The Isle of South Uist

MacCormack family

Title: MacCormack family
Posted by: Susan Wedlake on 11-02-2020

Discussion: Wondering where to look for information about my relative Hugh MacCormack. He was married to Joanna Steele and left South Uist (the MacDonald settlement in Tracadie) for Prince Edward Island Canada sometime prior to 1798 (he appears in the 1798 PEI census with 5 children). Sadly, that is all the information I have.
Thanks for any advice you can provide.

I forgot to ask the names of their children in order which can often be a clue to parentage if they used the naming tradition?

Hi Susan,

Unfortunately there's no written info. accessible on the Island for that era.

You may be lucky to find a MI (Memorial Inscription) or a death notice with added info?

Other than that I think DNA is the only other route for finding possible siblings of Hugh & Johanna.

I believe Joanna may be one of my relatives although I've no way of proving it.
