thank you so much...i have direct lines of my russell names back to patrik russell 1585..ireland i think.some from stirling,pencaitland,stirling,areas.
the old lds site allowed more info back then.
robert russell is a family name...mine goes to last born in scotland ,my ggg grandparents, david russell married mary crookston .their son william ,born 1814 cadder i think,married janet forrest.they immigrated to tasmania, australia in 1857,hence my family resides here.
family saying related as cousins to lord john russell.cant find connection as yet.
thanking you again for quick reply,julie
