Hi Anna and Jane,
my father and his sister came from Scotland, Dundee.There are lots of Oram's in Scotland, and a fair few from down in the South of England.

Hi Dave, Thanks very much for that, I have quite a few ancestors from Scotland (Borders), one of my greatgrandmothers was born there but unfortunately no connection with my Oram's as yet.

Thanks again
