Hi mgnv

Thank you so much for the information and the links. I didn't know it was possible to view the images. So that was a great tip and link as it's shown me how to view them, so thank you so much for that. The marriage link was extremely helpful as it's now shown me I was on the wrong family.

But it's not all doom because of ability to view marriage licenses it has enabled me to find the correct marriage for her sibling, which also gave me her middle name too and confirms her father's name and date of birth so I am over the moon.

Thank you so much. I will send you a pm incase you don't read this thread because it's been a while since I have managed to get back on the computer. But thank you once again. Your efforts and help have been more than worth it.

I'd like to wish you good luck in your own research,

Regards Lou

Thanks Adeline,

Just tried again on the site and still getting same response, so can't understand it.

I do wonder if it's something to do with where I live!

ooh bingo it's back working,

thanks again, Lou

I had the same response but then tried again and it worked.

As you will see there are no siblings.

Hi Adeline,

I've been trying on familysearch, but it keeps saying "unable to display due to technical difficulties please try again later" It's been 2 days, I've closed the browser and restarted several times but still says the same thing, so maybe its a regional error or something.

Thanks very much for hte info, I don't suppose you can see the image - thought the mother's name should read 'Harriet'. Plus are there any other siblings?

Thanks again Lou

Sorry, just noticed the link, that's brilliant, thanks so much - I can access the image from the link.

thanks again, good luck in your own research. Lou <3
