I'm looking for a birthdate for my great Grandfather, John Shearer. I believe he was born in 1869 in MacDuff. I have a birth registration but would like to verify it is the correct John Shearer. I have his death registry but there is a mystery regarding the names of his parents. John died in 1944. He lived in Aberdeen at the time of his death. Does anyone know if his birthdate would be registered in any public records. Thank you.
