Re the Glasgow meet (which I hope to make if I can escape from my 3 little ones 8) ) see this link www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,186195.0.html


In respect of George and Catherine. I assume that on James's marriage cert. who married in 1856, both parents showed as deceased?

Hi Monica & Joe,
Many thanks for all the info.
Monica - yes they are both shown as deceased in Evan/Ewen/Euan marriage in 1855.
Joe - interesting with name as not many about! Evan/Ewen/Euan married Ann McLennan in 1855 in Inverness.

Realise this is an old post but George Mackenzie and Catharine Mactavish are my ggg grandparents, i am descended from their son John who married Ann Bowie.  I have just started researching the Mackenzie side of the family and wonder what information you may have, as i am struggling to find a marriage for George and Catherine and who their parents are.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for delay in replying, computer problem! My father John Bowie McKenzie and Nan Russell were cousins and I remember going to Broom of Moy as a youngster to visit. My grandparents lived at Logiebuchany on the Darnaway estate.
Re George and Catherine I also have no info about them except from their family 8 in number. Also from John and Ann line. Could not find marriage or death for George and Catharine, strange but will try again. Have not looked for some time.
Best wishes, keep in touch.
