Would this be Murdo Macsween from Galtrigil just past Borreraig? If so I used to visit him when I was a wee girl and help him milk his cow. Effie is supposed to be related to me through the Maclean Family from Galtrigil.

Yes it is the Murdo MacSween from Galtrigil, Effie was also related to me.

Hello Hector. Murdo had a brother Sween who was a Captain with CalMac on the Clyde. My father was Captain Malcolm Maclean and his Maclean Family came from Galtrigil and Borreraig and then the Fergusons from Fasach. I was told by Marjorie McInnes who lives in Claighan and does genealogy that I am related to Effie through the Macleans. My father never explained all the connections to me. Also Katie Macleod from Borreraig might be a cousin? Do you live on Skye? I have American friends out her near Seattle who are related to a Neil Campbell from Gatrigill along with a lady in Australia who I met through Facebook.

Would you be Hector Maclean Campbell that is a cousin of Stacy, Debbie and Shannon out here in Seattle? I am friends with them on Facebook!

Maybe better if you conduct your dialogue direct rather via the Comments.
