Hello. McDonald, the most famous Scottish Clan, celebrates our Irish Ness. You have a very recent history of Clan Donald ancestry. Why have you omitted our decent from Conn of Tara, through Cholla Uais, down through Fergus Mor Mac Erca, to Somerled? We are as Irish as any clan in Ireland. We are the direct descendants of the kings of Dalriada. The so-called "Scots" came from Ireland. I would like to see an updated heritage, to include our Emerald Green Irish Roots!!!! I'm not complaining, I just want people to know about Scotland's Irish roots - through the Irish kingdom of Dalriada and my clan's Irish DNA. By the way, three out of four elements on our crest are Irish. The only one which is not is the ship. Look at the background colors and you'll see the flah or Ireland - White, Green and Gold. Is it any wonder???
Ive done some tracing of my family the McDonald clan they landed in North Carolina in 1756 that is where many of my family still live thats where the trail has gone cold
I know the clan I am from and he came to Nova Scotia Canada in the 1770s.
I just started to research the last name of my late wifes to help my daughter learn more about mom. If you have any info or good way or place to start i am all ears. Here is my email firstname.lastname@example.org
My ancestors, John MacDonald b. in Assynth Southerlandshire, Scotland m. Marion Grant. Any connecdtions? Please e-mail at email@example.com
I know absolutely nothing of my ancestors. I only know I am Scot, my maiden name is Janet MacDonald. My family didn't share or care. How do I research my heritage, where do I start?
Oh, I should leave an email address as I may never find this site again. Forgot to include that my family lived in N.Y. State. Our family really never shared anything, but I need to know.
So what is the difference between me being a McDonald vs. a MacDonald. I've always been told I had irish heritage not Scottish, I know my ancestors are from Ireland! I'm so confused!
Hi, I'm Sarah McDonald I am a third generation Irish descendent I know almost nothing of my whereabouts of ancestors my grandparents(they were Irish) died very young long before I was born and never learned anything from my heritage all I know is my grandparents came over as children in about 1915 and that they had recently lived in a small village name mayo in Ireland the village had been destroyed in a war against Northern Ireland long before they were born and ended up taking refuge in America.
