In addition to other historic resources, the Heritage Group collection provides a rich source of family history information and detailed family trees have been made for many people.
Many families emigrated from here to Australia, Canada and the USA in the early part of the nineteenth century and we have been pleased to help many people researching their family trees over the years.
Family names common here in the early nineteenth century were:
Ballentine, Bell, Brown, Campbell, Dempster, Ferguson, Gilchrist, Hastings, Hunter, Milligan, Mitchell, Murdoch, McCormick, McCrae, McCulloch, McCutcheon, McKay, McLellan, McTurk, Weir and Wilson.
We have detailed family histories for the following names. When these are available to download, the buttons will be coloured green.
