Auchindrain connections?

Noted on the Aberdeen and North East Scotland FHS Facebook page:

"If anyone here has any connections to Auchindrain, the last uncrofted township in Argyll, I would love to hear from you.

"As part of a major project developing the future of the township museum I am working on the genealogy of all the families. We want to hear about anyone from the community.

"Also spelt : Thornfield, Achindrain, Achandryan"

If you have such a connection, the Achadh an Droighinn Folks page can be found on Facebook at http://en-gb.facebook.com/people/Achadh-An-Droighinn-Folks/100001605147913. According to its site branches of the following families are predominant from the area: McCallum, Munro, Sinclair, McNicol and Campbell.

The organiser, based in Inverary, can also be emailed at auchindrainpeople @ yahoo.co.uk

Best of luck to the project!
