A brief introduction: My Scottish ancestry (so far as I can trace it) leads back to the MacFarlane clan, though our subset was named McCallan (changed upon entry through Ellis Island to Macallan). Not sure how much further back it goes, as our family tree was never documented too well.

I can only trace the Fraser Scottish side back to 1700, too many people named Thomas Fraser who named their sons Thomas Fraser. The records I need haven't been digitized yet so there's still hope. The Buchanan side from my mother can be traced back into the B.C.E, but nobility often keeps records.

Hello guys. I have a lot of Scottish heritage. My paternal Grandfather is almost 100% with a very small amount of English. We have traced his ancestry back to about the 1200's.

Clan Fraser needs some representation in middle America. I don't have the cash to travel to California or down South for festivals just to meet up with more Frasers.
