I am looking for my uncle, Kenneth MacDonald. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland approximately in 1919. His Mother's name was Janet (maiden name Rae) and his father's name was Ian MacDonald. He was taken to live with two aunt's when he only a few months old, they lived in Edinburgh, one aunt was named maggie smith. It is really important to find out what happened to him. He may not be aware that he has family out there looking for him. My mother Margaret Rae MacDonald was a twin, her sisters name was Isabelle MacDonald, she had another sister name Mary MacDonald and one brother names William MacDonald. When he was only a month or so old, his mother passed away, my mother at that time was 7 years old, her father gave him to the aunts to take care of him, but they never saw him again, my mothers father passed away when she was 14, at that time the family was split up and my mother and her two sisters were able to keep in touch, however, William was put in a home because he was an epilitic and we were told he passed away in his 20's. However, since my mothers sisters lived one until she was 79 and the other into her mid 80's, and my mother is still alive and will be 90 next march, it is very possible her brother is still alive and unaware he has family, or if not maybe he has family that would like to meet with my mother and her family. This is really important to me to give my mother the one wish she has always had and been unable to find an answer to, is to find out what happened to her brother and where did he go, please if anyone remembers anything or has any information about Kenneth MacDonald, please let me know, we are not sure if his aunts had adopted him, thereby making his name Smith, we do not believe so. Please help me find my uncle or his family.

My sincere thanks to all who may help.
