I am researching the McKenzie family from Portree, Isle of Skye, in particular my great grandmother May Shaw Geddes McKenzie, (as shown in 1861 census below)
I don't know when May migrated to Australia but I know she married John McDonald in Adelaide, South Australa in 1865 under the name of "Mysie" McKenzie.
I would really appreciate any info about her or her family.
Regards to all,
Kinglake, Victoria, Australia
