No, it's not letting me

I think each time you try to post an image, you need to give it a new title.

You can try asking scotlandspeople for help if you cannot read the image, or try a request for a new scan, which can end up fantastically better than the first one.  (I think I managed 4 or 5 requests in one evening when I encountered a particularly poor lot)

Thanks GG.  ;)

Looks like Susan McMorrow MS Somers?
Address: 33 Muirhead Street.

I agree with Pat. I think scan this is borderline (with some unreadable words) so you might like to ask for a better scan, even if only for your records so anyone looking at your documentation in the future will be able to easily read it.  :)

I thought the maiden surname was Somers but wasn't 100% certain.

Thanks guys, I have contacted Scotland's People to see if they can help, in the meantime I have discovered a lot more info but unfortunately it muddies everything rather than make it clearer  ::) I decided to try and find my Grandfathers birth certificate but because his d.o.b. is different on his marriage certificate, death register and merchant navy card it's proving pretty impossible  :(

His marriage certificate just says age 29 so born 1840/1841.  That's assuming he gave his correct age.

Grandfather or great-grandfather?
