Who are these people?

Here is a collection of images that I am hoping people can help me identify. I’ll give you as much information as I can, please leave a comment if you can tell me anything about any of the pictures, especially names of people. I’ve got a biscuit tin full of negatives, mainly around Tarbert in the 1930s and 1940s.

I think this photo is taken in Tarbert. It was with others taken in the 1930’s. I have no clues about her or the cottage. She looks like she has a feather duster in her hand!

    Margaret Galbraith (and Donald) was my “niece of wife of 3rd great grand uncle” !! She is on the grave photo you have. Her husband was a fisherman.

    I have many ancestors from Gigha – I’d like to see any other photos your have.
    Best regards, David

      Hi David,

      This is a kind of life long project which I come and go from in fits and starts. So next time I have another obsessive moment, I promise I will do another section and put more photos in. Trouble is, once I get going, I tend to ignore the rest of my life, I think I get transported back to the 1700’s and live in that space! I also need to do a decent family tree to go on here somewhere. So you and I are not really related through that line, but I’m sure we would be somewhere else, everyone from Ghia is related, small gene pool!

  2. Hi Angela
    I too have old photos from Tarbert, and there is no-one in the family to ask unfortunately. My mother was born in 1921 in Tarbert and was Mary McTaggart Smith. I might doe the same and scan photos onto a blog.

      Hi Mary, sorry I hadn’t noticed your comment. Its a shame, all these people captured in photos in our old tins, and I’m sure there are family out there who would love to see them. I think the blog is the best idea so that people might be able to stumble on them. All the best, Angela
