    BRODIE    I I am tracing my Brodie ancestors in Canada.  My first Brodie was Edward who came from Scotland, and married Emily Davis in the early 1800's.  My great great grandfather was their son Colon Campbell Brodie born about 1835 in Bayside Westmorland County I believe. I found he and his brother Stuart Brodie in an Emigrant Settlement in 1865-1868.  He was called Campbell Brodie in the Hutchinson Directory.  This Emigrant Settlement, I have been told is now Melrose.  I am from USA so am not too
    familiar with Canada, though i am learning with my research. 

    My first question to you would be:
    1)How do I find out if my first Edward Brodie were naturalized and where would I search for records for him?  As well as a marriage record for he and Emily Davis?
    2) How would I find a birth record or certificate for Colon Campbell Brodie born approx 1835?
    3)What exactly was this Emigrant Settlement, and how can I find clues on why my ancestor was there?
    4)How do I find a birth certificate for Colon Campbells son Colon Campbell Brodie Jr. born 1866?

    I would appreciate any guidance you can be.  We have found my Colon Campbell Brodie Sr. in an 1861 census with wife Margaret and son William in Westmorland Co, Westmorland Parish.  We also found possible siblings of Colons living with Emily Davis Brodies brother and family in 1861 same place.  In 1851 census for Botsford Parish we found Emily  as Emily Braddie, living with two of her children. We also find other of her children living with her brother Stephen. Could you tell me where Botsford Parish is in relation to Westmorland Parish? 

    Thanks for any answers you may have for me.  Sincerely Barb Brodie Kineke
