Hello,I'm looking for any trace of some of my FLETCHER relatives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Alexander FLETCHER & Elizabeth FREW married in Glasgow, Scotland around 1880. It was thought that they immigrated to Kansas, USA and had a family there, and after Elizabeth died Alexander took their children back to Scotland. Later on, the family headed to New Zealand and some to Australia. A fellow FLETCHER researcher just uncovered an Australian army enlistment paper for a (presumed) son of Alexander…See More

Thanks for your quick reply. I know no more than this. Very bare info. I know, but this comes from my son's 20 year old friend via her mother. They have never taken a stab at family tree before, so I'm just throwing what they have…"
Hello,I'm trying to find lost cousins for a female friend of my son. She would love to know why she's a redhead and has heard it comes from this lost side.I don't know a lot, but maybe someone has some further hints for me! Her grandmother was G. MACK (still living, so won't use first name) born 1947, Toronto to John Edward MACK and Marcia Elizabeth TEMPLETON. I understand that John Edward MACK's mother was Dutch, possibly Jewish, with the unusual surname of VON KOVENHOVEN. Somewhere in there…See More
Yes it's a puzzle. Has stumped me for years. You see this was (and still is) an unsavoury topic of discussion in my family, but I'm determined to learn more about her life and find her grave and put flowers there. The first baby…"
Very generous of you to offer this help ... looks like you've had plenty of takers! My task is probably impossible, but I figure I have nothing to lose by asking. My great grandmother is missing.

Thanks very much! The first William HARRIS (the 1886 death) and the third William HARRIS (the 1874 marriage) that you gave me are both the same man - my husband's great grandfather. The second fellow, the one in St. Catharines, is a…"

I got started researching my family history ......
I was raised on it! My Dad has always worked on his family tree, now I'm addicted too.
I have been doing genealogy since ....
We all have them - my biggest brick wall is .......
My great grandmother Eliza MCGREGOR b. 1887, Argyll Scotland. Married Angus MCARTHUR in Greenock, Scotland in 1912. They moved to Canada, had a daughter Margaret MCARTHUR and then separated. Angus returned to Scotland, divorced Eliza and remarried. Eliza must have remarried to as I can find no trace of her in Canada, no death, no burial. Supposedly she was in the Ottawa area and lived to be around 90. UPDATE: Great grandma found Feb. 14th, 2013! All of the above turned out to be true. Eliza remarried to Allen DILLON in 1917, Ottawa. Her daughter, Margaret MCARTHUR, married George LAJEUNESSE in 1936 and died in child birth the following year. Looking for George's descendants in Ottawa area now.
By joining Looking 4 Kin I hope to .....
