I am trying to find the Davidson family who emigrated to Canada but dont know when exactly. Ronald J Davidson married Joyce R Yates in Islington in June 1951. They had at least two children Christine born Willesden Dec 1952 and Susan born Dec 1953 Willesden. A Ronald Davidson born Northumberland Dec 1951may be an elder brother. Three children 3 years running!!!! Anyway of trying to find if either the parents are still alive or who the children married? I know nothing about trying to find people in Canada. Any help much appreciated

There's another Davidson/Yates marriage in Northumberland. Seems likely Ronald was from that marriage.

Try the Canadian White pages but bear in mind they emigrated over 50 years ago
