I have been researching my husband's family, and his McKaigs identify as having been born in Ireland, but are listed on the 1851, 61, 71, 81, 91 Dundee census. I can't seem to find an irish connection for them,
John McKaig, b. 1829 Ireland, wife Mary Gibson, b. 1829 Ireland. Their son John McKaig, b. 1857, Ireland, wife Ann Masson, b. 1859 Montrose, Scotland.
Many McKaigs, living in very close proximity, also identify as having been born in Ireland, but specifically in County Cavan. I have a hunch mine are related, as all given family names seem to reappear further down the line...
ANY help would be much appreciated!
