For comparison Chrissy Macdermid & May.

Could they be same family.

Chrissy was 14 when she emigrated with.her brother abd sister.to america she was an umbrella maker in 1921

So I think it.must be a photo from.USA to brother
 Tommy our grandfather


The photo actually.said Chrissy.and.MAY Macdermid on.back in my aunts handwriting

There is no sister.May.Macdermid

MARY. blain.STEVENSON was grandads wife
 we.dont.think its her but there is a family.ressemblance

Again.date of photo.might.help .theories please
Meanwhile I.ll be trawling.thru names and ages of all aunts and cousins .it

I would say they are both 1920s, I don't see a strong resemblance between the girl in the top photo to the other two girls. The girl in the first photo is unmarried as there is no evidence of  a ring.
Could May have been either a middle name or a shortening of another name Mable or similar?
Are the backs postcards?

There are no other possible names for siblings  I think it could be our Mary the sister in law .but could Chrissy be only 14 ?

From memory
Mary Blain macdermd nee Stevenson b1907 shettleston

Christine ..kyle.. Kelly nee Stevenson
B 1906
Cambuslang Lanarkshire

Trees on ancestry with Mary Blain stevenson.m Thomas Allen macdermid
Son Eric ..b 1930
Are all family members

There are photos on profiles and in gallery of Chrissy and sis Agnes but none of the other sister Jeannie


There are ship records I have departure 1922 but note also says Christina residence Glasgow 1923

Eye strain can't view
(Will check tree and modify when can get on bigger screen))tere are other pics of Chrissy and there are pics of grandparents wedding

So the clothes etc are right for photos pre departure 1923

Yes I would say so, the two girls only look to be in their early teens.

Thanks who may I ask is Winnie Ruth Judd

Yes now I think it's my grandma Mary who was a macdermid by marriage  with Chrissy

Did the back of photo not post ...?
Oh dear where are the family reinforcements

Pictures of the STEVENSON girls would help
Looking forward to seeing more contents of the tin

And lining up photos of Chrissy
Her son died when the grandson was born .great grandson DNA match to aunt new nothing of this generation and had no photos
So will be pleased to see more
