McLellan Family Tree

If you are lucky enough to have Scottish ancestry then tracing back your family tree to the early 1800's is something of a doddle. Go to http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/ and you can search the registers of births, marriages and deaths plus a load of parish registers some going back to 1553.

Mary is absolutely hooked and been doing wonderful stuff researching her family, both sides and my Dad's family. She has traced back my paternal line to my great-great-great-grandfather who married in 1817.

Going back earlier than that the chain of evidence starts to get a bit shakey but I am sure there will be more to follow...

It's not so easy if your ancestors all left the UK before 1800! :-)

Hi

Do you have any more info on Dugald (2) McLellan?

I am researching Coatbridge Cooperative Society - Dugald was one of its founder members in 1872 - known as Pioneers. Do you know which Iron works he was employed etc
