Family History / McKinnon Family
« on: January 30, 2003, 06:57:39 AM »
I have on 2 occasions over the past 20 years been able to visit Mallaig the home of my grand father. For a New Zealander these visits to the homes of our forebears are special occasions in deed. Regretably when one is young one does not value the family history that gets lost with the years. I am trying to obtain any information about my forebears. Murdoch McKinnon & Catherine Robertson he was an overseer in the railway construction and died in Mallaig in 1938 she died soon after my grand parents and mother visited from New Zealand in 1939. They had several Children John my grandfather, Alex who ran the store at Morar for many years,Angus who worked on the railway,Annie,Flora,& Katie who I undestand for many years collected the insurance money around the district. On my first visit I enjoyed meeting Katie and her widowed sister Flora. I would appreciate any subsequent information on them. Would any photo's exist of the original builders of the railway? as we have never seen a photo of Murdoch? I look forward to in future years being able to again visit the majestic land of my forebears.
