Hi Joan,

I know that you may be of the impression that the trail has gone cold ref; the date of the msg. However I have only started trying to trace my ancestors. Reading your message re:

Judith and James Gallacher query, leaves me in no doubt that the James Gallacher married to Elizabeth Shaw in Melbourne is my ggg/grandfathers son.

Alf Gallacher,

Greenock,
Scotland.

Hi Joan,

My E.mails forwarded in July would have left in doubt that the enquirer would have received authoritive info as to their quest.

I to would have got some leads that would have assisted me in my quest in tracing my gg/grandfathers family.

Hi Alf:
I am just getting started with my family tree and I have received some information from Scotland that my great grandparent, Edward Shevlin who died 1904, married Margaret Gallacher in 1867 and that they had ten children. Edward's Shevlin's father was Peter Shevlin who died in 1871. I cannot get further information prior to Peter Shevlin as there was not a name on the death certificate.

Is there a connection, and would Margaret Gallacher be part of your tree??

Hi Barbara,
Have not come across a Margaret Gallacher in my Grandfather's family, However there could be a connection with the Shevlins.My g/fathers wife was a Shevlin. Her fathers name was Lachlan Shevlin. Pity you cannot get the any names on Peter's death certificate. If I can be of assistance in obtaining info locally. Feel free.

Alf.

Thank you Alf for responding to my message. I am waiting for a transcript from Scotland sometime this week with any information on "Peter Shevlin" who died in 1971. As soon as I receive it, I will let you know the details and yes, any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Barbara

I am looking for James Gallacher born around 1821 married to Bridget (Queen?). They had a son Charles born around 1845 married to Mary Ann Gallacher whose father was Peter Gallacher. Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thought it was odd Charles and Mary Ann both had Gallacher as a last name.
