Where did your McDonald family come from? My husband's McDonalds came from
Bowmore, Islay, but not on the Marco Polo.

> The earliest members of "my" McDonald family to settle in Australia
arrived on the 1852 voyage of the Marco Polo, going to a property at Avoca,
and soon after settled at Campbells Forest. There were 60 McDonalds on that
voyage of 900+passengers. I have to wonder whether there are other people
reasearching the McDonald name whose ancestors arrived on that same voyage
of the Marco Polo.
