I would be so pleased to hear from anyone in Portsoy who may have information regarding my family. My Father's name Alexander (Sandy) Watson, Stonemason, born in 189l. My Mother Isabella Watson (Slater), born in 1898. Emigrated to Canada in approx. 1926 with my 3 brothers, Alexander (Jack), Milton and Magnus. I was born in Canada. My Dad's home address was 1 Durn Rd. (I believe now demolished). I believe my Mom's home was on Seafield Street. Her parents, James Slater and Annie Slater (nee Wood) also emigrated to Canada before my parents with their other 4 children, John, George, Margaret and William. My Mother's Uncle, George Wood. was the mayor of Portsoy when the Queen visited in, I believe, 1960. I have a picture of him shaking hands with the Queen which I would gladly give to anyone gathering information on Portsoy.
