Hi fellow researchers, from a really cold Johannesburg, South Africa.
Found Talking Scot, while searching on ScotlandsPeople site for my elusive SHAW's.
Hopefully I will find more links via this forum.
Good hunting all.

Hello keltyk and welcome! Glad you're finding some interesting and helpful information here :D We have had a number of members looking for tips on how to research ancestors in South Africa so I'm sure you'll be able to help others also. I have a South Africa question myself, actually :- that I will ask when I am done traveling (in transit at the moment, from central U.S. to pacific northwest).

All the best,
Sarah

Hi TalkingScot,

I came across TalkingScot.com after registering with ScotlandsPeople and opening their "Help & resources - Discussion Groups". As I have very limited information to go on, I now believe your website to be a more appropriate forum to assist me in my family search back before the year 1735, as found below in Background Information Introduction.

I realise that I am searching for a needle in a hay-stack. But as I have come so far since 2010, I am compelled to continue to "Retrace The Journey of My Paternal Australian Descendants" from Australia, across to Canada, down to the USA, across to Ireland and now end my family search with a Scottish Connection hopefully!

It is pure coincidence but there is also an Irish-Scottish Connection on my maternal side, which I will be investigating at some stage in the near future.

Chow for Now!

Bob C.

Background Information:

I initially registered with ScotslandsPeople in the hope that I maybe able to establish a link between my paternal Irish-born g/g/g/g/g-f Robert C. (b. 1735 Belfast, Co Antrim, Ire. ) and Scotland because of a no. of indicators that I believe point to this linkage, namely:

1. His Presbyterian background, which is also known as the Church of Scotland.
2. His joining the Scottish Dr/Rev. Thomas Clark's Scotch-Irish congregation, who migrated to New York in 1764 from Newry, Ireland and known as the "Cahan Exodus". He took up an allotment of farmland on the Rev. Clark's portion of Turner's Patent 1764 at White Creek/New Perth (Charlotte Co) now Salem, Washington Co. Upper NYS.
3. Names associated with Scotland given to his children and passed on down through the generations e.g Robert(obviously), Andrew, Elizabeth & Charles Campbell C. (my g/g/g-f. b. Canada, m. Sydney, without one piece of background detail on his certificate and the linch-pin to my journey.)

Originally from Clydebank. Have been researching two family trees covering Glasgow, Edinburgh, Arbroath, Dunfermline, Dunbartonshire and Northern Ireland. Found your website. Hope to trace further details of Scottish ancestors.

Surnames in Scotland include Gardiner, Nimmo, McGregor, Philp, McGuffie, Williamson, Clarke, Kiddie, Wark, Paris, Jack and Porteous.

Surnames in Northern Ireland are Clarke, Porter, Fenn from the Newry, Goragh and Mullaglass areas.

Regards,

JohnnyG
