    I am hoping to meet other family members there in Argyll. I am a direct descendent of Archibald Greenlee and Jane Giffen Greenlee who came to the sates in about 1775 from Argyll, Campbeltown. If anyone can help me in that area I would really appreciate it. Unable to find Scottish records here in the states.
    My dream is to somday visit the land of my ancestors!!!

    Hi Kate...actually, we discovered that the original spelling was Greenlees. Somewhere onlong the line, with a deed dispute here in the states, the s was dropped off and thats how we became Greenlee. I would absolutely love any help you can give me....looking forward to heariing from you...

    hi kathy ive got my aunt doing some diggin around for you. she may take a while but shes more than happy to be of help. mrs greenlees who taught me in school was old when she taught me in my first yr at junior school and that was 1961!!. she was from an area called southend which is ten miles from campbeltown. she had a daughter jane i think but im not sure beyond that. i will do what i can and get back to you as soon as i have any info or addresses which may be of help to you. i hope your having a fab summer and are all well. have you looked at www.campbeltown.com or visit kintyre.com you,ll see some lovely pictures on there. you can also contact kintyre forum and leave a message for any members of the greenlees family to contact you. my friend in the states who was lookin for me had her son leave a message there. my cousin saw it,told me and the rest is history!. kintyre forum is a very good site and helpful. www.kintyreforum.co.uk good luck will be in touch soon. kate
