I haven’t had my DNA tested (for genealogy, anyway - I did have genetic testing due to a breast cancer diagnosis 6 years ago). So I’m afraid I can’t help. However, my dad and I are having difficulty getting info on my 6th grandfather born in Islay and I wondered if you had any tips on research in that specific area outside of Scotland’s People and church records. He was kidnapped at 9 years old on an Islay beach and came to the US through NY 10 years later (1761). There are no birth records we can find, so we don’t know his parents’ names. Only that his dad was a MacQuarrie/MacQueaghrie that died in Scotland in 1746 at the age of 26. No first name known, no wife known. :( Any info on researching for Islay would be helpful!

What I don t know is how this all works together. Any one have some educational materials they can recommend?

According to my DNA my family has lots of Scots in the family.  My brother is the only surviving male from my father and mothers line.  I am trying to get him to do a DNA test thru CGI, also Ancestry & 23 and me.  He also has 2 surviving sons who are not intrested in being tested and the only reason my brother is interested is because myself and my daughters have lots of medical problems  so he said he will do it for me, Has only taken me 10 years to talk him into it.  The nearest family i have found is 1st cousin 7x removed after that there is some 3rd and several 4th

I put back what i can each month then hit them up when they go on sale.  I still need to update mine and get 4 more people done.

Many Thanks for the Good Wishes.  The whole world needs love just now, WE WILL SURVIVE, right?  With regards to the words spoken, I can only feel a tad sad that the person who spoke them didn’t think for one minute of the meaning they were portraying to others.  I would say to just disregard them and consider the source. We have all spoke out of turn sometimes, or have had some one take a meaning different than we intended.  NO ONE is Scotland is ‘weird’ by any stretch of the imagination!  I have missed you folks on the list, and wonder what happened to you all.  God Bless ALL of you as we fight to get thru this pandemic.  It won’t be a Happy one for many of us, but we still need to care for those who are close to us and who we can help.  Love is what makes the world go round, right?

Re: 4 itms broadcasted

Anne Burgess
 

I certainly won't get hot under the collar about it, and I am sure that it was never intended to be offensive. As I said, **faintly** offensive.

Nevertheless some one out there at FS thinks that the language we use is 'weird'. Whether they understand 'weird' to mean uncanny or eerie, or bizarre, or peculiar, or strange, doesn't really matter. What matters is that yet again, someone has linked the concept of 'weird' with the context of 'Scotland'. Which says a lot about the writer's view of the world and not a lot about their sensitivity.

My second great grandfather John McKay of Welland (who had immigrated to Canada from Scotland) married a Mary Buchanan of Dunnville in 1873. I have not been able to find much about her family, so if there is any chance she is of your Buchanans please let me know. It’s been years since my research, but my notes say that these Buchanans were Irish, but Methodist, which at the time led me to believe they were probably from Northern Ireland.
