Hmm...that's odd. The links should work. They will take you to the FS site, but one has to sign-in - to view the records and images. The 1874 marriage banns and image is on there (see the link below the baptisms on the previous page):

The link works if I copy and paste into a browser!

Clicking the link on my phone wasn't doing it :)

Same here - click on the link in the Android app on the phone, and it leads to FS but to an error message.

Click on the link in a browser on my laptop, fine.

Enter Web view in the Android app on my phone, then click on the link, and it's fine.

Having looked again at the death notice of my great grandmother Ellen Sophia I see that my grandmother Doreen is listed as her child but then underneath she is also listed under the children of previous marriage section!

Having read the joint will of Malcolm and Ellen from 1923 it has next to Ellen's name 'Widow Raaf'

Could my grandmother then have been a child of Raaf? And when he died Ellen married Malcolm and my grandmother took his surname Johnston?

I cant find any birth/baptism for my grandmother either under Johnston or Raaf.

Or is this a red herring and my grandmothers name was written there accidentally?

Any answers would be appreciated!

Thank you.
