ANZAC DAY 2020. No ANZAC parade this year. All public gatherings cancelled until further notice due to COVID-19 virus. We lit a candle at dawn and placed it on our letterbox with a flag. The restaurant in our street broadcast the state service through their speakers. Our street was lined with candles, flags and poppies. Bagpipers everywhere posted tributes on social media sites and our community shared photo and video tributes on Facebook.

It is 5am Sunday 19 April 2020. Residents of New South Wales, Australia, have been instructed to remain in their homes to avoid contracting the Covid-19 virus. Police are issuing fines to people who sit on a park bench to eat their lunch. They are deemed to be endangering the health of the community. We have heard about plagues and epidemics in the past. Now we are living through one. We only venture out to buy essentials. NSW hospitals, doctors, nurses and allied professionals are working around the clock to contain the disease.

Comments on social media platforms indicate many people are using this enforced confinement to start or grow their family tree research. People want to celebrate the lives they have lived and honour those that made their lives possible.

As ANZAC day approaches, we remember the sacrifices made by our forebears to ensure our freedom from war and tyranny. As our mandatory isolation stretches out, respect and gratitude goes out to everyone making it possible for us to stay safe at home.

Hi! Peter C McIntyre is my 5x great-grandfather.

I have a family tree, handwritten by my 2x great-grandfather, James Harvey McIntyre, that starts with Peter C McIntyre at the top and goes down to my generation.

Family lore has always said that Peter C came from Glencoe or Glenoe, Scotland, but according to, he may have been born in Bennington, Vermont. Both accounts have his birth as 1755, and death as March 1820, Brookfield, Madison, New York.

I found an article from 1979 that says he came from Scotland to New York as a stow-away in a CASKET!

Family lore always said he came from Scotland to Canada to be a lumberjack, then moved south into New York at some point.

I have never been able to find out who Peter C's parents are. So that's what I'm looking for.

Thanks so much for reading! Julie

Hi Terry. Just found this group!

My Martin McIntyre married Mary McDonald in nth morar area of Inverness Scotland abt 1812. I've found about 8 children. Most seem to be dead end lines. Lachlan migrated to NSW Australia 1859 from Scotland with his wife Jean Andrew. And son William. I'm named after Lachlans daughter Margaret. Who is my G.Grandmother.

For those who see my message. Many Macintyre groups on Facebook. And Gathering in Scotland every 10 years.

I am researching Macintyre family who came to Canada about 1875 from Morvern. Recently a Scottish-born DNA match contacted me. That family also were in Morvern at the same time. Now we are working on connecting our trees.

Is there a Macintyre/McIntyre DNA study?


Yes mcintyre dna group in Familytreedna. In groups section.

Also Peter has a group on Facebook. Started of Irish mcintyres. But seems everyone there now. Val had a dna gedmatch group for the gathering. But I think it's disappeared. If on Face book. Just put Macintyre in search. And you should get up to 6 groups.

Thank you Isabel for your comment. I do not have any information on the McIntyres you mentioned, but perhaps someone with information will see your post in the future. Good luck with your search.

Kind regards Terry McIntyre

Whether or not you are a Mac Chailein, a son of Colin, or trace your roots to Mac Chalean, our ancient homelands in Argyll, Scotland, you are welcome to contribute your McIntyre and Macintyre information and profiles to this one name study. My hope is McIntyres and Macintyres from across the globe will one day stumble across this page and leave their mark here, even if it is only just to acknowledge the privilege of bearing the ancient Highland name. If you are a native Gaelic speaker please feel free to suggest corrections where necessary. My ancestors left Scotland in 1837 to emigrate to New South Wales, and even though they spoke Gaelic in my Great Grandfather’s time, my generation are not fluent in it.
