The MacDonald Family in 5 Signatures

A selection of signatures from my MacDonald ancestors, all of which are self explanatory. By way of background information, Donald McDonald (1795-1879) is recorded on a poor law record of 1851 as being unable to work in his profession as a cotton spinner in consequence of bad eye sight. This may go some way to explaining why he only left a ‘mark’ on his wife’s death certificate in 1861.

Colin MacDonald (1960- ) My father's signature in 1979.
