Hi Neil
Thank you for your reply.
Yes this is the Donald I meant, I am the great granddaughter of  Donald & Georgina, I have looked for their  parents for years, do you have proof that these are really their parents?
I have seen a few post from hazel, I believe her & my dad are full cousins.
Where do you live?

Digging around in Ancestry, it looks like Donald's parents (Donald and Margaret that is) could be James Stewart and Margaret Whyte. Also Margaret's parents could be another James Stewart and Mary Stewart.
Do be wary of believing anything on A******y. See http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=714261.0

Good, but you can probably omit the second stage.

Hi Dottie and everyone else out there.

I'm in Aberdeen by the way Dottie.

Donald and Margaret Stewart are definitely the names of your Donald's parents.
Over the years it looks like they sometimes went by (or were recorded as)  Stuart not Stewart.

Your Donald was baptised in Strichen in 1874 (as was my grandfather James in 1871)
Parents recorded as Donald and Margaret Stewart in 1874 - Stuart in 1871 (no image in Scotlands People but recorded there)
Their birth certificates record them both as illegitimate (Stewart) but the baptisms show Donald as the father.

also there is a record here stating they are Donald's parents
http://libindx.moray.gov.uk/people/people_report_view.asp?REF_ID=NM274891

There is a census in 1881 in Rathen (Cairnbulg Links), Aberdeenshire showing what looks like the family, albeit the ages and birthplaces look a little mixed up.

On James wedding certificate (1902) it states that parents as deceased

There is  no sign of the parents on 1891 or 1901 census. 1891 census both James and Donald have parted ways.

I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think from research that
Margaret died in Fraserburgh 1881
Donald died in Rhynie 1883 after marrying again
I have a copy of both these of these death certificates with their parents names too.

Please correct me if wrong on any of this as I'd really like to know for sure myself.

Best Regards
Neil

That information comes from an application to the Keith Parochial Board in 1915. I think the originals of these records are held by Aberdeen City Archives and there are microfilms in Elgin Library. The record will contain quite a lot of information about Donald and Georgina's family and their situation - the Keith PB records are very detailed. Probably worth taking a look at it.

Hi Folks

Update for you.

I eventually found that my grandfather James Stewart died in 1946 in Monikie, Fife.
28/12/46.

Strangely enough I recognised my fathers signature on the death certificate I got from Scotland People, and it hadn't changed from him being a young man of 24 in 1946 to his dying day.

All the best
Neil Stewart

I am a bit late to the party. But I am researching the same line...specifically Ebenezer Hay McMillan. I wondered, for those of you related, do you know if there is any Gypsy ancestry? Just trying to explain the dark skin and thick black hair trait which I think is traditionally associated with Gypsies and not the Scottish/Highland Traveller groups...?
