    Births wrong?

    I found some births on LDS, it was going wellbut then I noticed one of the dates was completely wrong. They had the parent being born after the child? I thought I could make a wild guess and say around 20 between them. But as I went futher back it through all the others out. What should I do?

    no birth record

    Yes Margaret (mother) was called Heugh. I have Janet, Archibald, Margaret births, but not Mary or James. On IGI I cant find any more children belonging to Robert Donaldson and Margaret Heugh ? Its really weird.

    no birth record

    Yes its the eldest two, Mary and James that I can't find birth records for, and yet they are on the census. I am confused, why would the siblings births be registered but not those two ?

    Headstone

    I thought maybe the weather had eroded it and then at later date someone had redone it but got the wrong date.

    Headstone

    I went to Hampstwaite a few days age, and found this headstone which relates to some of my ancestors. Unless I am reading it wrong, the dates for the daughters death don't add up? The mother and fathers dates are fine, but I have the daughter as death 1896, which makes her 27 yrs (which is what...

    Photo

    I also wondered whether it was a studio. I just assumed because they lived on a farm (if it is the Skaife's) that it was taken outside. I can see something in the foliage, I thought it looked like a reflection (a 'flash') Would you not get a 'flash' from the camera, would it not reflect off...

    Skaife?

    Whoops :redface: sorry I really don't know where I got that from. Looks like he was in his 70's when he died. The children I have listed are slightly different to yours. William 14th Aug 1783 Smith 20th Jan 1785 Robert 13th Feb 1786 Pally 8th April 1787 Ailsey 16th March 1788 Willy 26th July...

    Is there a chance it could be earlier. The male in the photo (who I think it could be) would be at least 60yrs old (for 1885) and I don't think he looks that old. I know people usually looked older than their yrs in those days.(their clothes, hair etc)
