Here are some genealogy contributions and/or E-mail links to those people who have contacted me regarding specific surnames.  In some cases the contributed files are in GEDCOM (.ged) format which can be imported into most common genealogy software programs:

Harrison, Mary - doing research for a friend, Graham Benson Haines, who was born in Western Australia and came to Victoria, B.C. in 1947. His G-Grandmother was Christina Tulloch, born 1842 in Eday. Her parents were John Tulloch and Ann Angus. Orkney names of interest include: TULLOCH, ANGUS, MUIR, PEACE, DEARNESS, BEGG, DREVER.  Download Mary's Gedcom file Haines.ged or E-mail her mkharr@mail.island.net

Johnston, Richard  -  provided his entire family tree gedcom including his Orcadian connections.  Richard's grandfather (his father's father, James Johnston) left Orkney for Canada in 1922.   Orcadian researchers should follow his patralinial tree back to his Orcadian connections.  Download Richard's Gedcom file Johnston.ged  or the compressed, executable version Johnsged.exe.   E-mail  richardj@golden.net
