This poem or song,while a tad more complicated than was the case of Emily May (PETERS)MCDONALD, relates a similar situation. Emily May was only 4 years old when her mother died and Jane Elizabeth MCDONALD cam to care for the children and kept house for the family. When Jane Elizabeth married Emily's father,Jan's younger brother, Herbert Lloyd (Bert) MCDONALD became Emil's step-uncle.
Bert was only 6 years older then Emily, and when Emily was in her teens fell in love.
Father George did not approve of the match, so Emily and Bert eloped, and went to live in South Australia, where they stayed for a number of years.
This of course brought up the interesting situation mentioned earlier.
As husband of her husband's sister, her father was also her brother-in-law. And as sister and brother-in-law to their father, Jane and George were the children's aunt and uncle, but as father and step-mother to their mother, Jane and George were their gandparents.
Whew what a complicated mess.
A further complication occurred when Emily may's aunt, her mother's younger sister, Madeline (Madge)TRELOAR, married another McDonald siblings, Alexander (Alec),older brother of her husband, and younger brother of her step mother. So her aunt was also her sister_in_law.

Just a little bit about myself I would like to share.
Since searching my family tree, it is interesting that I haven't come across anyone that has a disability, I know it wouldn't show up in the records, but talking to family not a trace of another disabled relative, so that proves I am unique.
I was born with a disability called Arthrogryposis (Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita) is a term describing the presence of a muscle disorder that causes multiple joint contractures at birth. A contracture is a limitation in the range of motion of a joint. I used to walk on elbow crutches and these days I use an electric wheelchair to get around.
I have 6 siblings and I am smack right in the middle, 3 sisters older and 2 sisters and a brother younger. I was blessed to come from a large family as I was not spoilt, in fact I had to do chores around the house like my other siblings, because of that reason, I am a stronger person.
It hasn't stopped me, I am married, have children and a grandparent and loving begin a Nanna
"Everyone has a disability just mind stands out"
I am a keen knitted, go swimming, play Bocce, love my computer and searching my family tree, and am on a few committees, all volunteering work.
My motto "there is not such word as can't"
In doing my family tree but cousin only recently found out she was adopted which is not all that different and I know how to add an adoption in my Family tree marker, but her birth name is completely different, how can I connect the both as begin the same person
The program I am using is Family Tree Maker Version 16
any help would be fantastic
I have started doing my mother's side of the tree, she was a BALDOCK and growing up she always told me she had English and French blood in her,
both her parents were born in England and was sorry I didn't find out about more of her family history.
But have managed to go back as far to 1869 when Florence ORMA was born my grandfather was William George BALDOCK and married her.
I don't know who even William George BALDOCK's parents were, as all the records would be in England and haven't a clue were to look.
I do know Florence May Martha ORMA parents were John ORMA but don't have any details and his wife was Esther but no maiden name and I would say they had more children but only have Florence listed
I don't mind doing the research myself but just don't know were to look for overseas records
Just going through a lot of old photos of my Dad and thought someone on this group might not have the photo of a relative that is in the photo with my Dad.
Dad (Leonard Albert GOLDING) He is the one that's circled if anyone recognizes the other army buddy would like to here from you
