My grandmother sailed from Capetown around 1901 to Melbourne on the SS Runic. I can find evidence of her returning on this ship in 1902 (where her 14month old daughter died on board), but not of her leaving Capetown. Can you help please.

Sorry didn't mention that my grandmother's name was Annastasia Michelson and the children's names were Andrew (aged 2) and Ada Helene (under 1). Travelling from Capetown to Melbourne on SS Runic sometime in 1901.

I have a transcript of a Diary my grandfather kept on his voyage ahead of his family to Australia. 1 June 1912 to Melbourne 16 July 1912. Very interesting reading.
