Ed, I've no idea whether Bernardi and Mary went to Scotland - but brothers, or brothers and sisters often emigrated together at that time. The little information I have about Bernardi and Mary (or Mairea, nee Daly) is that they were from "Killukin and Ballinameen", which are the names of two villages just to the south of the road between Boyla and Carrick-on-Shannon in northern Roscommon. This is pretty much the most populous area for Dignan ancestry, as you might be aware (traditionally the family is colsely associated with the Kilronan/Ballyfarnan area, a few moles north-east of Boyle). I've no information aall about Bernardi's parents, or Mary/Mairea's.
