Hi,

Trying to find any trace the afternamed family who arrived on The 'Tunisian' which had left Glasgow, Scotland on 23rd July 1921. The family were contracted to disembark at Quebec however the ship went onto Montreal.

The family consisted of -
John Anderson born 1884, occupation coalminer, born Beath, Fife, Scotland
Jeanie Anderson born 1887, wife
Jeanie Stanton Anderson, daughter, born 1905, Wemyss, Fife
James Anderson, son, born 1907, Wemyss, Fife &
William Anderson, son born 1911, Cowdenbeath, Fife

This family has been a brick wall to me for years as I could not find any trace of them after WW1 ended in 1918. Today I have found the passenger list providing details as above.

Any help much appreciated in pointing me in the right direction to find where they moved onto or any trace after they disembarked from the Tunisian.

Thanks.

Canada Oceans Arrival Form shows that this family was headed to Morris Stevenson, 15 Lily Street, Nordegg, Alberta.

1921 Canadian census shows Morris (33), wife Charlotte (34) and children Lizzie (8 ) Andrew (4) all born Scotland with immigration year of 1921 at 15 Lily Street Nordegg.

Canadian Oceans Arrival Form for Morris Stevenson shows that Morris was born in Kelty and he arrived on the Tunisian going to brother-in-law Charles Johnston.

Morris Stevenson died in Drumheller Alberta in 1943.  His obituary is in the Drumheller Mail.  It says he moved from Nordegg to Drumheller in 1926.    One of the pallbearers was a W E G Anderson.

A Jeannie Anderson died 21 Aug 1932 Red Deer.  Given that her daughter married in Red Deer the family might have moved to Red Deer from Nordegg.  Red Deer a modern day 2 hour drive (approx.) east from Nordegg.

Runkitty & Cosmac,

Fantastic finds and thanks so much providing this information. As mentioned in my initial post, this family had been a brick wall to me for years and I only found the passenger list this morning!

John Anderson born 1884 is my great grand uncle and was 1 of 7 children. The other 6 were all accounted for except John and this gives me the leads I needed!

Thanks so much and I will now review all info provided by you both. :)
