Hi and Welcome to Rootscaht, Tanapopo  :)

You say who your grandmother  was  but don't mention who your grandfather was or give any approx ages. Was this your grandmother's maiden name or did she marrysomeone with that surname?

Following on from what Pam has found,  and taking it as a maiden name, the Scotlands People site  show  5 marriages of a person with that name  Scotland in 1904-1931:

1904 in Holm and Palplay, Orkney
1920  in St Giles, Edinburgh
1921  in Kirkwall, Orkney
1929  in Dunfermline, Fife
1931 in Leith North, Edinburgh


Also, to find if your mother had any brothers or sisters, we'd need to know the approx date and name. However, it's Rootschat's policy to not mention names of living people on the public boards.

Best regards

Hi again

If she is still alive, we can't really do much more on on this public thread. However, if her birth name is as stated and in Orkney, there are two possible births showing on the Scotlands People site in 1913 and 1929 -

www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk


None of the other names that you mentioned are listed in Orkney.

You should really try to obtain your mother's birth certificate and work back from that. I assume you know her approximate age/place of birth.

Because of the involvement of living people's names, I've sent you a personal message. I might have found a possible grandmother, b. Stromness, Orkney.
