Karen, thanks a million for attaching the pix. The map is wonderful and your photo of the Cruickshank gravestone at Old Inverallan is astonishing. When we've been there my Cameron gravestone pictures haven't come out nearly as well. How did you manage to get the entire stone in with such a clear image of the inscription? Do you have some extraordinary camera or just talent? :)

I enjoyed your vignette of people swiming in the Spey and running by the river. It was sunny but quiet when we were there in June -- a scattering of fishermen, and a kingfisher that flew over our heads. It's really a serenely beautiful place.

I noticed that the Cruickshank gravestone is afflicted with the same lichen-thing that grows on so many stones there. Don't know what it is, but my husband's family graves have a bad dose of it.

One favor to ask: Could you please forward both jpgs to my email address? Had trouble saving them from the message board, so would appreciate the backup. I'll pass the pictures and your questions along to my Cruickshank friend and to two other friends who have also been working on our joint family research.

Isn't it wonderful what the Internet makes possible: you in Malaysia, my Cruickshank friend in England, two Grant friends in Scotland and Canada, and me in the United States -- all of us working on interconnected Scottish families!

Thank you again for the photo and the map and your kindness in sending them.
Cheers,
Mignon
