3. [S-I] GAVIN / GAVAN Families [1]
Hello, My husband's great-grandparents were a GAVIN / WHELAN couple from County Galway, Ireland. They came to Massachusetts in the 1860's. I'd like to offer an FYI that earlier this month I Adopted the GAVIN List. There are only 28 subscribers, and I'd like to invite others to join us. It is fine with me to include other spellings of the name, like GAVAN. This is the information page: http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/g/gavin.html Thank you for your time.

5. Re: [S-I] Ulster Scots Protestants of Lakefield, Quebec, Canada [1]
Dear John, I know little about the SI in Quebec--though my granddaughter's father is half French Canadian (Garneau)-- and thanks for the appreciation. It helps to keep one slogging along. Besides following up on Keith's 'lead' of McCulloch, be aware, if you are not already of: neighbors (land deeds and grants), the family of the wife and of the spouse of the children. Pay careful note to anyone witnessing marriages, wills, memorials, etc. If you cannot find a connection to the McC's directly you might vi

9. Re: [S-I] SCOTCH-IRISH - McCULLOUGH [1]
Hi there. To all who are researching McCULLOUGH, there were three of that name -- possibly brothers -- as at the Siege of Londonderry in 1689. They seem to be members of the so-called "Glenarm Volunteers" from co. Antrim who took refuge in or came to assist the City. Presbyterians and Dissenters, one of them (at least) married into a Quaker family. My guess is that several of this same family went to North America in the early days of migration into Pennsylvania.

11. [S-I] McClellands in Bovevagh Parish near Dungiven [1]
Listers, after 47 years, I finally made a breakthrough in finding out where my Arthur McClelland family lived in County Londonderry. I found he and his wife, Annie Erwin, baptising a dau Mary in 1811 in Dungiven parish, showing Arthur "of Bovevagh"...(only a few miles from the town of Dungiven) Now I'm hoping that perhaps I can connect to someone else researching McClellands from that area that may be part of this family. I found this birth record in PRONI in the Dungiven baptism records. I found 2 o
12. [S-I] McCULLOUGH- Ireland early 1700 [1]
We also are talking McCullough's over on the Scotch-Irish Rootsweb pages. This is shared information. We have an Alabama, US and Quebec, Canada researcher looking for McCullough's. Now if you guys shared some DNA THAT would be interesting :) Charles K. Bolton's book on "Scotch-Irish Pioneers in Ulster and America" lists eleven McCullogh's as Ruling Elders in Ulster in the early 1700's. I'll list them by date so we have it saved on the list: John McCullogh 1692 Broadisland, Antrim Robert
13. [S-I] Ulster Scots Protestants of Lakefield, Quebec, Canada [1]
A Happy New Year to Everyone! First, I want to add my appreciation for the effort and skill of Linda for serving so admirably as the site administrator and to everyone for their participation and contributions. My interest was piqued by Keith McDonald's posting as my wife is a McCullough and we have been unsuccessful in tracing this family ancestry prior to the 1830's in Lacolle, Quebec area. Keith lists "McCulloch" as one of the original settlers and prior to our family standardizing on McCullou
14. Re: [S-I] Holiday Bonanza-More Books [1]
Doug, does your Boston book give any information on people emigrating from Ireland and going to Canada, instead of directly to America? Or does anyone have any ideas about how I can find out more about that issue? My ancestors left Co. Armagh in what is now Northern Ireland in 1840 and they went to Ontario, Canada, where we have found the log home they built. It is being lived in and loved by a young couple and their children - not our relatives. That was so wonderful to find. Anyhow, I know that

Happy New Year Linda and all! I want to express my appreciation for this list. I always look forward to reading the latest posts. I also keep thinking that sooner or later someone will post something that may relate to the protestant settlers (scots-irish) who received land grants to settled and pioneered the bush and swamps in the hills of Wentworth and Gore township in the Laurentians north of Lachute Quebec in the very early 1800s. I have the original map of concessions I,II,III,IV,V,AND VI. With a
16. Re: [S-I] Ulster Scots Protestants in Lakefield, QUEBEC, CANADA [1]
Hi Betty, Thanks for your interesting response. We held a McDonald family reunion in 1989 at the old Kerr's farm boarding house property with more than 100 direct descendants of the original settlers attending from across Canada. Henry McDonald and his wife Esther McCormick who came from Ireland about 1823-27. Esther was born and raised a city girl in Dublin. This was all written up with photos in THE WATCHMAN, a town of Lachute weekly newspaper, October 16th, 1989. my dad, William John Henry McDonald, was
17. [S-I] Announcing New List: LAURENTIDES [1]
Hello, I would like to tell you that I have just started up a new List. I mean it to include research for all the Counties which exist north of the St. Lawrence River in the Province of Quebec. I am aware that many of the Counties have now been grouped into "municiopalities." For instance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argenteuil_Regional_County_Municipality%2C_Quebec I am also aware that for residents of the U.S., the place-name, Laurentides, might not be familiar. As a resident of the U.S.,

Hi folks, I subscribe to a free newsletter produced by DMK HERITAGE. They are a firm that scans and OCRs old books and sells them on CDs much more cheaply than if you tried to buy the old, out of print, rare, book. Their focus is the traditional Scotch Irish areas of the 13 colonies: PA down through Georgia. They have a section on Scotch Irish heritage. They are putting on line what they call Free Small Books. I downloaded one and it was rather large. These books are also not OCR'd...meaning run through
20. Re: [S-I] Grenville Twp, Argenteuil, Lower Canada. [1]
Hi Ellen, My ancestors were part of a family-group which left County Sligo, Ireland, in 1823 and migrated to Canada. * They settled in Argenteuil County. As a coincidence, I have just started up a new List entitled LAURENTIDES. It is for all the counties in Quebec Province which are north of the St. Lawrence River. Or, as someone suggested last night, "Quebec North." I found out last fall that the counties are now grouped into .. municipalities. This is the information page: http://lists.r

Hello Barbara, The 1831 Census has survived for County Londonderry including Dungiven and Bovevagh Parishes. You may find your McClellands in it.

22. [S-I] McCamish/McAmis Home found at last [1]
Hi folks, I'm clicking my heels big time today. It looks like we found the probable origins of one set of three brothers -- the brothers McCamish. They came to Virginia in the early 1770s and after the Revolution moved to Greene Co TN. Their descendents still live in Greene Co but many moved away including my main line of interest which moved west into the valley, settling north of Chattanooga -- McMinn, Bradley, James, Hamilton Co, drifting south in Georgia and west to Missouri, Oklahoma, etc. Other grou
23. [S-I] Ulster Scots in Nova Scotia [1]
Hi all, unfortunately, not Ontario -- where there's a lot of Ulster Scots as well as Irish Protestants. In some areas (I learned doing research for a client) there were many Methodists who were not from Ulster but largely part of the 'missing Protestants' from the rest of Ireland who left and whose history is unrecorded. There's a book on Irish in Ontario, most of whom were Protestant....but in the latest issue of the Ulster Scot is an article on a rarer bird: The Ulster Scot in Nova Scotia, by Alister McRe
