Hello, I'm looking for any information on who my McDonald ancestor might be. I was told bits and pieces of my heritage from my family but I can't seem to work out  my McDonald heritage. On my grandfathers birth register it only lists his mothers surname McDonald and there is no first name. My grandfather was born in 1913 in Middlesex, London and his last name is White. I have been told that I have Scottish heritage so I am assuming I am from the McDonalds' from Scotland. If anyone has any information pertaining to this topic please help me out.

This is one tough family to figure out! At least for my Mcdonald family. My Mcdonald Line comes out of Hampshire County WV then Virginia. Searching for info on Angus Mcdonald,Donald Mcdonald,Jennette Mckernan Mcdonald. This Donald married a Hannah in which that is all I know per the documents I have pulled. This Donald also married a Sara Critten. I can find ZERO Vital records on any of them or dont know anything else about them. This Angus would be my fourth great grandfather. He would have died around 1808-1810

Would like to contact any ancestors of John McDonald b 1850, Kilsyth Stirling (son of Malcolm McDonald and Agnes nee Patrick) m 1871 Kilsyth Stirling to Agnes Pringle b 1844 Gorbals, Glasgow City, Lanarkshire (daughter of William Sharp Pringle and Elizabeth nee Grant). Son Andrew John McDonald b 1886 Lossit, Kilsyth Stirling is my grandfather. Believe Andrew's siblings to be Malcolm b 1871, John b 1873, William b 1874, Elizabeth b 1877 and James b 1880. Would appreciate any information. Thank you.

We live in Melbourne Australia and are coming to UK in August. My wife, then known as Deirdre Carter is trying to find a friend Jane MacDonald who would be in her sixties and lived on the isle of Barra.

Happy Spring to you all...

I just was told in December 2009 that my paternal DNA--matches totally to the MacDonald and MacNeill of Barra Scotland. For several generations we only knoew our names as "Williams" but with the advent of DNA testing, we are MacNeills of Renfrwshire. Has anyone heard of the "Black" group of Donald, Macneill DNA ? I can only imagine who my ancestors really are. The MtDNA points 10 out of 10 to ladies from Ireland, particular the ones who went to settle New Scoland Canada..As the MtDNA reflects, I am 10 of 10 to an American Indian female whose name was Mourning Dove or Christena Kintaskit . What I have read, her father was also Scot and Indian blood and they all lived on the Colville Reservation in Oregon Canada Borer.

Ryan your name is Williams also...Can you give a reasonable explaination as to why my paternal line would be Williams and not MacDonald or MacNeill ?

G'day all! I live in Melbourne Australia but I am looking to connect with Macdonald descendants that came from the Knoydart area of Scotland. My ancestor, Donald MacDonald and his wife Catherine MacGillis sailed on the Macdonald in 1786 and settled in Glengarry Ontario Canada. Looking to connect with descendants of their children. Open to any tips on how to look for this family in Knoydart. Thanks!
