Dear Eduardo

I too am a great grandson on Dr Walter Leckie and have heard your name from Audrey Leckie (my Aunt in Richmond). I have spent the past few hours looking at all the messages on the geneolgy site and am amazed with how far the net spreads!

My father Peter James Lyndsey Leckie is the eldest son of Vivien Leckie. One of the children from Dr Walter's second marriage (Although I was always under the impression that he never married a second time - did he definately divorce and re marry?)

I would be really interested in any information that you have or copies of any photos from the South American side of the family. Can I see the website you refer to in your email to Derek Leckie?

Also have you established any connection with Jason Leckie who was looking for an Argentinian connection. The reference to a book wriiten by Dr Leckie "My wonderous and illustrious life" sounds facinating d you know whether it still survives?. Also do you know if the book you referred to about the "first white women in Africa" is still in print?

I look forward to hearing from you. As we have the same relation to Dr Leckie does that make us cousins?

I am 39 years old, married with 2 children (India - 8 & Felix 3), we live in Newark in Nottinghamshire, England.

Best wishes

Justin
