I am trying to find information on 2 sisters, Isabella and Marion Moir. They married brothers. Thomas Nicol and Robert Mackenzie/McKenzie possibly about 1900 in Scotland. Anything would help.

Hi Deborah

Do you have their approx dates of birth and where is scotland they came from.

With the name Moir you need to watch for a few variations in their name on census, birth certs etc as Moir changed a lot ..ie. muir, moore....I found this out as I have Moir/muirs etc in my tree...mine came from Fife.

The brothers surname was Mackenzie/McKenzie. The girls surname was Moir. I think they were all born in Glasgow. Thomas middle name was Nicol after his grandmothers' maiden name. Robert was born in 1888 and Thomas in 1889. I would guess the girls were about the same age.
