Dear Veronica,
I found your name on the Noticeboard of Mallaig Heritage Centre Home Page. I have been researching my Macdonald heritage, and my great-grandfather's mother, Catherine McDonald, married Angus/Andrew Gillies and bore him two daughters. I have come into a blank wall because there is no baptism certificate for John Francis McDonald who was born about 1835, whose father's name was John, and mother's maiden name was Catherine McDonald. The two Gillies daughters' certificates are included in church records. Catherine and Angus/Andrew (depending on which records one reads) must have married soon after John's birth, possible late 1837. I hope you may have some answers, but if not, it would be good to hear from you. We love the Mallaig area when we visited it two years, and would dearly love to return.
Regards, Patricia and Shaun Mitchell.

To all my old friends in Mallaig, It's been nearly 40 years since I left for New Zealand, but I am still a Mallaig village girl at heart. When I left home for the final time I was 19 years of age, but am now the mother of 5 children (four daughters - Marie, Angela, Jacqui, and Roni-Anne, and a son Robert (named after Robert Hannah), and am married to Maurice. My regards to my friends - the Smith family, the Johnson family, Bunty McDougall (nee Muir) and family, and all the other friends I knew in the village. To the friends left in Mallaig a hello from New Zealand. I am staying for a week at Angela's home in Auckland, helping her with her twins - Hannah (named after May Hannah) and Keegan. Angela has been reading me an excerpt from her diary of her and Michael's travels and their 4 days spent in Mallaig with you all in '93; with Bunty, Christine King, Charlie and 'old Charlie', Alan Johnson and people they met, and how welcoming everybody was to them. It brought back lots of memories for me. As old Rogie Gillies would say "the Mallaig people are the salt of the earth". If anyone would like to drop us a line please send a message to my daughter's email address. "Haere Ra" from New Zealand - Veronica Gillies

Hi John, I was looking at the Mallaig web site to get some info for friends who are taking a trip in March. I had forgotten about the notice board as I have'nt been on the site for ages. I'm still in Northwich and my mum is very well. We go up to Mallaig twice a year, ME driving. I retired a LONG time ago,(worked for the right company). I had a rental business for many years and sold it this year so that's my pension fund.
I still have to contact David Duncan again. Hope you get this OK and I will try and remember to visit the site more often
