Hold the phone :!: Ancestry have just updated my DNA test results and now I have gone from being 48% Scottish to 92% Scottish :o :o that's a big leap, so now my origins point to the North and West (Highlands and Islands) rather than the South West (North West Ireland) :D not that I had a problem wit...

Re: Name Change

Hi jg
Thank you for the reply,
This family were in the Angus Glens so could very well have been Jacobite's although have yet to find their name recorded. I wondered if they could be Irish as there seems to be a strong Irish connection re DNA test results from desendents.

Thanks Again

Re: Helen Taylor Elder

Hi WilmaM I feel that the marriage record is correct because of the other family member present as a witness, Helen could have just recorded Annie Elder as her mother (McConnachie) but she was recorded as Elizabeth Elder M.S. Drummond or maybe Helen did not want to be recorded as illegitimate :oops:...
