Historic Scotland

, by

Recently my family and I were able to travel around historic Scotland researching our ancestral ties to this beautiful country. One of the amazing places we visited was Paisley Abbey where our ancestors, the Lords Cathcart I & II, were interred. We searched and searched all over the huge church for their tombs. But we needed to know some crucial information. Traveling Historic Scotland can flip your assumptions 180 degrees. Paisley Abbey was built over time in the 12th century. Major benefactors included the Cathcart family. Over the centuries, major benefactors and important people in society were very often buried…

Does Genealogy Fascinate you?

, by

Does Genealogy fascinate you as it does me? My grandpa used to tell me his family stories. Stories that included farm women dunking their forefingers into coffee cups to see if the farm workers needed their drinks warmed. He sang me old hymns.

I had no more stories. So I went on a quest to discover the people that had pioneered America, fought…
