Duncan MacKenzie b 1932 Gairloch
« on: Sunday 12 May 19 12:21 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for the parents of Duncan Mackenzie .
Duncan was born in 29.2.1932 Gairloch  and died in Canada on 3.4.2018 he was a master builder in Vancouver ( I have been sent the clipping from the news paper of his obituary )from a relative found for me from rootschat so this is my reason for sending this today
he also had a brother who died in 1970 named Osgood
Osgood's birth certificate is on Scotlands people but before sending for it I thought someone on Rootschat could help me out
As I have a lot of my Mackenzie's from Gairloch in my tree already
I wanted to add who the parents might be of these two gentlemen

So named Osgood in tribute to the eccentric laird of that name?

Hi Elizabeth.

There is a well researched tree on Ancestry which gives his parents as Alexander Mackenzie and Jessie Mackenzie. They married on 3/6/1927 at Gairloch. They also mention Osgood and there are a number of family photographs attached.

Are you on Ancestry? If not please PM me and we can take it from there.

Hope this helps,

Elizabeth, this is a link to the Old Burial Ground at Gairloch.

www.gravestonephotos.com/public/namedetails.php?grave=266706&forenames=Jessie&surname=Mackenzie

There looks to be a stone for Jessie and Alexander. You can contact the site and request a photo of the stone.

Just working the dates out Norman must be an Uncle to Duncan as he was born 1891 and Duncan's parents were married 1927
Must check this again
Sorry
