Please don't take this wrong, but maybe your mother has a reason for not giving information. You should respect her wishes and wait until she is ready to give you a answer.

In other words, you may not be ready for the answer she has for you. Maybe she is waiting for you to be old enough to understand why she is holding back the information.

Hi  you seem to have the wrong link to the profile you are refering to if the profile you are asking about was born 1941 and the link is for a profile born 1500,s ,for living profiles we dont ask questions in the G2G because of privacy reasons maybe you can do a on line search in Birth ,Death Marriages or ask other relatives there are ways to find out information I can understand you wanting to find out about your Mothers past i really do hope you find the answer's you are looking forTerry

I don't see shouldn't give general guidance since this is British and we have no laws of privacy.

for example, google search both names. Also try scotlandspeople.

Janet Gibson married David Tweedie Conroy in the Provan district of Glasgow in 1944. You will be able to get a copy of the extract of the marriage register from the Registrars Office in Glasgow or by ordering it online from The extract will cost £12. The extract should show the parents of both parties (if known), whether deceased at the time. It will also give information on the witnesses to the marrige and addresses.

I hope this helps and you find out more about your family
