« on: Thursday 03 May 18 18:52 BST (UK) »
Looking for any info at all on the family of Hugh McGill Munro who was born in Ayrshire (I think) then moved to Twechar.

1876 birth reg in Galston
1895  in Blantyre

1923 Larkhall

Which entry is he?

That would be me  ;D I've lost that site and also a bit of paper I had with the details written on. They are my granny and grandad, I was looking for my cousins who I last saw in the 1950s, they lived in Twechar.

Not my lot then, we had no Annette and they never went to England. Interesting that there's another Munro family there, thanks for this x

Hi

There is some people on Ancestry with a Daniel Munro who is related to your Munro Family.Also they have Hector Munro.I read a story about twechar on a site and they mentioned  Hector Munro.The Munro family i know had a  Daniel Munro in their family.My dad worked with their grandfather Daniel Munro from Twechar in the pit.Someone on ancestry said their was a family off 10.
