George Donald b. 1792 Banff Scotland
« on: Thursday 15 February 18 11:51 GMT (UK) »
looking for relations of George Donald b. 1792 and Ann Johnson - especially any who may be living in Scotland. I presume there children would have had families in Australia but looking for Scottish connections

"..... I presume there children would have had families in Australia"

What reason do you have for thinking this?

George and his wife Ann(Johnson) migrated to Australia in 1839 and it seems all their children went as well. One of their daughters Ann married a convict Henry Phipps in Australia which is the beginning of my line. I have a grand daughter working in Scotland at the moment and she is interested in her Scottish heritage
regards Jenny

Do you know the parents of George and Ann as this is precensus and registration the only records would be church ones

Also what were the names of their children in order of birth as this can sometimes give clues to their parents

If you go to  Scotlands People website and search for Donald deaths between 1855 and 1862 in Banff mothers surname Thomson without the p. 2 deaths records can be downloaded one for Alexander and the other Ann on these will tell you spouse if they married fathers name mothers name including maiden name and informant relationship to the deceased You then could possibly trace them through the census

Also there's a tree on Ancestry which has death dates for George and his siblings which 2 match the ones on Scotlands people
