Hello,

I too have ancestors from Cameron clan, originating in Scotland.  I have uploaded some source photos to the profile https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cameron-6336 .  This brief description may be of interest to you:  https://www.wikitree.com/photo/jpg/Cameron-6336-2

Unfortunately I would not consider this an "official source" as it came from a family tree handed down to me - but the information is certainly interesting. I also have some more information about the Camerons from Islay of Scotland (not uploaded), including brief history of the area, if you're interested.

Hi Mary and Welcome

I see you are new here, the first thing to do is follow the link in the comments on your profile "New Member How To", lots of good start up information will help you.

Then, start entering the information you know about you ancestors - first your parents, then grandparents, and so on. As you work on those profiles you will become familiar with WikiTree.

The way to attach to someone 6 generations back is by building up to that generation - finding and adding ancestors.

Another hint is to use the "Find" menu and select "Surname" then follow the instructions. I am sure you will find many Camerons and Burns already here.

Please always come back to G2G with any questions you have. Here╩╗s another link that might help.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:How_to_Use_WikiTree

Do you have the birth year, location (country, county and or city), and full name of your most recent Cameron ancestor?  The same type of question for your most recent Burns ancestor would also be something to pose in a question. If you know the parents, that can be included as well.
