Shetland / The Royal Hotel, Lerwick - Robertson family
« on: Saturday 20 June 20 10:34 BST (UK)  »
My great grandmother Lizzie Robertson and her husband James Robertson were proprietors of The Royal Hotel, Lerwick in 1898.

Looking to clarify where in Lerwick The Royal Hotel was positioned? Checked old maps etc and found Queens Hotel & Grand Hotel but not The Royal Hotel. Anyone know where The Royal Hotel was, if name changed / long demolished? Hoping to visit Shetland in next year.

Thanks for any help.

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.

Hi folks,

Looking for any info on Janet Anderson born 18/07/1807, Carnock, Fife.

Janet Anderson is my 3rd great grand aunt. After the birth certificate I cant find any trace of Janet Anderson. Checked BDM's and census records but no trace.

Parents of Janet Anderson were -
John Anderson and
Barbara Hume who were married in Dunfermline, 12 December, 1806.
Barbara Hume was found in 1841 census living in Dunfermline at Beveridgewell, with her son Stuart after death of her husband John Anderson.

John and Barbara Anderson had 4 children -

Janet the oldest as above
John born 1809 (emigrated to Australia 1863)
Thomas born 1812
Stuart (or Stewart) born 1814 (emigrated to Australia 1859)

Looking for any trace of Janet Anderson after the birth as its my current brick wall!

Any help appreciated.

Looking for any family information on one of my relatives who was born on the 'Glen Isla' ship bound for Australia in 1857.

Andrew Paton Anderson - Born 1857 On board 'Glen isla'. 

His parents were -
John Anderson, bn 1831 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. Died 1911 Grenfell, NSW, Australia.
Margaret Paton, bn 1830 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. Died 1919, Grenfell, NSW, Australia.
I believe Andrew Paton Anderson and Anna Maria Dodd (birthplace and date unknown) were married in 1880 in Narrabri, New South Wales, Australia. However the trail then ends with my access levels on FindMyPast etc regarding researching. ???

Looking to find out any children to the family; any date / place of death for Andrew Paton Anderson and wife.

Thanks for any assistance.

Midlothian / Carmichael Cunningham, born 30 Oct 1825, Colinton, Edinburgh.
« on: Tuesday 09 August 16 21:33 BST (UK)  »
Looking for some help or advice to trace death record of forenamed Carmichael Cunningham born 30/10/1825, Colinton. He was my Great Great Grandfather and last found in 1861 census staying in Colinton Village, Edinburgh with his wife, Jane Watt and children.

Although it is a fairly uncommon name it turns out there is at least another 7 Carmichael Cunningham's in the family born between 1798 and 1910 that I have found so far. This Carmichael Cunningham was a Master Blacksmith by occupation.

Any help or advice appreciated.
