Search for transatlantic ties

In the journal of my grandmother, Margaret Brown Ruggeri, she writes of visiting Selkirk on July 25, 1966, with her husband, Sebastian Ruggeri.

She tells of seeing nine cousins that day, but only names five of them – Miss Meg Tilly, her sister Minnie, another sister, Mill Jessie, her daughter Lila and her husband George.

In August, two aunts, two cousins, my daughter and myself will be coming to Scotland from America. I’m hoping to set up a meeting on Sunday, August 5, to meet family.

Will anyone with information about my family members please contact me at or my cousin, Paula Cuccurullo in Edinburgh, at or 89 Mayburn Avenue, Loanhead EH20 9EP.
