William Porteous Born November 3, 1897.

Hello, Greetings from Toronto!

I am getting no where trying to uncover my Scottish roots. My Great Grandad William Porteous married Jean Kilpatrick and had three children in or around Edinburgh. Archie, William( my Grandad), and Ina. They all came to Canada after WW2 I presume. Eldest William served in WW1 as far as I know. And William Jr served in the Royal Navy in WW2.
My Grandad was a Mason in Canada. And from what I hear an amateuer soccer player and swimmer back in Edinburgh.

Any information would be truly appreciated.
