As the decendant of one of the children it would be nice if there was help in finding any papers on our family. What ever information is available.

My father Albert (14) and his brother William (12) left from Liverpool in May 1914 aboard the Allen SS Lines the Virginian. They were part of the Merry group going to Stratford ON and the Annie MacPherson house. Any one have family onboard that ship?
