I am conducting a search for ancestors of my mother's maiden name, Basketter. My grandparents both died several years ago and we have no records. I have found a record of a Jane Basketter born in Stromness, Orkney Islands in 1859, to Jane Ross and William Basketter. Ross is a name passed down through our family - my uncle's middle name - and I am hoping that this is why.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to trace this any further?
