      Hi Gweneth
      Joan McKenzie (1830-1872) was the daughter of Ann Sangster and Murdoch McKenzie. I don't have any dates for them yet as I am still researching this side. Joan McKenzie was married to James Sim around 1850'ish. Whether she had any siblings I can't say but I will do some research over Xmas when I have some time off work.
      The Sim line is connected to Geddes through the grandaughter of James Sim (Edith Sim) she married Peter Geddes in 1921, who is my hubands's paternal grandfather.
      There are desendants of James Sim in New Zealand and the daughter of Peter Geddes and Edith Sim lives in Austrailia.
      I will do a bit of digging for you and see what comes to light.
      Good luck with you research and have a nice Xmas.

      Hello Margaret
      I have been researching my husband's lines of Campbell and McKenzie.  The Campbells came from Findotchy and the McKenzies were from around Fraserburgh.  Ann Campbell married Peter McKenzie in Peterhead in the 1850s.  This line has also a connection with the names JACK, McINTOSH and GEDDES from around the Aberdeen area.  I was wondering if any of these names are familiar within your GEDDES or McKENZIE lines?
