Hi Elizabeth and welcome to the UK and Scotland Projects.
Hi Amanda and welcome to the Scottish Clans Project.
I would like to join the Scotland Project and the Scotland Clan - ARMSTRONG.  I am a descendant.  

I was also wondering if there was anything for Brasher.  My maternal Grandmother was a Brasher who was from England

I am looking to increase my family information
I see you have Scots-Irish, but nothing assigned as a project. Do you have any idea when that one would start?

Also, what, exactly, is meant by the phrase? Asking because I'm Glasgow-Irish -- the Irish that migrated to Scotland instead of everywhere else. If it fits that, it's perfect :D

 

ETA: Oh! And I have a special interest in Linlithgowshire. A lot of my family, like my Great Grandmother, came from there.
Hi Norma and welcome to the UK, Scotland and Scottish Clans Projects.
Hi Eileen.   Scots-Irish and Ulster Scots refer to the Plantation of Ulster in the early17th Century.  Here's a link to our project page  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Scots-Irish_and_Ulster_Scots  Descendants of many of these immigrants moved on to USA.   

Like you my Maxwell Irish ancestors moved from Ireland to Glasgow c 1875.  Spookily enough I now live in West Lothian which was previously called Linlithgowshire !!    

I would say that your best match project wise are the Scotland and Irish Roots Projects.   If you agree I'll sort the badges for you.  Scotland Project is part of umbrella UK Project - Irish Roots has it's own badge.
Hi My name is Lori Bast. I would like to join the Scotland project as I am a descendant of the Elliot clan. I am currently researching my family history of the Elliot Clan, kaey family and our direct link to King Charles II.
Hi Lori,  So that we can welcome you into the Scotland or Scottish Clans Projects I need you to sign our honour code.   It's just a click.   Follow this link to do this https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Member_Types   Thanks.
Hello, recently discovered through DNA testing and family research that my maiden name comes from the Dennistons / Dennistouns who settled in Ulster from Scotland (Dunbarton/Renfrewshire).  I'd love to join this group.

Hi Pam and welcome to the UK and England Projects.
I would like to join the UK and England Projects. My haplogroup/type is R-Z16502.  This haplogroup is found in Northamptonshire, Bedford, and Derbyshire. According to genetic genealogists, my father's side of the family lived in England for 4,000 years before moving to Accomack Co, VA, USA in 1636.

I am naturally interested in assisting with the England project. Being that substantial branch of my royal family extends into the reaches of Greater London, I am happy to volunteer.  Thank you.

Hello!

I am not sure which project or sub-project I would fit best with. My interest currently lies with tracing my Irish Quaker ancestors back into northern England where they (presumably) originated.
Open to suggestions!
answered Nov 12, 2017 by Glenn Dixon G2G2 (2,780 points)
Hi Glenn,  Sorry for the delay in picking up your post.   Can I suggest the Irish Roots Project initially then the  United Kingdom Project plus England sub project.

See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Irish_Roots and

Just let me know  and I'll sign you up !!

I would like to join the Scottish Clans project.  My Montgomery family ancestors were on the Isle of Islay for at least 5 generations, is there any sub-group focused on Islay?
answered Nov 15, 2017 by Michael Montgomery G2G Crew (800 points)
Hi Michael and welcome to the Scottish Clans Project.    Here's a link to our Clan Montgomery page.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Clan_Montgomery  Would you like to sponsor this page and help develop it.    I'm more familiar with the Montgomerys  of Renfrewshire having lived and worked near Eaglesham for a few years.  

I'm not aware of a one place study on Islay see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:One_Place_Studies  for how to start one.

I would like to join the Ulster Scots subproject.  Please let me know how to do this.
answered Nov 16, 2017 by Abby
Hi Abby,   Can I suggest that the Irish Roots Project might be more appropriate to your research.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Irish_Roots  The Ulster Scots Project is concerned with the Plantation of Ulster in the 17th century.   I see you are still working on tracing your Irish ancestors in the 19th century.   Just a thought.
Thank you for your help, Maria.

Hi there, I have lots of irons in the fire in the UK but at this particular moment my focus is on Scotland - Rae and Yorkston in Larbert, Stirlingshire. I've just had to a do a little mini surname study to figure out how the Yorkstons (Yorkstone, Yorstoun(e), Yourstoun(e), Yorstan, Yorston) made their way from Edinburgh/Midlothian to Falkirk and then Larbert. Don't think there's a sub-project for these Lowlanders ;-)

Adding my own branches will keep me busy for a while but just wanted to let you know what I was up to.

So yes, I would be interested in joining the UK project, esp. the County of Kent. That is where all my ancestors came from on my father's side. We have taken the tree back to the early 1600s, possibly earlier. I lived in the UK for seven years, and have been to the area where my great grandparents were born and from where they emigrated to Canada ~ Doddington & Newnham area. I also wrote and printed a book on the history of our family, which will soon be available online. It covers a lot of the history from Kent. So how can I help, since I am not living in the UK at present? Hope to go back next year, God willing. Cheers,

Steve MAXTED

answered Nov 17, 2017 by George Maxted G2G1 (1,150 points)
Hi George and a warm welcome to the UK and England Projects.    The England Project leader or coordinator will be in touch shortly.
Hi, there are quite a few of us not living in the UK. With the internet, that isn't an impediment to being involved! We could manage another helper in Kent. So thank you ... that would be fabulous. I'll get that set up for you.
Didn't think it would be. But I do have a special entry card to the Canterbury Cathedral Archives, where many of the Kent County records are kept, so we have plenty of resource contacts over there. If I can't access the necessary info personally, I am in touch with folks who can. The history of Kent itself is fascinating!

I would like to join the Scottish Clans project please. My Scottish heritage includes Clan Donald of Argyle and Bute as well as some branches from Sleat. Leitch and Campbell are also a part of my Scottish heritage but not as strongly.

 

Thanks,
