Re: Could your family have lived in Iona?

Hello Doug and thanks for your comments. I dont see the two subjects DNA/Genealogy as opposed to each other but as complimenting one another.

Re: Morrison of S. Uist and Benbecula

Thanks for your information. Seeing that we share the same group, I thought it might be interesting to post some information which I noticed a long time ago. As far as I am aware I have no ancestral connection with South Uist, but noticed years ago a picture in a book Folk Lore and Folksongs from So...

Re: Could your family have lived in Iona?

Doug I got one of the bigger surprises when my family with help of Ian Morrison was traced back to Galloway, in the most Southerly parish of Scotland though with a 17th centuary connection with Argyll.

Could your family have lived in Iona?

There is a most interesting Volume of the Scottish Record Society which details those who lived on the estates of the Duke of Argyll in 1779. Its like an early census and is invaluable in detailing all the people who would otherwise not appear in anything other than estate rentals. Details and tradi...

Re: Morrison's or Morison's from Kent or Argyllshire

Hello Matthew the Morrisons were common in the parishes of Lochgoilhead and Kilmorich, Inverary and Glenaray from early times and are likely to have had no connection with the Lewis family at all.
