Name: John Gourlay
Born: Melbourne, Australia
Current Location: Australia

Born of an English mother and Scottish father in Australia, all my family history research has me spending far too many hours [according to my wife] at the computer. The Gourlays were a Fife family until great grandfather swam the Tay and set up in the Dundee area. My grandmother was an Angus Meffan with the earliest I can find [ 5th great grand parents] originating in Arbroath.
