Name: John Johnston
Estimated Age: 31
Birth Date: 28 May 1820
Birth Place: Stramneds, Orkney
Issue Date: 19 May 1851

Re: Merchant Seamen's Ticket

Looking at the birth dates just about one year out, could be an error..

Re: Merchant Seamen's Ticket



Thanks Geoff.

I'll take the Arbroath one thanks.

Trees don't help. Most have his parents as John & Agnes which is not right.

George & Jane/Jean ALLAN.

Dave
