I'm trying to trace back from my paternal great grandfather Andrew Shaw who arrived in New York sometime around 1880 from Scotland aboard the SS Ansonia (I believe was the name of the ship) his listed occupation on the passenger list was house painter. I tried Ancestry.com a while back but found nothng conclusive. a possible "hit" was a John Shaw born in Perth 1806 as his father but there was no real proof of this connection other than the names. What or where should I try next? I have no idea if andrew had siblings and only vaguely rememebr my grandfather Howard Shaw (son of Andrew) had a brother named Donald. Any ideas greatly appreciated.
