Hi Stuart

Thanks very much for your email I have now had a chance to study your Soliloquies Compared to your research mine is certainly in the early stages! However I have made contact, via the net, (and subsequently met) one of my Beattie relatives who lives in Brisbane I must say it was a wonderful experience!

As I have not done any research at all on the McKinnon side of the family, I am very interested to know the connection between your wife, Annette, and my great, great grandmother Catherine McKinnon (whose husband was George Beattie) I have a copy of their Marriage Certificate which states "parents not listed" However the witnesses are:

Hugh McKinnon Mary Isobella McKinnon

I presume these are the parents I also have a Death Transcription dated 2/9/1931 for George Beattie which lists the children of the marriage:

William H 51 Roderick K 49 George G 47 Malcolm M 45 MY GRANDFATHER Mary TS 44 Stewart 41 LIVING NON DECEASED

In your Family History Index (last page) you have listed the children as: Malcolm (d. 1932 Annandale) Roderick (186 - 1936) Mary Isabella (Bella (1865 - 1952) single Kenneth (1862 - 1944)

CORRECTIONS:

Malcolm (my grandfather) d. 5/8/1952 Kenneth (error - incorrect name)

I can post you a copy of the Death Transcription so that you can correct your records

Reading about your family I noticed that your son is a computer programmer My youngest son, Matthew, is a Systems Engineer IT and works for the NSW Police and my eldest son, David, is a Graphic Designer My husband, David, is a Captain (semi ret) working on Sydney Harbour

I look forward to corresponding with you and to finding out about the Mckinnon connection!

Best wishes

Heather Chandler
