I am looking for the birth information of Archibald James Nisbet who was born 1897. Parents are James Nisbet and Christina Gardiner from Scotland.

I am also trying to find more info on Augustus William Hilary Preston  born 1883 and his wife Mary Helen Muller born 2 Jan 1892. I believe both were born in South Africa but Augustus of British parents

Thank you

Hello Betty

WOW I am impressed.  You were spot on.  This is the exact James Archibald Nisbet I am looking for. I have a copy of his wedding certificate to Ruby Redvers Miles now I would like to find his birth certificate.  I have had a suggestion to go to "ScotlandsPeople" - I shall try there.  Thank you.

For Scottish records, the best place is ScotlandsPeople.

You need to register for an account (FREE) & you can search their records for FREE. To view/download images of birth, death & marriage records. etc there is a very reasonable fee.
