The McROSTIE family
Scotland to Osgoode Township, Ontario, Canada

October 31, 2003:

Hi Al,

I was wondering if you'd know of a volunteer genealogy
angel who could help me do a search on a Andrew
McROSTIE born 1828 Scotland m. Christine ? born 1833
Ontario. I assume that Andrew & Christine were married
about 1855 most probably in Osgoode, Ontario. Their
children were: Peter; William; John; James; Andrew Jr;
Robert; George; Thomas; Joseph; Charles; Jenet and
Catherine. All were on the 1881 census in Osgoode,
Russell County, Ontario. I'm helping someone find her
ancestral roots. On the census, it says that they were
Reformed Presbyterian, so would I look-up on the United
Church parish records if I need to find more
information on this family? Once I know where he was
born exactly in Scotland, then I can order the
microfims from the Family History Center in Regina,
Sask. THANKS.

Hi Nicole:

Thanks for your e-mail regarding the McRostie surname in Osgoode Township.

This is a familiar name to me as my ancestors were in Osgoode Township about
the same time.
I have a hunch that the Osgoode Township Historical Society may have some
info on the McRosties.

You can try them by e-mail at oths@magma.ca The archivist is Michelle
Lachance.
