Hi just wanted to find out if any relatives of Alexander Inrig who emigrated to austrailia from scotland are researching on ancestry. Mother is Georgina Rosie, Father is James Inrig, one of his sisters was called Catherine (my great, great grandmother).

Thanks

There is a Mr A INRIG who arrived in Fremantle, Western Australia aboard Oronsay on 10 March 1925 (NAA Recordsearch passenger search and NLA Trove newspapers).

He was living in Kalgoorlie area by 1936 (electoral rolls). Looks like he played soccer there (see NLA Trove)? It appears he did not marry.

Hi, thanks for replying.
I think he boarded the ship oronsay bound for freemantle on the 7/2/1925 (not 100% sure it is him, but from the residence he lived in before departure which is documented on the passenger list, it is likely to be him).

Thanks

That sounds about right, if it actually was him that boarded the ship. I did look up in the newspaper which showed passenger lists as you suggested.I did search for the electoral rolls you suggested as well.

I am wondering how you think he played football?? Couldn't find any information when I searched online.

Thanks

Hi

I did click on the link as you suggested. It is a shame that mother/fathers names were not listed, as this would have given confirmation that it actually was him.

Thanks
