My husband's grandmother left Scotland from Glasgow aboard the SS Marie and arrived in Sault Ste Marie on 9-1-1923. She left USA in November 1924 and came back on April 19, 1925. I do not know what ship she left on or the one she came back on. Her name is Helen Nelson Robertson.
I am looking for any thing on these voyages: manifest, image, etc.
Thanks in Advance
Cindy

Cindy,
I wonder if you could check this voyage to see if it is her.

Departing Greenock 10th April 1925 for Saint John N.B.
Ship: MONTROYAL
Helen Robertson, 6 Davidsons Close, Cowdenbeath.
Occupation: Cook.
Aged 23.
Country of intended residence USA.

If you know that the address she lived at in Cowdenbeath was the same as the above, then it's her.
...Although she went to St John N.B. her intended destination was USA.
Brian, Glasgow, Scotland
I will have a search for the other voyages but can't promise anything.

Cindy,
I found some other bits and pieces of information which might be interesting to you.

Helen is on the census for 1911 at 2 Wemyss St, Cowdenbeath...
Donald Robertson Head 38
Helen Wife 29 (b 1882)
Helen dau 9 (b abt 1902)
Robert son 8
Agnes dau 7
John son 6
Donald son 4
Maggie dau 2
Jessie dau 6 months

So Helen's parents were Donald Robertson and Helen Gibson, which I think you already know. (Donald Robertson had married Helen Gibson at Edinburgh in 1901).

...I think I saw an item attached to your tree for Helen,(b 1902) which is good proof that the above census is correct. It is the Borders Crossings image. Canada to USA. There are a lot of scribbles and ink on the page hiding some information, but if you look closely you will see that it gives her mother as being: "Helen Gibson, 2 Wemyss St, Cowdenbeath."

There is also an address in Indiana which is hidden by ink... 466? ....? St, Indiana. I think what happened there was that the address she had come from in Scotland was supposed to be given in that column and by mistake the address she was going to was typed in by mistake, and this is why there are so many changes.
Hope this helps,
Brian

Thank you very much. My husband has her citizenship paper which mentions one trip but not the trip leaving and arriving again.
