I have been only doing genealogy since 2017 but find it interesting and challenging. I hope to make some new contacts that may help in my search for ancestors.

Good luck with your research.

Hi, I have ancestors from Aldborough Elgin Ontario Best of luck with your research.
I am trying to find a link between the Nesbit/Nisbet and Malcolm family.
In the 1881 census Margaret Nesbit aged 27, born in Glasgow is there as a visitor at Archibald Hunter Robertson and his wife's residence. Could this be a relation? I am sure she is.
I have looked Margaret (93ZX-HMC) up on Scotland's people and Family Search. and She was born 20. 2.1854 to Richard Nisbet (932X-HMZ) and Elizabeth Anderson (93ZX-HMI)FR1057 in Gorbals, Glasgow City Gros data 644/002 0331. Richard and Eliz married 21 Oct 1853 in Gorbals (93ZX-HMZ)
Other chn Richard Nisbet 31 July 1864 Cambuslang Lanark, Elizabeth Nisbet1860, Archibald Robertson Nisbet 1862, Elizabeth Nisbet 18 Feb 1874 (93ZX-HMC) Mary Malcolm Nisbet b 15 Feb 1871 Elizabeth Nisbet18 2 1874 KFZ6-ZRN Thomas b 7 Apl 1856 Govan,
Researching in the LDS many years ago there was a Nesbit link to some Malcolm names. I have been doing genealogy since the 1970s and this is one of my brick walls. I Know why Mary R was brought up by her aunt.
Robert and wife Agnes left in 1865 for NZ leaving daughter Mary R behind with sister Mary Lyle Malcolm.

I have several Nesbit/Nisbet families in my tree connected to Anderson and Galt but I have not yet found a connection to Malcolm.

644 / 10 / 1716

Lyle, Millar, Taylor, Whyte, Gilmour, Callender, Porterfield, Yeats

No connection going way back.
