Looking for an original birth record for William LAING. His biography is in many places and refers to his birth as 20 July 1764 in Edinburgh to William LAING and Mary STRACHAN (sometimes referred to as STRAITON). I cannot find a reference to the original birth record on line. William and Mary's marriage shows up in Edinburgh 25 Sep 1763 in Scotland's People. I'd be grateful for any ideas. Thanks, Brian
