Desmond Scott and Elizabeth Morrow
« on: October 05, 2020, 09:36:19 PM »
Trying to find out about Desmond Scott dob possibly 1922 belfast] but not a lot to go on. He married Elizabeth Arneil Morrow in belfast on 15th april 1944. He appears to have left the family after 1944 [birth of daughter Norma Elizabeth Scott]. Rumour is that he joined the merchant navy or went to canada. I am struggling with this one.

Hi richardanthony,
                             Would you know where in Belfast they lived also was it just him
                             that moved away ?
                             The 1943 directory has a D H Scott living 20 Loopland Gardens.
                             Nothing down for his or her work.
                             You would need to check the next few years up.

                             If he left his wife behind, her name might be in the books.
                             Have you tried rootschat on the Canada search ?

                              Good luck in your search,
                                                                         Billy.

Billy,
I was thinking on the same lines, re Street Directory but if you look at 1951 Directory for 20 Loopland Gdns the guy who lived there was a David H Scott.

Hi Bread Basket,
                          Good call for David H in 1951, was not much to go on.
                          Thought Desmond and Elizabeth’s middle name Arneil
                          was a good help.

                         Best regards,        Billy.
