Family from Scotland?
« on: Tuesday 11 February 14 15:47 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help me identify this family please?  I have no idea who they are but this photograph was in with some of our family photos,family names being Morgan & Reynolds and John Reynolds originated from Old Machar. Aberdeen..  The name on the back of the photo - which I believe to be the photography studio - is Ledingham, Rosemount, Aberdeen.  Many thanks.

Hi!, as not a yet casual member of the community all I can offer is ask your family about these photos and if you can't do that look at marriage records, birth certificates etc, I hope I helped.

As we dont know where the poster is, it would be hard for them to look up the records themselves.

Hi Wendyellen

There is only one Morgan and Reynolds marriage showing between 1855-1920 in Scotland. This was in Aberdeen as it happens. But not a John Reynolds rather a Thomas Will A Reynolds (as indexed) and a Margaret Morgan who married in 1901 in Aberdeen (St Nicholas).

More info would be good for people to try to help you further now....

This Reynolds family showing in 1901 on the census ( :-\ but no John, who I thought might connect as a sibling to Thomas Snr or Jnr perhaps). Everyone born in Aberdeen unless showing:

Thomas Reynolds 40 Marine Engineer b. England
Adelaide Reynolds 40 b. England
Thomas Reynolds 19 Marine Worker b. England
Rosina Reynolds 13
Lizzie Reynolds 9
William Reynolds 5
Robert Reynolds 7
Ethel Reynolds 4
Henry Reynolds 10 Months

Address: 3 Williams Sq, St Nicholas Aberdeen
