First, understand you're away for a bit. Second, MI means Memorial Inscription(s). While I don't have them, many genie researchers have or can access books of Memorial Inscriptions for cemeteries throughout Scotland (and elsewhere, I presume). Some other (kindly) researcher gave me data on Cuthberts in the Dundee cemeteries several years back and I spent time trying to piece my lineage from some of these. Third, I was trying to see if the Betsy Cuthbert who married William Keay was part of my lineage but given her age of 71 at death in 1890, it does not match up with the one in my family who was born in Perth in 1827 to John Cuthbert and Ann Taylor. Consequently, I don't think we have a link. My Cuthberts were coachbuilders, first in Perth and then Dundee from 1820s to 1880s. Have you gotten a death certificate for Betsy or William? That would indicate parents and may help settle this once and for all. Have you checked out ScotlandsPeople.gov.uk? Though you pay GBP6 access, you can get digital images of births, deaths, marriages and census entries for 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901. You might give it a try. All the best.
