Blackbutt is both an Eucalyptus tree species and a town in Queensland.

Jamjar...I was meaning no Scottish connection  ;D

Sometimes theories like mine do work but sadly not this time  :-[

Yes Annie, I know. I just thought you may be interested in what the connection may have been.  :)

I have received an email asking me to consider adding to this thread.  I had turned off notifications after my reply (#130) and without being aware of an addendum to reply # 128, which apparently has since been further edited removing the addendum that may have referred to myself and my elderly relatives.   

I will continue to leave the notifications turned off.  Hereís the live links to lpiís guides re land title searchings.  These should be of benefit to anyone marrying up NSW BDM information, NSW Supreme Court Probate files, and  NSW LPI historic Parish Maps and NSW LPI Land Title deeds and NSW Geographical Names Registers.

I have started a new topic giving live links to these valuable guides from the lpi.   I am sure thereís many an RChatter who remembers the haphazard way family history buffs were given access to the Reg Gen records in earlier times. 

Also Re Stonefield and Bon Accord and Scottish connections  etc...  err ... Aberdeen NSW is one of the nearby townships to those properties ....  :)

Hi everyone.

Thank you all for your help thus far, you are all very kind for spending your time on my quest :)
Study has basically finished so I'm more or less back on the family history bandwagon.
I haven't had many new advances with the McDonald search after the receival of Finlay's death certificate but will work my way through your replies and all the links and advice you've given me.
I cannot thank you all enough!
