in Genealogy Help by
I assume that John is the first name of Agnes' husband. So, the  last name is needed.

In addition to John's last name, is Agnes Baxter Wood Leslie the full name given to Agnes when she was an infant?

Thank you.

Have you looked in Scotland's People?

It's a pay site and I don't have an active subscription to help you.

Hi Rosemary,

Scotland's People is free to search, you only have to pay when you want to view the results. The following result to find the marriage certificate cost me 1 credit for example. I found it by using just the forenames and the marriage area and the year.

Hope this result helps you anonymous.

All the best

Yes - I just haven't activated my subscription for a while.

Thanks Billy.

Hi anonymous,

Here are the details of their marriage. I found the record of their marriage certificate by searching on Scotland's people (http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/), using just their forenames and the year of their marriage and the district which is Kincardine (Stonehaven is in the Kincardine district). You can order a copy of their certificate directly from Scotland's People.

The costs involved in ordering and downloading certificates can be found in the help section of the site.

All the best

Billy
