I am looking for my great grandfather's lineage. I have researched many possible lines with no luck. Here is what I am sure of : Donald Cameron Grant 's parents were Alexander and Janet Grant from the "Gore" Nova Scotia as written on Donald's marriage certificate. It's seems every Grant immigrant has an Alexander in the line. 

Grant's who 1st landed in PEI then moved to Nova Scotia claiming moving to "Gore" where family settled.

Grant's who fought  in the 84th Regiment who were granted property in the Douglas Township(included Gore) for payment after the war.

Grant's who came aboard ship "Hector".

I am unable to determine siblings of Donald Cameron Grant so am unable to verify which Alexander Grant.

ANY SUGGESTIONS would be so appreciated.wink

Hello,

My mum and I are researching Grant's from The Gore. We are direct descendents and my grandmother grew up on the Grant land grant in the Gore from the 84th. We have several Janet's and Alexander's but not alot of details of their issue. Perhaps these are the folks you are looking for?

If you can link up to the Grants that lived in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, then you are directly related to the Scottish Clan.  The Grant DNA Project has confirmed this connection.  Have you or any male Grants in your family done any DNA testing?  It would likely answer your question.  I would guess at least 90% of the Grants in Nova Scotia come from Scottish lineages, and many of those are blood-related to the Clan.
