Dougald & Harriet M MacGillivray
« on: Wednesday 02 December 15 16:40 GMT (UK) »
I have an emigration record of Dougald MacGillivray, Banker, aged 64, and Harriet M MacGillivray, housewife aged 54, sailing on the 'Republic' (United States Lines) from Southampton to New York on Mar 11, 1927.  They are recorded as passing through Ellis Island.  However, the passenger manifest shows them as stating their intended destination and future residence as Canada. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to find out where they eventually ended up and, more importantly, place of birth of Harriet.  Pretty please! (I don't have world-wide access to Ancestry any more).

Thanks in eager anticipation.

There is  a record showing Harriet M Macgillivray birth year 1871 arriving in Halifax Canada 4th June 1934 on  the record it gives her husband as a Mr D Macgillivray 121 Coburg Road, Halifax N.S could this be her?

P.S there also seems to be another record where she is with a son Douglas and daughter Janie on another record where she is with her husband its states she was Born Hamilton, Bermuda?

Wow, that was quick, Lisa!  Yup, that sounds like her.  I can now try and see if she is 'my' Harriet M. Macgillivray - and if it is, there is another connection to Canada, through the HBC and a marriage "according to the custom of the country".  Watch this space - and many thanks!

Good morning Lydia,

There might be ax-border document going from USA to Canada for your ancestors on Ancestry. There has been a lot of x-border crossing both ways through history and both Canada and USA are large places so it is hard to say where they actually ended up. There are a few places where they may have crossed the USA-Canada border as well.

Unfortunately the 1931 Canadian census has not been released yet. However, the USA censuses are released up to 1940 so if your ancestors happened to have stayed in the States you may be able to locate them in the 1930 or 1940 US census(es).

In terms of Canada, if you can determine where they settled via the border crossing dox, the pair may be found in the voter's list, telephone directories, cemetery records, property documents, etc..

Hope this helps you,
