The names Agnes and Jane daughters of George and Joanne Forrest, are not the names of my mother and aunt.  They should read Jean 02/01/1915 & Nancy 1917 unless these names where recorded incorrect.  My mother was Jean Nicholas Simpson Forrest, my grandfather George they emigrated to Canada in 1921, with her sister Nancy as I have known her by.

Nancy was often used as a nickname for Agnes.

I am not sure about Jane/Jean in this context. Usually Jane is nickname for Jean, but, if someone else in the family was also Jane, they might have always called her Jean.

Well thank you as I was not aware of the nicknames used, so yes this maybe correct

Hi Elizabeth.  There is some confusion in these profiles.  Either there are multiple people with the same names being conflated, or there are several duplicate profiles that need to be merged.  The Agnes you link to in your question, and her sister Jane, are shown as daughters of Forrest-966 and Hutchinson-923.  On your profile you are showing a different ID for your mother, and her profile shows different IDs for her parents as well.  The orphaned profiles are Open, so once you're able to figure out the problem and get the data sorted out, you may be able to fix it yourself.  Good luck!
