There is an anc tree for a Robina McTavish born 1899 - 1969 Yorkton Saskatchewan which claims she married Malcolm Macdonald and had 3 children -  :-\

The Canada Ocean arrivals forms 30A seem to link the Anderson and Macdonald couple.
Then there is a 1916 census with the couple and the son Linton  :-\ strange.

Mr Robina McDonald (should be Mrs Robins McDonald) abt 1900 Birth Place Garmouth, Scotland
Age 20
Date of Arrival Jun 1920 Port of Arrival Quebec - Port of Departure Glasgow, Scotland
Ship Name Sicilian
It does say she had not been in Canada previously. Going to join husband to reside in Robin Manitoba Canada.

I found another possible couple on the 1921 census - Marquette Manitoba.  This would look more realistic if they had just married - no children yet.

Malcolm McDonald   24 born Saskatchewan. Farmer. Own Account.
Renlena McDonald   21 born Scotland. Imm 1920.

This could be a possible - Robina McDonald - Birth Year abt 1900 - 4 June 1984  Nanaimo
Death Age 84 - mothers name might not be correct  :-\
Grand-daughter was the informant.

Perhaps the granddaughter (the informant) -

Wow! You've been very busy.

Yes, the ones going to Robin/Roblin are the ones I am looking for. So my hunch that they all emigrated to Canada seems to have been right. It all fits together - Robina first with her husband, then some of her siblings, then her mother and the rest of the siblings.

I shall enjoy going through all that wealth of information :)

Thank you very much indeed.
