Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Removal of Frame Mark
« on: Friday 09 July 10 08:10 BST (UK)  »
Hi Restorers,

I wonder if you can remove the mark where the frame has been, and get rid of the spots, also, do any of you see a ring around the gentlemans eye? I can't tell if this is just a shadow.
I hope the size is okay, its a scanned copy that i have had for years, I guessed it was about 1880, but I am not too sure.

Many thanks

Sandy, I also noticed this, I have a few OPR'S from Benholm, where the clerk has made mistakes too.
I have a Margaret Robert, and she is listed as Helen on a few of her children's OPR births, with no other mention on census etc, of the name Helen, so I was not sure if the mistake lay with the Parish clerk or the registrar when it came to the Mackie/ Mackay surname.
I guess spelling was not important in those days and things were left as they were.

Yes I think we have been in touch before, I am still hunting for them too!!

I even followed a Duncan Bain b. 1812 ( Mary sibling) through all the census, only to find it wasnt him ::) I dont know why we cant find these families, I even thought they might have immigrated, but found nothing, ah well.. someday!!!

Hi Sandy,

My gt grandparents were, David Stephen b. 1873 Johnshaven married Ann Gordon Mackie b. 1875 daughter of Robert C B Mackie and Elizabeth McArthur, Johnshaven.

Roberts full name was Robert Carnegie Black Mackie.

I had only got as far as Alexander Mackie married Elspeth Clark, so this is very interesting.

I am interested, as  Alexander Forsyth and Elizabeth Graham are part of my tree also.
Did you find them in 1841?, as I have tried for a few years now and have not managed yet.

I dont know if I have spoken to you before or not, but John Forsyth and Mary Bain are also my line.

Hi Lisa and Susan,

Thank you both for your help, I thought the address might be his employers, he must have had a career change as he had been a farm worker for many years, I will have a look at the co-op refinery history, and might get some more clues.

Thanks again

I have found my gt uncle in 1955, but I am still not sure if this is his address behind his name or not, I have not used a directory before, and hope someone can help, the entry reads:

Scott David J R (Dorothy) emp Consumers Co-op refy h 2137 Queen.

I am trying to find out how long he had been in Regina, and where he lived.

Hi Sandy

I see we are researching the same Mackie family, my gtgt grandfather was Robert C B Mackie, I was very confused at the start of my Mackie research with the different spellings.
Have you managed to get any firther back with this Mackie line?
