    The man I seek was definitely born June 1936 in Scullomie, Tongue. His birth is in the OPR and he's with his family, I think 1841, 1851 and 1861 tho' I don't have my family file to hand. In 1863 he applied to the Kirk Session for a character reference for emigration to New Zealand, and thereafter he vanished from Scottish census. Then sometime in late 20century people from New Zealand made contact with family still in Tongue, supposedly Robert Sutherland's descendants. But sadly contact was lost again.

    New Zealand death certificates have a lot of information on them - length of time in NZ, if not born there; place of birth; names of parents and spouse; ages (not names) of children. The information is only as good as that provided by the informant, of course, but it is pretty comprehensive!
