    Thanks for following my blog, Flora. I’m always interested in learning more about Scotland. My father’s mother family came from there in the 1780s. They are McDonalds.

      Thanks Diane. I’m fascinated by all the Scots who moved to Canada in the 18th and 19th centuries – one day I’d love to visit some of the communities in which they settled.

    I am a distant cousin of Captain Daniel Gordon Cameron and was really interested in seeing information in your book . Thank you. His first cousin is,my 3x great grandfather who pioneered farms in South Gippsland Austraila and used to correspond with Daniels family .

      Hi Anne, thanks for getting in touch. I’m really interested to hear that Daniel Gordon Campbell is still remembered. What was the name of your ancestor who emigrated? I think Gordon (he was known by his middle name) had a brother who was also killed in WWI, I don’t know if there were any others. The scrapbook I have is full of tributes to him, and also some photos of his sporting achievements. I’d love to know any more information you have about the family. If you send me a message via the contact page I can email you privately. Flora
