My father's mother was a Finlay. Her name was Mary Ethel Finlay, and she married my paternal grandfather Robert James Toy Baverstock, I believe, in the 1920s. They had four children Mary, Harold, Kathleen and my father Robert George Baverstock, who passed away in November 2005 in Beausejour Manitoba. His mother Mary Ethel Finlay Baverstock died in 1978 in Winnipeg, his father Robert J.T. Baverstock passed in 1945 in Winnipeg.
I know that my dad often spoke of an uncle Will Finlay. Do you think there's a connection between our families?
I'm currently researching family history as I try to find a name for my son, who will arrive in August '06. Finlay is the current frontrunner for his first name.
