I have searched the website and can't find a place to order your CD on-line. I am in Canada. My wife was born in Shapinsay, Orkney Islands and what a treat it would be to give her this CD. How can I purchase one?

[You could persuade the Stronsay Silver Darlings to set up a Paypal account so you can pay through that, and so they can also put their CDs on eBay. There was also talk about having a Silver Darlings page on the Stronsay Development Trust website, hosted by Orkneycommunities. - Steven]

Hope the names helped-I'll leave you to figure out the family history and who their parents and grandparents are! Maybe you can spot family resemblances!
