Wondered if anyone had info that matches with this?
I have a marriage cert dated 1889 between John Halley and Helen Fleming who married in Redgorton in Perth.
I have been totally unable to find any records of their births around 1862-64 nor any record of each of their parents. Its like they beamed in from space. The 1901 census lists John as born in the Glenfarg area. I can't make out Helens birthplace. The 1891 census rather unhelpfully lists them as both being born in Edinburgh ( looks like the registrar was lazy about filling it in as they ditto'd most of the page!)
John's Parents are listed as John ( deceased) and Mary ( m/s Ronaldson). Helens Parents are James and Helen Fleming ( deceased) m/s Simpson.
If any of this tallies with anyone elses research please shout 'cos I am stuck!
