I have researched my family history on and off for many years. Over that time I have collected a lot of data but very few links to living relatives, except the Martins in Australia and more recently my newly discovered Martin relatives in Pennsylvania. My ancestors were all from Scotland but managed to spread out across the globe. I have found them in Scotland, Australia, South Africa, Canada, United States, New Zealand and even into Russia. 

The main names are Martin, Blair, Dewar, Proudfoot and Stewart.

Have a look through at your leisure and see if you can connect to any of my family.

My Ancestors leading back to the 17th century

These families came from Caithness, Stirlingshire, Perthshire, Renfrewshire and Argyllshire

Going back for 10 generations

It's too small I know but I am working on it. This goes back 10 generations. Try saving it to your computer and then using the zoom from your own imaging program.
