Very many thanks.  You have found the correct folk. I am drawing up a tree for another branch of her family and it was fairly certain that she had gone to Canada.  When one piece of family information is proven it gives confidence that others will also prove correct.  Again my sincere thanks for your information and your interest.  isk

Our problem is that there is no BMD indexes as such in Canada which makes searching more difficult.
Privacy regulations are quite strict.

Hello Sandra. I quite understand how strict things are regarding possible living folk and I am really pleased to have the information that both Rosie 17 and yourself have been able to give me.  At some point Mary must have travelled back to Scotland as I believe his journey in 1959 was for the birth of a child. I hope this does not infringe the rules.  Thanks again isk

Nothing is turning up for a John and Mary Rennie except there is a memorial for both names but I cannot find an obituary to prove dates of birth or who exactly they are.  Will post just in case someone else can count or discount this couple  ???

Hi, I am descendant of a brother of this couple, and as far as I know Mary is still alive in Canada.  Her name has changed.  Isk, I would be delighted to chat more with you--it seems like we might be related?
