The families I'm trying to research are those of my parents.The family names are McKay and Sproul.McKay is of Scottish descent and Sproul is of Irish descent.Both families settled in Canada and ended up in Saskatchewan.
On the McKay side I got as far as my great-grandfather,John McKay born in Nova Scotia September 30,1837.His wifes name was Christina McKay.McKay was her maiden name also,whether they were related or not is unknown to me.She was born March 23,1854 in Woodstock,Ontario.This is the same information I started with.Searching the net I have been unable to locate these two individuals.
On the Sproul side I have had the same success with a little less information.I got as far as my great-grandfather,Benjamin Sproul born in 1870 in Ireland.The only information I have on his wife is,her name was Nelly and she was born in England.This again is the same information I started with.
Any help on these two lines would be greatly appreciated.I have had great success researching my maternal grandmothers family and have accumulated a substantial amount of information dating back to The Mayflower and beyond.I have a great deal of information on Plymouth,Massachusetts families that is growing almost daily.It is all unverified information I got off the net,but the websites where I got the information usually supplied sources and seemed reliable.I would be more than willing to share this information and any corrections to my information would be greatly appreciated.
