FYI: The splendid youtube has provided some clan histories including the Barra McNeils, etc Campbells, Armstrongs!
There are various 'people lists' on this site, associated with each and every topic. Click on the picture below to see what we have at this time. And below THAT is the link to a full explanation of the Knapdale Data Base.
An active, interesting site, with photos and genealogy, centered around Auchendrain township south of Inveraray.
These are two sites devoted to the Clan McAlister, by a professional historian. If you go to a surname index to those listed in the Hearth Tax, you will find that the McAllisters were in charge of Castle Tarbert, but by 1694, had moved to more comfortable accommodations (5 windows!!) to the west end of West Loch Tarbert.
Their data base includes more than 4,000 inmates, with records of their crimes. Like "Alan McLean", transported to Australia, a story that will keep you up at night. And then, there are names of children, younger than 9 years.
CLAN MACMILLAN!!! People (who shall be nameless) have asked me over and over, "Why McMillans?" The simple answer is, of course, that this is MY site, and I can do whatever. However, more seriously: Alexander McMillan's Cross at Kilmory Knap. This is a splendid object, and is as fine an object as anything in Scotland. Thank goodness Knapdale was so isolated, the first fine iconoclastic rage of the Protestant Reformation did not reach Kilmory Knap.
And, Canada's Yukon Territory rejoices in a McMillan River, named after James McMillan, a native of Scotland. I live in the Yukon.
A note to readers: please let me know if you find broken links, wrong spelling or any outrageious errors! I can easily correct these, and remember I have no editor to help me! Thanks for your visit. After a night's sleep, the spheres made the connection, and you can access the data base!
