I have a Buchanan Brick wall in my family tree I love to bust it open. See if her family in Clan Buchanan.


Maybe nice to mention here that there also is a dedicated page for the one name study Buchanan. It is fairly rudimentary for now, just listing a few profiles, but I hope this will grow with time.
