    I am rather annoyed with myself. Years ago I know I found the marriage records of the marriage of George Sinclair and Catherine Bain. The worse part is that I have lost those records! And now I do not have the names of the fathers. I know the names were on those records!

    They were married 27 November 1835 Reay, Caithness, Scotland

    George Sinclair was born around 1810 in Caithness County, Scotland
    Catherine was born about 1817 in Caithness Scotland

    They were married after the birth of their first born. Catherine Sinclair Birth abt 1834 in Stempster farm, Caithness, Scotland

    I am really need the parents names from the marriage certificate that I know I saw. Thank you

    Hi, Sue.

    I have a Sinclair, too. The 1841 census is available on freecen. The best bet for Scottish BMD's is Scotland's People. You have to buy credits, but once you view the records, you can download the image and also go back and view them online any time.
    Hope that helps some.

    Oh! SNAP! Try FreeReg! They have the parish registers from Caithness around that time. I looked and there are multiple candidates for George. Since you have seen the records before, you can probably figure out which one... and it's FREE!

    I think I saw this one and have passed it by. By 1841 they had three daughters Catherine, Ann and Johan. They left for Prince Edward Island Canada in 1841

    HI! Let me add to this....a bit more info. I am trying to get the names for parents of Sinclair and Bain. They married 27 Nov 1835 in Reay, Caithness, Scotland
    Catherine was born 1836 and christened in Reay, Caithness, Scotland and was living in Stempster
    Ann was born 1838 and christened in Reay, Caithness, Scotland and they were still living in Stempster
    Johan was born in 1841 and christian in Reay, Caithness, Scotland but living in Baille....another large farm. Baille is further north of Stempster in Reay
    It is right after Johan is born they ship out to PEI Canada.
    There are so many George Sinclair's and Catherine Bain's
    Stempster is/was owned by Sinclair's but he was probably just working on it.
    Thank you for so much or your help
