I look after the Clan Munro in Australia & put out a newsletter 3 times a year with a genealogy section. If you would like me to put a query from you in the next one, just let me know.

Hi Don,
That would be great do you want me to send you the text (with minor corrections) in a email? Do you need me to do anything?
As I understand it Alexander Andrew Munro aka Palmer was the illegitimate son of Margaret Munro. Margaret Munro was born in Falkirk, Stirlingshire, Scotland in 1802

Hi Sandra,

My name is Katie and I live in Tasmania. I love family history but have had little luck in researching my grandmother’s family - until now! Her maiden name was Munro and her father was Robert Alexander Munro. His father was Samuel Jennings Munro, son of Andrew and Isabella! So exciting to discover this!

I am intrigued I only have two children for Robert Alexander Munro:- Norman Eldridge Munro & Basil Samuel Munro. I do know that there is a family in Tasmania but I didn't realise it was also from this branch of the family, so I probably only the first two children who were born in Victoria.
