Question by highland1dreamer

who her parents are. Also they had 4 children James (my grandfather born 1888 in Perth); Isabella born 1890 - there is no further info - does not show up in later census etc - probably died as baby but do not know why and when; brother William born around 1892 probably Glasgow but no idea when he passed away or where and if he ever married. Do know he served in armed forces in first world war as I have a family picture taken in Scotland around 1915. The daughter was Williamina (Ina) and have found out quite a bit about her (married a MacPherson).Anyone can help about this part of family where buried and died etc. greatly appreciated. James McLuskie died Vancouver BC Canada 1972.

Thank you for your help I have only used Scotland's People when they have free specials as I am on disability cannot afford all the sites Ancestry costing me too much now. Use Family Search which is free but they do not have everything there either. The kindness of strangers has helped me in other family questions but stuck on when my great grandparents died and two of the children William and baby Isabella.
