Perhaps you need a library in Orkney?

John FLETT married Margaret Goudie 15 Mar 1827,                                                                         Stromness, Orkney, Scotland                                                         

There will only be a baptism for their daughter Margaret Harvey Flett, no birth certificate.

thank you so much for getting back to me,
so I was right about her parents, now to trace John Flett's parents is so hard from here, because there are so many John Flett's ,I don't know who belongs to who, I don't know if i'm getting too old for this or not. ha ha ha
I checked my Tree and I do have the 1851 census for my G G grandmother, thank you.

Just thinking is there someone I could get in touch with to trace these two links , Flett and Goudie for me over in Orkney?
You have been wonderful, thanks again,
regards Lynda.

Another thread?

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=406643.0


"1851
Johnstone's Close, off Main Street, Stromness - ED 2 Page 5

Sarah Gaudie, 70, bed ridden
Jacobina Gaudie, d, 30, house servant
Margaret Flett, d, 48
James G Flett, 15
Margt H Flett, 5

all b. Evie, Orkney"

All ready been covered? by Gadget

So Margaret Harvey Flett must have married (?) Joseph Deering between 1861 - 1868, where (?)

Maybe this should have been posted on the Orkney board?

You do realise there will not be a marriage certificate for Margaret Harvey Flett and Joseph Deering if they married in Scotland?

"Scotland did not allow civil marriages until 1939"

So the marriage would have taken place via a religious ceremony if in Orkney.
