Question by teetee195

I am looking to build my family tree. I know my family (McFarlane) came from Ireland when the Potatoe Famine was going on some migrated to Toronto and some to Manitoba I believe.

If you are related to these McFarlane's or know of them please get back to me.

Thank you

There could have been many of the same name, location and reason. Do you have any dates? Birth or death? Would this be grandparents? Do you know other family members? {George McFarlane, Herald, Shirley, Cam?} Of this family you are searching for, do you know if you need a male or female member? In other words, are you look ing for your grandmother _____McFarlane. She married _______Someone in 1897. It's helpful that you know they came to Toronto and Manitoba. Good place to start.
If you have TWO different names, we can look for a couple..husband and wife. If you have any of their children's name??!!! Awesome help!
See where we're going here? Ya need just a bit more to find more, otherwise, go to a family member a little closer to you year wise and fine more on them.
Like:[ My dad George McFarlane..hummmmm, didn't he say he had a sister Sarah? Yeah, he said she married a store owner named Peabody. Google her, maybe more info will come up. These people are just made up, but.....Ya just have to keep trying!

father Kenneth Robert McFarlane, born Dec. 31, 1944 in Toronto Ontario, died Feb. 9, 2009 in Haliburton, Ontario.

mother Darlene Ellen McFarlane (nee Sjoblom) born Aug 17, 1948 in Toronto On died April 20th, 1997 in Scarborough On

--> They had 3 children Patricia Mae McFarlane (b 12/19/67), Bradley Gerald McFarlane (b 08/05/70), Jason Robert McFarlane (b 12/03/1975)

My grandfather Gerald Ralph McFarlane, Brother Nelles Vrooman McFarlane, born Jan. 10, 1913 in Lennox, his sister Gladys', born May 19, 1909 in Lennox and Addington, with their father being George McFarlane and mother Ada May (Mayhew) Arnold. I found their marriage record, August 14, 1907 in Carleton, Ontario, the second wife being Delma Close that he married Nov. 25, 1925.

My great-grandfather, William McFarlane, born Jan. 8, 1831 in Ireland, died 1923. his wife's name as Margaret Jane Busby, born 1840, died 1925. I found this family in the 1891 census in Lennox with their son George (born in 1880 in Ontario.

Then I found William in the 1851 census in Grey Co. Ontario, living with his father George, born 1796 in Ireland and wife Ann, born 1809 in Ireland. They seem to have come to Canada around 1840 (around the potatoe famine in Ireland), and they are members of the Church of England.
