MacKay.Caithness/Canada
« on: Sunday 11 June 06 14:05 BST (UK) »

Looking for information on Jane MacKay  b.1877 parents Hugh & Rosina MacKay.

She married a George Moffat  (plumber)- lived in Dumfries, had a daughter Rose b. 1904 Dumfries.

Need to find out when they emigrated to Canada - they were there in 1922.-died 1953

Yes, I have details on Hugh and Rosina's marriage. Thanks.

Found their daughter's marriage and first born, on Scotlands people.

Unfortunately cannot find any other children. Scotlands people stop at 1905.

However, I would like to find out Hugh and Rosina's death details.

From the free searches on Scotlands People, there is a death of a Rosina MacKay, other name MacLean in 1936, with a birth year of 1852. This entry appears in Ross & Cromarty. You would have to view to confirm that this is the right one, but it is the only entry showing with a birth year 1850 +/- 10 yrs.

This was Rosina. Also found her husband, Hugh MacKay. Thank you very much for your help,made my search much easier.

One more question and, hopefully you can assist.

Where can I find out when they went to America/Canada. They were still in Dumfries in June 1907 but in Canada 1922.

Perhaps I'll never find out, the same way I am having difficulty finding whether they had anymore children here, before going to Canada.

The only info I have is, in 1922, it is said they emigrated  with his family,some years ago.

Regards

Margaret

Why don't you post two separate messages in the Emigrants to US/Canada here on RootsChat, see this link www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/board,136.0.html
Hopefully someone will have access to more relevant emigration records.

I'll have a quick look now at the Ellis Island site for New York arrivals.
