Hi, thanks all you replies guys! However I already have most of this information. I am mainly looking for relatives of William, and was hoping in a stroke of luck some descendants of his might be on this site. From a 1891 Census search when he was six years old, I noticed he seems to be an only child of William McLeod and Janet Pollock. It may be possible that William Snr. was married before and had other children.

There is no instant way of us finding specific photographs unless we have an idea of the family, any back ground and where they lived in Canada.  It is a rather big Country.
Obviously we have to look at census, check newspapers etc.,  In future be very specific that you only require that information and no more.  Saves us wasting our time trying to help.

Well I should remind you that I didn't specifically ask you to look up the cemetery records etc. And in my original post I stated I was looking for descendants of William, so if anything you have wated your own time! Now if it's such a big issue with you I might suggest you not reply to my posts!

That's fine by me.  Have noticed you don't always acknowledge when relatives reply to your posts  ???

Quote -  I am basically wondering if anyone out there has any photographs of William and Jean and their life in Canada?

Well again to let you know the reason why I don't "apparently respond" is because I message the other relative on private message and then further correspondence via email etc. Not that is any of you concern of course!

Scotlands People show his birth as 1885 registered Govan

Was he previously married as he would have been 46 when he married Jean in 1931

Notice you got no reply to this question CaroleW.  Was waiting to see if there was a reply before I posted the info on William's first marriage but it seems the poster must have also had this information already.

I was referring to William's father William snr perhaps being married before marrying Janet. Look I think we maybe got off on the wrong foot, I just didn't really care for your tone earlier "wasting our time" comment.
