The biography for Mysie Georgina Watson is empty. What can you add?
I was born with the name Mysie pronounced (Myzee) which is Gaelic for Margaret or Marion(?),,,anyway at the age of 30 or so I went with "Margaret"
I was born in Toronto,Ontario Canada, January 25th,1948 to William Angus E.Watson and Jean Grace Brodie) Murphy.
I was told that it was a name passed down in the matriarchal line,,,,for example my mother referred to my Aunt Marion Craig (Brodie) Murphy as your "Auntie Mysie". I was also told that it was a name given to the oldest girl, and my older sister Lynda said she is grateful she didn't get it because my mother was sick when she was born and my father William Angus E Watson named her Lynda.
Mysie is my legal first name on my birth certificate so I was surprised to see that my Auntie 'Mysie's' legal first name is Marion.
The first time I ever heard my name referenced to someone else (other than myself or my Aunt) was at the age of 19 when I was watching a movie about Bonnie Prince Charlie(actually the tv was just running in the background while I was doing something else and WOW,,,,what an experience to actually hear my unique name within that context. Mysie(in the movie) was a servant girl,,,alas no relation to 'Charlie
Michael Stern's family Grandparents Getzl(George) and Rose Stern,,,,emigrated to Toronto,Ontario Canada from Ostroweic. Left family behind that never had the chance for life here in this beautiful country of Canada

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.
If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.
Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
