Dear Robert and David,
I have been desperately seeking DONACHIEs for some time!
My mother was a DONACHIE born Renfrewshire. Her family, (grandparents)
came in to Dunbartonshire from Nth Ireland about mid 1830s. I was
always given to understand they were nothing but Scottish and always
knew we belonged to the Robertson clan.
Her father was Robert and David is definitely a family name. Both she
and her brother immigrated to NZ in the 1930's.
If you are interested in what I have, please contact me.
Jean from New Zealand.
