Sorry, Gibbo. No birth, no marriage and no deaths for either yet.


Several possible birth reg in Sunderland and other parts of England

Possible death
6746/1909 DONKIN MICHAEL - JOHN P - MARGARET - PETERSHAM

Hugh gap if this is it:

11570/1952 DONKIN JOHNANNA - DUNCAN STUART - MARGARET - HURSTVILLE

I'm wondering if the marriage was in Scotland. I can't find the marriage.
