Hi

I am not a geneologist, but would appreciate some help. I am looking for birth records for Matilda Strickland, who was born in Scotland in 1898. Unfortunately everywhere I go comes up with a blank. I have lookes on Scotlands people website, but the pages stop at Mary Strickland and there are no further entries.
I would appreciate any advice anyone is able to give!

Thanks
Ceri

Since you have been into www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk you have seen the official records for the 1901 census and if you have not done so a complete search for any record for a Matilda Strickland draws a blank. This would indicate that some of the information given is wrong ie Country and year of birth or first name and surname.

A search for any Strickland births in 1898+/- 1 yr

1 1898 STRICKLAND ALEXANDER M BARRHEAD AND LEVERN RENFREW 572/02 0296
2 1898 STRICKLAND DANIEL M AUCHINLECK AYR 577/01 0006
3 1899 STRICKLAND HARRIET F CALDERHEAD LANARK 626/B0 0044
4 1897 STRICKLAND JAMES BROWN M MARYHILL LANARK 622/01 1011
5 1899 STRICKLAND JESSIE MCQUEEN F MARYHILL LANARK 622/01 1094
6 1898 STRICKLAND JOHN M MARYHILL LANARK 622/01 1147
7 1897 STRICKLAND MARY JANE MCGEE F MARYHILL LANARK 622/01 0388
8 1897 STRICKLAND PETER FOWLER M LASSWADE MIDLOTHIAN 691/00 0059
9 1897 STRICKLAND WILLIAM M ARMADALE WEST LOTHIAN 662/02 0040

and this draws a blank for any female registration in 1898. A search for a Matilda with a surname starting ST in 1898

1 1898 STARS MATILDA F DENNISTOUN LANARK 644/03 0499
2 1898 STEWART MATILDA F DENNISTOUN LANARK 644/03 1243
3 1898 STEWART MATILDA TURNBUL F DENNISTOUN LANARK 644/03 2661
4 1898 STURROCK MATILDA F KELVIN LANARK 644/09 1198

No. 4 ends up in he 1901 England/Wales census in Gateshead - list for Matildas born in Scotland.

Matilda Barron 4 Scotland Dundee Bradford Bradford  
Matilda Craig 3 Scotland Manchester C B N Manchester  
Matilda Hudson 2 Scotland Northd Horton Entire  
Matilda Roy 4 Scotland Essex Ilford  
Matilda Sturrock 3 Scotland Glasgow   Gateshead  
Matilda Thomson 3 Scotland Cumberland Wigton  

The question is what was the source of your information and do you know the names of the parents or any other member of the family?
