Dalserf, South Lanarkshire, Scotland

Margaret (Semple) Muir's father was born and married in Dalserf, Lanarkshire, Scotland. He lived most of his life there, eventually leasing the Old Swinhill Farm, which remained in the family after his death. Margaret was also born and married in Dalserf and lived there for most of her life until she immigrated to the United States.

I made a "virtual" friend several years ago on a Formula One racing forum. We got to know each other better on Facebook. I knew he lived in Scotland and was a fabulous photographer. I asked him if he would travel to Dalserf, Lanark, Scotland, to photograph the area where my great great grandparents, James Muir and Margaret Semple lived, met, married, worked and had their children before emigrating to the U.S.

Here are just some of the awesome photographs, my friend Andrew Scrogie, sent me:
