first of all I would like to say its been great reading all the entries about Catrine. My mum was born in Scotland my nan was Catherine McColl. I have been trying to do my family tree so would love any info anyone has about the McColl family. Sadly my mum passed away 2006 her name was Martha born 1935. Any information would be fantastic. Also as im here does anyone know Thomas Jackson my dad he passed away 1970 age 37. As both parents and grandparents are deceased its hard to find anything out. thankyou so much .

Hello,
My name is Nancy born in Glasgow now living in Toronto.
My Granny Kerr lived in Drongan. Once on holiday I had toothache and we went up to Dr McCrae and he took the tooth out for me never felt a thing he was ever so gentle he said when you go out you will see a shooting star and we did. I have never forgot his name and today I came across your site and here was his picture what a nice surprise. Loved your site keep up the good work. Best wishes. Nancy. :)

The web site looks great Rab. I am particularly interested in seeing Frances McCrae's family information as my Grandfather was a great friend of Dr McCrae. He was a very gentle and sympathetic Doctor - very important when dealing with a young patient. My memories are also of Dr Alan, who was perhaps, more robust in his manner when dealing with young patients. One of the old school, as they used to say!

I saw Dr. McCrae reference and wanted to know if anyone knows me or remembers me. I lived in Mauchline Rd. I had an aunty Molly, uncle Sam, and an aunty Lizzie who had kids,her married name was Dunlop,sons name Jimmy. Does anyone know of this?

Admin reply: Of course we remember you Esther. You are in 4 different school pictures I have. One on page 2 and 2 on page 3 that Margaret Cairns sent me. Just noticed you are also in one on page 4 which has Francesca Haliday, Nicola Benedetti's mother on the front row on the right. Your Aunt Molly and uncle Sam and Sadie were always good company in the local club and Jimmy Dunlop was our next door neighbour in Shawlands street for many years.
Rab.

I have really enjoyed reading your site. This is the only way I have found to contact you. My father was Dr McCrae and he died 17th July 2012 aged 96. He joins my sister Wendy who died 9th May, 2002 and my mother, Eileen who died 20th July, 2006.

Dad will I'm sure be remembered by many of the 'older' residents of Catrine. There is so much of his story to tell but no space here. He was a GP in Catrine for 40years and during that time was honoured by the Queen with a CBE .

I have looked through all the school photos and see my brother Iain who has been in New Zealand for the last 40 years and sister Madeleine who lives in Fenwick.

How do I send any photos which may be of interest ?

Admin reply: If you want to send any pictures you can contact me anytime by emailing rab@rabs.co.uk

I was looking thru you guestbook and noticed an entry from another former Teen Missions member in 1978. I was at the old Daldorch estate in the summer of 1981 and loved that old house. On my free time I would walk across the bridge to a local fish and chips eatery. Loved my time in Scotland and wish I had done my family history before I was there at the age of 18. I am now 50 and my family names are Kelso,(Tarbet to Torbett), Wallace, Neil, Carolton, McDonald (no Campbells yet), at this point. The Torbett/Tarbet family came from Kilmarnoch. I would love to come back to Scotland to spend some time...who know maybe I will get a chance to return to Catrine. Would love that. Thanks for the web site and the fond memory of younger days and travel to your wonderful part of the world.
