Does anyone know of a passenger list for this ship that left Holland  in 1817 for America but ended up in Bergen Norway ?  It has a fascinating story which is well documented.

apologies, this was Hedon road, just adding to the way things were done at that time.

thank you for all this, I do appreciate it.   in the 1970's, my gran was asked if she wanted an urn from her parents grave as they were removing it to make a rose garden and grass path.   the grave had been bought in perpetuity.   I have since looked for their grave and other names now appear in tis rose garden, but not my great grandparents . . . .

hello.  I am researching the jute mills of Dundee, particularly those belonging to Chalmers and Hackney, North Tay Street.  the big Tay St Mills were owned in the late 1840's I believe by the Gilroys, I think this was the mill owned originally by Boyack.   can anyone tell me where were the Chalmers Hackney mills in relation to this enormous mill?     

(William Hackney and Charles Chalmers were the early mill owners and I would also love more information as to how they started this mill. )

thank you.

thank you for that re garding babies and birth.  I too have noticed the long long amount of years women gave birth in.    Often there seem to be long gaps, say of 10 years between siblings. maybe there were miscarriages or early deaths not notified?  were people supposed to ALWAYS notify the authorities of a death?   an infant death too?   or was it optional. ?

I can't wait for the next installment of this story!     what did they died of, the other family members?!    How our present lives have come to be because of slim chances of survival in the past!!!
