I sent you a private e'   yes, I would like to be included in the  PIT  group... My Scotch-Irish  is the Greer-Grierson---et al Thank  you for finding me.  Carole
I have a lot of Scottish in me. My mother was a McFadden, whose family came from Ireland to Lanarkshire and then to America around 1900; her mother was a Howie from Ayrshire; her mother was McIntosh from Inverness-shire; McCall from Lanarkshire; French from Ayrshire;  On my dad's side, almost everyone is Irish.

I would like to join the Bute Profile. My earliest sourced Ancestor comes from Arran in county Bute, Peter Kerr MacBryde (other possible spellings are MacBride or McBride) born 6 Sep 1801, died 10 Jul 1875. Peter was born as MacBride most likely in Shannochie/Shennachie on the south end of Arran. Death notice has him as Peter Kerr Macbryde. Portsmouth, Kingston Cemetery records: Peter Kerr MacBryde 1800-1875.

Peter's father was most likely Thomas McBride, mother Margaret MacDouglad.

However, MyHeritage Family Trees, has this record: "Mary MacBryde (born Adams) married John MacBryde.They had one son: Peter Kerr MacBryde".

I am keen to find the correct parents of Peter.

Hi my name is Jo, I'm very keen to see what ancient clan we come from.  Clan names traced to late 1600 Shaw, McKee, Thomson, McIntosh.  Mostly from Ayrshire, Dunfermline, Killwinning, Dumbartonshire.  I also have Sinclair, Whitelaw and Cumming, O'Connell to look for!.  I would dearly love to trace the Shaws back as far as I can for my dear dad who is 85.  I am also visiting Scotland in 2 years so want to go to the best place to pay my respects. thanks you for reading
Hi Jo - I'm a member of Clan Mackintosh of North America. My great grandmother was a McIntosh and I've done extensive work on her line. I've also got other McIntosh lines. I have several of the clans that you mention, including some Shaws (mostly 1600s and 1700s). I went to Scotland in 2005 and spent 3 weeks there - one week with a tour, and the rest of the time on my own. The first weekend in August is the Moy Fair at Moy Hall, which is the seat of the Mackintosh Clan in Scotland. They don't emphasize the Mackintosh Clan as much as they do Clan Chattan, which the Mackintoshes have been the head of fo a couple hundred years. Clan Chattan is a confederation of clans. Anyway, my email is ghparalgl@yahoo.com if you want to discuss anything more. I also have a huge tree on Ancestry.com - Andrews Family Tree owner ghparalgl.

I have been building my tree for over a year now, and have taken the Ancestry DNA test. I knew  I was Irish/English/Scottish, but apparently I am quite a bit! Since then, I have researched and have discovered I am clan Stuart/Campbell. I am learning so much and love learning how we are all related somewhere in this big beautiful tree of life! I would love to join the Scottish Project to learn more, and build my skills as a geneologist.

Hi

My ancestors are more Scottish than I appreciated. Houatsones (clan McDonald) & McTaggarts (clan Ross) I believe. Thinking I could learn something by researching something.
Hi Ken

My great grandfather emigrated from Edinburgh to the United States in the 1860s. After 10 years, I am migrating my family tree from Ancestry, with my sources being a combination of original documents, and Ancestry, Scotland's People, Roots Ireland, and other sources. My Scotland family branch reaches into the 1600s, so I'd like to join the Pre-1700 (and since!) Scotland Project. Cheers!

After submitting my DNA, I was informed that I am 23% Ireland and Scotland.  This, along with being told by my grandmother that we are part of the McClaren Clan,  has piqued my interests to look further into my heritage.  I have run into brick walls in reference to my great-great grandparents coming from Scotland in the 1700's.

My birth father was Morrison, and DNA confirms Scottish roots.   However, am stuck in the US with my 3x Great Grandfather Nathaniel Morrison abt. 1790 Morrison-4474 who married Hannah Marie Austin.  Y-DNA shows related to the Iredell, NC Morrison's someplace. Would love to break the brick wall ! Also have several other branches of the tree, Caudill-Caudle-Cawdor (was spelling in Scotland) is a main branch of my 1X great grandmother's family.  They still have a castle there would love to visit.  Would like to join please, for any help could receive with the connections.

Between 1805-1832 the state of Georgia used seven land lotteries to give most of the land.  This required more surveyors, so Norman McRaeny a surveyor from Isle of Skye moved, married and stayed.  He is one of my great grandfathers, and I want to learn more and research that part of the family.
