If the property is undivided then it is ancestral in character wherein the surviving daughters have a share equal to the share of sons, which they can separate by filing a suit for partition in the civil court.

Hi, As per latest Supreme Court ruling if the property being an ancestral property and if the father died  on or before 09-09-2005 then daughters have no right to claim share in the ancestral property.
Second Condition: Though father alive,if there is any previous partition by way of registered partition deed then also  daughters have no right to claim share in the property.

Family tree without the details of who died when and whether the properties were partitioned at any time, whether the ladies were married before the amendment to hindu succession act, whether the fathers of the ladies were living  during the the year of effect of hindu succession amendment act, 2005; 
All the above details are missing to render any opinion.

1) you did not in your original query mention that father of ladies died before 2005 

2) if father died before 2005 as per SC judgment daughters would have no share in ancestral property 

3) entry in 7/12 extract is for revenue records for payment of property taxes . it does not mean legal  title to property

The marriage date of daughters has no nexus with their right to cull out their share. They should file a suit for partition,

Your question is devoid of details.
Who are those ladies you refer here?
How are you related to any one of the member of the family tree mentioned above? 
If ladies names appear in 7/12, who are those ladies?
Whose daughters are those ladies
Your questions and doubts can be cleared by a local lawyer to whom you can give the details along with relevant documents in person.
