Sure, start a new post, and add Montreal in the title. You can then ask the moderator to delete
your original post.

You can also create another post for Margaret and Elizabeth. They might as well be in one post
as they are sisters. Running three posts should keep your busy. ;D

Excellent.... about the photos of Mary.

Hi Keelan,

Your McKenzie's are interesting, fishermen and yet they come to the middle of Northern Canada.
Having those photos are...priceless.

You may wish to consider having your post for Annabelle and family moved to a new topic.
That way your Eastern McKenzie's don't get lost in the fray of your Western McKenzie's.
Click on report to moderator, (bottom right) and ask them to move it to a new topic.

The Prince George Citizen newspaper has some limited coverage online. In 1985/1998 and
2000 there are photos of a Mary Howden. It's hard to say if she is yours, but as far as I can
see on voters lists, there is only one "Howden" listed in Prince George area.
