Hello from Western Australia - I am new to this forum.....


I have been researching the family tree for nearly 40 years. Only recently I have had the frustrating privelege to begin searching for Scottish ancestry & some Irish ancestry.
I had no idea how confusing it could be, and I know I will need help and guidance with this side of the family tree.
Welcome from me too.
I have yet to brave my Irish roots, but the Scotlandspeople site should be your first stop.

Thank you - I have tried Scotlands People but, there are too many Neil McKellars to narrow down my search, I will keep persevering who knows I may get lucky ..
Doesn't help when the son, father, grand-father and great grandfather all share the same name and no one in the family knows any places of events to give you a helping hand.
