Ken,
Merry Christmas.
My paternal grandmother is descended fro two McNabb families who came from Islay and settled in Simcoe Ontario some time around 1830. I have not been able to connect them to a family in Islay. Andrew McNabb, b.1777, his wife Catherine Matheson, b. 1879, children: Findlay McNabb, 1813, Duncan McNabb b. 1810, James McNabb b.c. 1815. Would you have a connection?

Donald,
It was indeed a farm, in the south of the island, and where several generations of my ancestry lived, from at least the late 1700s to mid 1800s.  They were tenant farmers and there were several families living and working on the farm at any given time.  Mine left for Canada in mid 1800s, while cousins stayed on Islay to the present time.
My lot were mainly McNabb (various spellings) and McVoran (various spellings, and anglicized in the early 1800s by some family groups to Morrison).  At least one branch in Ontario married a Young (perhaps yours).  I don’t have my data open right now, and seem to be a bit tied up with another event, but would be interested in pursuing this with you later.
Merry Christmas and a Vaccinated New Year!

Hi all;

I have ancestors who lived at Ballicatrigan on the island of Islay in the 1790's.  I presume this is the name of a farm. Has anyone researched the name, and/or prepared a history of settlement there?
Thank you.

Hi Barbara

Have you run the picture through Google images to see if there is a match?  I tried, but the scan was too small to get any useful results, but a higher resolution file might get better results.

You could also try this website - http://www.tartansauthority.com/tartan-ferret/ - if the search facility cannot identify the tartan, you could try emailing them a copy of the image to see if they can give you any help.

I received this photo from a relative's estate.  Any suggestions for identifying this mystery man?  The photo is quite small: slightly less than 2" x 4" and it's printed on photographic paper not a thick card.  It probably dates from the late 1800s to early 1900s.  The photo is marked "Chief Hugh Fraser," but representatives of Clan Fraser and Clan Fraser of Lovat have told me he is not one of their people.  One suggestion was the tartan looked like McKenzie.  If it helps, my family was mainly from Glasgow, Dumbfries-shire, and Renfrewshire.  Their surnames were Fletcher, Richardson, and Graham.  Many thanks.

Wow, he's very distinguished looking with all the regalia. If there's a Clan association in the US, perhaps you can run it by the clan genealogist/historian to see if they can identify him.

Hi Barbara,
Is there any way you can get a higher resolution scan of the photo?

I can't get close enough to be able to make out the cap, or shoulder, badges without massive pixelation.

Yes, nice find.....I’m wondering if someone wrote “Chief....” on it implying he was the eldest of the family in the USA......most of us would say Matriarch of the family, but maybe someone else had a different thought........  Just trying to think outside the box..maybe it was
all in jest?  He looks like he has been well fed and is a healthy sort.  Goldie

Re: Thomson/Thompson in the Borders of Scotland.

My bad for not noting what that film name was. I am still waiting for some of my family to answer if they remember. I had posted it on our old My Family site which has gone away. I have some feelers out and hope someone else noted it. I am positive I included the source when it was posted to our old family site. This has been an excellent lesson to me. I have the copies I made when I viewed them but there's no information as to what the film name was. It seems odd that same film would not be listed now. I am wondering if I tried calling family search or in an email if they could tell me?
