Belinda's Ramsay and Robertson Family History
Hi! Welcome to my Family History site!
This site is a combination of the history of the Ramsay and Robertson families in Australia. These families were linked with the marriage of my mother, Jacqueline Neida Robertson, and my father, Kenneth Alistair Ramsay.
 Over time researching our family history, I have discovered branches of the family in many parts of the world, but the majority are in Australia. My ancestors came from England, Isle of Man, Scotland, and France. While my ancestors decided Australia was the place to go, other branches spread to the United States and Canada. It's hard for us to imagine what hardship these families faced looking for a new life in a new land, but I'm glad they did!
Of course, there are a couple who had no choice, coming as convicts to a colony which offered them a better future than they would have had back home.

I changed the name of this site from Genealogy to Family History, as I believe there is a lot more to families than just the genes. Family stories and the interaction of families with one another, particularly in the early days of the colony in Australia, give us an insight into how our ancestors lived, worked and played.


 Most of my information was obtained from talking to relatives and from researching public records. Also many people have helped me by sharing the research they have done. While researching my family history, I have discovered many new relatives and made many new friends. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in my research, and include names and contacts with each family page.


 This is a definitely a work in progress, and so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.
