Hi, I am Michael Gunn and my father was Lawson who visited Glasgow in 1956/57.
My dad passed away 7 years ago in Cape Town. I am the eldest of 3 boys and we are spread around the world. I live in New York, my youngest brother is in Dubai and the middle one is still in South Africa. I would be more that happy to share information and chat, especially, since my wife has been dabbling in putting the family tree together.

Hi Michael, Delighted to hear from you. I can remember meeting your father when he was here in 1956/57., though I was only a child at the time. My grandfather was Angus Gunn, born 1880 and elder brother to your grandfather Lawson.You may know your grandfather was one of 15 children and their parents were full cousins. His mother being one of thirteen children. You will see we are surrounded by Gunn's. I have carried out a lot of research on the families and would be delighted to share it with you and your wife . If you wish to contact me direct my address is candimac@talktalk.net and I will be pleased to send you family details. I have recently been in touch with Dacie Gunn's family in British Columbia, he was the youngest brother who also went to S.Africa, but that is another story!!!
Hope to speak soon
Christine
