The Lambie Photograph Page

Updated September 15, 2014

I am researching my Lambie ancestors from Scotland. During this work I have collected a number of photographs and papers that may be of interest to other researchers.

The purpose of this site is to share this resource with others having an interest with the Lambie surname and its variants.

This site is dedicated to my father Douglas Lambie and brother Ian Lambie who are no longer with us and have been my inspiration for embarking on this journey.

New material is always being added so visit again soon.
