Hi, My name is Joe Russell, I was born in Winchburgh, West Lothian, Scotland in 1937. I became interested in family history through reading "Family Tree" magazine. I contacted several Agencies that carried out research in 1992, and commissioned one to trace my fathers line. He was Thomas Scott Russell, born in 1898 in Stewartfield, Broxburn, West Lothian, Scotland.

The resulting report was very poor, they could not even find my grandfather James Biggar Russell, he was supposed to have been born in Biggar, Lanarkshire, Scotland.

I later found that he was in fact born in Glasgow, he married a Rachel Halbert in Govan, Glasgow on 31 December 1841. They had ten children: Joseph, Peter, ? Alma, Sarah, Elizabeth, Jane, Rachel, Jessie, Joan and last but not least, my grandfather James Biggar Russell.

If anyone is researching the Russell Name with links to Halbert, Davies, Scott, Nesbit, Wallace & Black I would love to hear from you.
