My old guestbook from Lycos was discontinued but all the old entries are saved. Just click the above link to see all the Older Guestbook entries. This is my new guestbook. Please let me know if you have any difficulty using it. I have allowed email addresses to be shown as some people like to make contact through the guestbook with other people who may know them or have some information to share about old friends, family trees etc'
Of course there is no requirement for an email address. You only need to enter it if you wish to communicate with others who can access this guestbook. All private entries will only be accessed by myself and I will not share your contact details with anyone.

Admin reply: I am trialing this questbook in an open manner to see how effective the antispam methods are. Sometimes they simply discourage people from using it. I have kept them as simple as possible so hopefully I won't need to remove them and go back to having to approve every entry before it is shown. Thank you for your continued support.
Rab. :!cool:

Was looking at your web page as my father was originally from Catrine. You can imagine my surprise and delight to see a picture of my dad amongst your photographs .He is standing 3rd from the left with his arms folded. He left Catrine to join the army, married my mum and lived in London for many years. Moved back to Ayr and died in 1986. Thank you again for bringing back lovely memories of a really nice dad.

Admin reply: I have since had contact from your Daughter and now have named your dad in the photo of Ayrbank.Thanks again for your interest.

Hi Rab, Just browsing your great site again and can see so much has been added. We left Catrine in 1960.I am doing a family tree for our wee Grandson and have discovered that my Great Grandfather on Mum’s side came to Catrine from Northampton--don't quite know why. They owned a shoe factory in Northampton, They live don St Cuthbert's Street until Mum and Dad married and then moved to Shawlands Street. My Grandmother was Elsie Langley. I remember that our neighbours were the Stirlings, Mary Marion and a brother whom I can't remember the name of. My parents fostered Marion when their parents died until Mary came back from India. Then it was the Elliots, Peggy and Brusher and their family. It would be good to know if anyone is still there. Can I thank you for all your work on the site; you have given so much information to so many people. I hope you keep up the good work. It is very interesting.

Wonderful site. Accessible and friendly with a wealth of gems. I am researching my great grandfather William Stevens, (C1866). So most references are a bit late for me but fascinating none the less.

I had a friend in the RSF who, I think, came from Catrine or Sorn. His name was Archie Mcfadyen. Are there any McFadyens still in the area?
If you are interested I have a picture or two of him during the Army days.

Hello Rab,

My 2X Great Grandfather was John Lyle, a Catrine labourer who died in 1909 at the Catrine expo farm (?) from an accident with a horse pulling a hay rake.
His son (my Great grandfather), George Haining Lyle came to Pennsylvania in 1882 as a Carnegie steelworker.
I am hoping to find relatives and photographs of John, George, and other 1880 - 1900 Lyle family members from Catrine to share with my Dad. He turned 95 last September and tells stories of Catrine told to him by his grandfather (George Haining Lyle).
Cheers!
Jonathan Lyle
