Here is more information :

During our stay in Aberdeen, I would like to visit if possible the region where my paternal grandmother is native of.  Here is the information I found on herself and on her family.

Her name was Williamina Thom or Minnie Thom.  Her father’s name was William Thom born on October 10th, 1842 in Tyrie, Aberdeen and he died on December 8th, 1890.

Her mother’s name was Margaret Thom (born Esslemont) born on 1837 to Back Street, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire and she died on October 11th, 1885 to Broad Street Lane, Fraserburgh.


The children of William Thom and Margaret Thom were :

Mary Maria Esslemont born on May 4th, 1860 at Fraserburgh, Aberdeen.

Williamina Thom born November 22nd, 1861 in Fraserbugh, Aberdeen.

William Thom born on June 20th, 1865 in Old Deer, Aberdeen.

James Thom born on May 20th, 1868 in Old Deer, Aberdeen.

George Esslemont Thom born on November 3rd, 1871 in Fraserburgh, Aberdeen.

Christina Downie McDougall, born Thom, on June 2nd, 1874 and died on June 2nd, 1907, in Aberdeen.

Samuel Craik Esslemont Thom born on May 28th, 1879 in Aberdeen.

My grandmother Williamina or Minnie Thom had left Aberdeen for Canada when she was 18 years old according to my late father had told me.

She married my grandfather Edmond Langlois on February 24th, 1898 in Sillery very close to Quebec City, Canada.

An extract of the marriage certificate says : Minnie Thom, was Protestant, mjr daughter of William Thom, builder and of Jessie Thom of Inverness, Scotland.

I know nothing else about her family and I do not think she had kept links with her family once arrived in Sillery.  I do not know either the reasons why she left Aberdeen.

During our stay in Aberdeen I would like to visit the cemetery where members of family had been laid in rest.  Maybe there are family members who still live in Aberdeen.  I mean cousins of the second or third generation which I would like to meet if it is possible.  I will try to find information about them so I can visit them.  I continue the research about them.

Best regards,

Michel Langlois
