Are either once of you searching for MacDonald's from Western PEI. I am
looking for my great grandfather's ( a macdonald) siblings and He was 6
years of age in 1901 living in lot 6 prince edward island. His name ws
George MacDonald and he Married an Acadian woman named Rosie. ( maybe a
Gallant). He had a Bother Alex who married a woman called Grace Gay also
from lot 6.
I'm not sure how I can help with the orignal poster and replyer. :( I just
started my family tree Jan 1 2005. I would really just want to share
information. BTW my great grandfather was a strong Roman Catholic and
insisted he was Scottish and not Irish.
please get back to me here if interested....
