I just found a marriage record for my Alex McDonald and Mary McIntosh.
They married 1801 in Ardclach,Nairn,Scotland.
My William McDonald was born in Nova Scotia, Canada but I haven't been able to find a birth record. On his 2nd marriage record it lists his parents as being Alex McDonald and Mary McIntosh. Thats how I have ultimately linked the 2. William was born 1809.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If this is indeed the same family then there should be immigration records supporting the 2. I haven't been able to find residence census's for the family in Nova Scotia but and old family bible states that Alexander died 1866.
