RUSSEN - trying to connect the clans
« on: Monday 25 August 14 12:31 BST (UK) »
I am researching all those named Russen (and variants). Hopefully one day I will have enough to do a One name study.

Russen is on my mother's side of my family and they are mostly from Norfolk, UK, but I want to try and connect them to other Russens I have found in various UK censuses especially those from Hampshire, Middlesex and the England / Wales border.

I am very happy to share the research I currently have.

It also seems that some Russens went abroad, probably America or Canada as they are missing from some censuses and then they return, so I would like to hear from anyone with Russen information.


Thanks

I have Russon's in my tree, starting with my 2x great-grandmother, Deborah, born in Walsall, 1877. I'm pretty sure the spelling was Russen on at least one occasion (census I think but can't recall off hand). Let me know if i can help at all.

Hi,

Yes Russen / Russon / Russin and a few other variations have been found. I think they should all link up some how.


I have a few entries from Walsall, but I have not connected them to mine in Norfolk as yet.

What is the easiest way for us to share more information? I am pretty new on here.

I don't have Deborah on my database as yet :)
