Hi Elizabeth,
I have found your web page and was interested to read about Magdalena Stewart Munro emigrating to Australia. My Gr Gr Gr Grandmother was Magdalena Stewart who married Donald Munro and your Magdalena was Donald's niece. Interesting both Magdalena's married Donalds!
My Magdalena's son WSJH Munro was a surgeon and emmigrated to NZ where he died a few years after arriving. My Gr Grandmother remained in NZ and the remaining children, either went to Australia or Europe.
If you have any information on the Munro family in Caithness, I would be very interested.
