I have in my tree Jessie Hamilton Chapman (1932-2008) who married Walter Currie Risk (1931-2017) in 1954 in Airdrie. His parents were James Risk and Christina Cruickshanks Currie, who were married in Coatbridge in 1921.

Thank you Skoosh and Forfarian. Really appreciate your help. Forfarian, I haven't quite got to this date  yet so Walter Currie Risk may well be linked!

He may well be, but you can pick him up as and when you get to his parents. By then I might even know what family he had, if any.

Hi All,

I'm posting again in case anyone would like to connect and share notes on the Risk Family.  I am a great granddaughter of Ralph Risk, born 1892, and Margaret Robertson, born 1894.  I'm currently trying to put together a family history for my granny and would love to speak to others who have already been down this road. Many thanks, Clare

Greetings Clare
I also have both:
 Ralph Risk, born 1892, and Margaret Robertson, born 1894.
Happy to put our heads together.  Do you have a public tree to view?

This is a message for Coline so I'm really hoping you might still check this Board! I am a great great great granddaughter of William Risk (born: 1796) who married Elizabeth Hall.  If you are still interested I have a lot of the recent Risk details but am struggling a bit with some of the older details such as William Risk's grandfather, who I believe was John Risk (born 1725), including who he married and who his parents were. I would love to swap notes as we are keen to create a book of the Risk history.

Fingers crossed you get this!

William Risk (born: 1796) who married Elizabeth Hall.
I have both people and will be happy struggle with the earlier ones!
Did you know that you can also send a Personal Message to Coline in Australia?
