I am not sure if you looked at the entry if you would see if he had been married twice though. I don't think they listed s...

Re: Marriage of foreign national couple in Scotland

When searching for one of my friend's Lithuanian family it proved really quite difficult as each certificate had a totally different spelling of their names as obviously it was just written by the Registrar how it sounded to them :( That was my thought.

Re: Annie Hodge married to Edmond Overend (Overn or Nerend)
