I am trying doing my geneology and trying to tract down relatives of my =
great Uncle Matthew Doherty.
(The surname should actually be spelt "Dougherty"). He came to Canada =
in the l886 as a British Home Child from Liverpool, England. He was =
born in l876. He was only ll years old when he came with a group of =
children to work on farms out west in Saskatchewan.
He married a Marie Roussin in 1918 and they had nine children who were =
born in Birsay, Laura and St. Brieux, Saskatchewan. Their names were =
John,Mary, Cecilia, Josephine, Francis, Thomas, James, Therese and =
Teresa Margaret Louise.
I am wondering if you could suggest how I might contact them if they =
were still alive?
I'd also like to know where I could get a history of these towns?
