Greetings, I am looking for the family of my grandfather Harry Albert Cameron. He was born in Campbletown on June 25, 1889.His father was also Harry and was a steamship engineer. His mother was Martha McIntyre or McIntire. I know of a sister Jean and a brother David who was killed in WW1. When he came to Canada he cut off all contact with his family This is all I know about him. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Where did your information come from? Is it reliable?
I've been searching scotlandspeople.gov.uk and I *can't* find a birth record for an H Cameron or his siblings, or a marriage for his parents in Campbeltown.
