Ballaggan (modern spelling) is the first house just inside the parish boundary.
I think they're living at Brackley (modern spelling), 1km to SE.

Lookup up 280300,852200 (all 13 characters) at http://www.streetmap.co.uk/ or at http://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html (pick 1874 1:2500 at latter, and zoom out to level 3 at former).

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Land_Survey for info on prairie farm addy's.


The 1921 census was released last month, but it'll be a few months before it's transcribed. Even though one could guess where to look, there's no digitization online yet.

Usually, one can just subtract the page # from the URL so z000018402.pdf here, then start paging back to find the 1901 Sched 2, but not here.

A search for Rosenfeld (SSW of Winnipeg) gets:
NW 1/4 Sec. 9, Twp. 3, R. 1, WPM
So they're in the 6 x 6 mile township block kitty-corner (to the SE) to Rosenfeld's.
1916 didn't give a section #, so all we can say (from Twp=2) is they're 7-12 m N of US border.

Thanks Anne, any info you can find would be so helpful, my background is English and Irish and I have kinda given up on it, I went to Killarney a few years ago and the priest went thro the records and I got some siblings of my Grandmother, I didnt even know if they married in England or Ireland at least I found out about that.

I can PM you my e.mail addy if that would help.

Thanks again.

Hi Sandra,
No problem, if any of us here can help, we will!

There are some actual records available on Ancestry such as the births/baptisms in Ontario for the children of the Calder/Kissock marriage.

I can also view the marriage cert for this couple and I'm pretty sure that Eliza Kissock's mother was Mary Ann LESLIE rather than Peslie.

If I get time over the next day or two, I will save as many actual docs as I can find and send them by PM.

Anne

EDIT:
I forgot to mention this which may or may not be relevant.....
I also have Irish Kissocks in my tree.
When I searched for info, (in a similar time period to Eliza) I noticed that the vast majority of Kissock/Kissack/Kissicks ect were fron Co Antrim, around the Ballymena area. Mine were no exception!

However, Donald snr... based on the naming pattern of his children with Eliza Kissock, he was easy to locate in Scotland.
Born in Petty, Inverness on 17 Jan 1834 to Donald Calder amd Margaret MacIntosh.
