Updates

With the ongoing publicity for the book and worldwide exposure hopefully we will be able to find out more about the passengers. This page will be updated with any new information. Thanks to a roots chat member for this.

Marc Ami in an interview with the procurator fiscal at Portree on the Isle of Skye gave us the names of the Kempf family. Unfortunately he was slightly mistaken. The church records for the Canton of Uri have just come online, allowing us to access the baptismal records of the children. Kampf is pronounced Kempf so an easy mistake to make.
