Hi I am wanting to find someone to look up my McKee's in the book of McKee's. Can you direct me to someone that can help me.

I am researching my McKee/McGowan/Agnew/Mullin family history.
My Mother's parents were both born in Northern Ireland. My Grandma Molly (Mary Elizabeth Mullan or Mullin or Mullen) was born in Belfast about 1908 and my Grandpa William (Bill) James McKee was born in 1896 in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. My Grandpa and Grandma McKee were both long gone before I was born.
They both moved to Windsor, Ontario, Canada at different times and married in Detroit, Michigan, USA, but lived in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
I know that my Grandpa's father was James William McKee born October 30, 1862 in Bangor and died May 23, 1919.
James' married Jane McGowan McKee at St. Anne Cathedral in Belfast, NI.
Jane was born Oct 25, 1866 in Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland and died on July 4, 1934. Her parents were Hugh McGowan & Mary Agnew McGowan.
James and Jane had four boys, My Grandpa William James (Bill), John Wesley (Wesley), and twins Marshall & George. My Grandpa and Wesley's family all lived in Canada, but the twins stayed in Bangor, and their offspring mainly still live there now. I have found them and visited them in 2004, but they know nothing of the history.
