Looks like Ian has already got an answer to the query, judging by the posts in http://westernisles.wordpress.com/emigration/ yesterday

There is also a good bit of interesting correspondence on this site http://westernisles.wordpress.com/emigration/ and you will no doubt get a good deal of help from Donald MacFarlane who hosts http://www.scotlandgenweb.org/westernisles/index.html

Hi Iain,

I have a fair amount of the previous generations on my family tree. Send me a pm through the site and I'll send what I've got.

Best regards,

Iain
