Hi there,

I think Fearn is in Angus, and there is a separate board for this - so you might be able to get more information there.

As for Isabella's birth, since it is after 1865, it falls after statutory registration was introduced, so there should be a birth certificate for it. Birth certificates can be searched for on the site www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk, which is a pay-per-view site. £6 (sterling) will buy you 30 credits. It costs one credit to view a page of search results and 5 credits to view an image of the entry in the register, which will give you the names & occupations of parents, and where they lived. It may also give you the date and place of the parents' marriage.

Given that MacDonald is a very common name in Scotland, I would advise trying to narrow down your search as much as possible before using up your credits on the site as it can get expensive if you look at too many wrong certificates (from bitter experience!).

The site also lets you view the 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census information, so if you can find the family on the 1871 census, you will be able to find out the details of Isabella's siblings. The caveats about searching apply to the census as well.

Good luck with the search.

Cheers,
Clare
