yes, in my last post I said my studies with NIGS were coming to an end but then I found some courses to keep me enjoying my times with NIGS including a new Scottish course coming up inva few months so I am now selecting four more courses and if more Scottish and Italian courses are scheduled I will be involved.
Meanwhile, I have a study on passengers on the Torilla (1911) and Roscommon (1912) arriving in Brisbane, Australia so if you have any connection please contact me. All good fun.
yes, it has been a busy time with both study and research since I last posted in 2018. I am now ending my studies with NIGS until more courses are available on Scotland and Itsly. Meanwhile, I have commenced a research project on passengers who came to Australia on the two ships my parents arrived. My initial research has a focus on those arriving in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia with a view of establishing if any families had contact prior to departure or after arrival. I have another project planned as a same name surname study covering the period from about 1885 to 1912 but this will all take time. However, if any of you had passengers on the Roscommon in 1912 or the Torilla in 1911 please contact me.
My mother was Margaret Kant Russell born in Glasgow in 1905 and came to Australia in 1912. Her father was Joseph Kant Russell (1880-1921) and her mother was Catherine Gilchrist (1876-1949). Other surnames in her pedigree back to the early 1800s are Johnston, Love McLachlan, Sawers, Primrose, Wilson and McNish.
