This website is a work in progress.
Please refer back occasionally as new information will be added periodically.
The contents is intended as a means of providing extended family members in Britain, Scotland, Canada, U.S.A. & of course Australia; with photos, ancestral and otherwise, that they may not have seen.
You can see an enlargement of the pictures by clicking on the smaller version.
Please feel free to comment, or correct any errors I may have made.
Unfortunately our forebears did not often write details or dates on the back of their photos.
Identification often involves considerable detective work.
If you can identify any of the photos with missing names, please let me know.
If you have any ancestor photos not included here, please may I have a copy so that I can include them.
I also have a computerised version of the Macfarlane/Scott family tree with over 1200 names in it. Of course it needs updating constantly with births and deaths etc. (it is currently a bit out of date), If you can provide any new information, I would be most grateful. My computer is an Apple Macintosh, but I can provide (and receive) family tree data in gedcom format, which is platform independent. (Of course you can just email me the details and/or pictures.)
I also have quite a few letters written by Macfarlane family members in the U.K. and Canada - mostly between Thomas Macfarlane and his sisters. I have included one from Thomas Macfarlane to one of his sisters in 1882. Can you work out which sister? If you find it difficult to read, I can email you a transcribed version, but the original hand writing still has a charm about it. The original itself is now very delicate and I have it in a plastic sleeve.
I would hate these photos and letters of your own relatives, mostly from the century before last, to not be seen and enjoyed by those who may be interested.
Please let any other extended family members know about this website.
