American voice I know what you mean about the photographs, I was lucky enough to find a relative that had a cache of them. Its very strange the effect they have on you. Twenty years ago they would not have had this effect. Researchok you must tell us about the the mclain that got away.
Haggis my fraser uncles do not like the mention of "Campbell" I seem to recall them calling them the "black campbells" do you know the story behind this?

In September, 1773 about 200 immigrants arrived from Scotland on the Hector. Much of the culture of the County today can be attributed to these Scottish immigrants.
