange gets the green light!
However, there's a similarly named site, BMD Certifcate Exchange that's RED.
Brilliant site for anyone looking for family with Sutherland connections.
Thank you for this information, very much appreciated!
Enquiry re Walter G Cormack, father of Margaret Green Cormack from Wick
Greetings from West Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. I have only found your site and forum today, resulting from in-depth research for a Family History site building project, I am hosting. More concisely, one of my great uncles Archer Angus Skinner, born in Victoria in 1890 and served in WW1, married Margaret Green Cormack ( aunty Rita ) in Leith in 1918, before they resettled permanently near Melbourne.
My access to your country's records is quite limited from here, however if my notes are accurate, I believe aunty Rita was born in Wick, to Walter G Cormack (born c1855) and Maggie N. McAlpin in 1889 (born 1859). Rita graduated in 1915 at Edinburgh University with a Master of Arts, and the Uni has just posted a photo I have of her on her graduation day. I have a copy of their marriage certificate, and their marriage bore no children, however I am very intrigued by some old unlabelled photos of Rita, shown with 2 girls whom to my eye, may well easily be sisters.
If I may add, my eyes nearly popped our of my head when I found one of your old Forum archives, mentioning a Walter Cormack, lodged by a P Cormack.
I would really appreciate any leads you may be able to relay back to me, in regard to this enquiry.
In the mean time. warm regards from chilly Victoria, and thanks for your time.
