I'm wondering if it might be a good ploy to put the link on the Shetland and Orkney boards as well?

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Thanks Bumble. So you need at least two grandparents from the Shetlands or Orkneys, and you can live anywhere in the world.

Hi all,
Anyone in this group with the surnames of Cecil, Gilbert, Harris, Word, Webb, Howells, Hyatt, Parry, Thomas, that have had their DNA tests completed please contact me thru this forum. I am part of the William Cecil - Lord Burghley DNA Project and we are looking to expand our pool of knowledge. Especially with a Norse background.

Cheers
jack Gee
