Births, Marriages and Deaths - Today in the Glasgow Herald of 1851

Today's blog post is simply a list of the births, marriages and deaths recorded in the online archive of the Glasgow Herald newspaper, this day in 1851.

It is worth remembering that newspapers are a valuable source for genealogy and many are now available online - either freely over the internet (like this edition of the Herald) or via some subscription services (some local libraries and historical societies may subscribe - so do check before you take out a subscription yourself).
