    3. I'm wondering why this Clan List is being used for ordinary genealogical research. Surely the regular Craig List should be used for such? James.

I read the rule regarding topic " The CLAN-CRAIG mailing list is for anyone with a genealogical or historical interest in the Scottish Clan Craig. Topics include searches for Craig ancestors........etc." and was unaware there is an regular Craig list. If the writer could steer me to the regular Craig list it would be appreciated. Fred

    3. Hi Betsy, You need to consult the census records. You'll then have more information, including their birthplaces. 1881 Census transcription is on the Family Search site. Images are available at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk which is a pay site. Craig is a very common name in Lanark, Ayrshire - don't know about the rest of Scotland. My lot emigrated before the first useful census in 1841. Cathy At 08:44 AM 24/04/2006, you wrote: >I, too, am descended from the Craigs of Larnark.

    2. I, too, am descended from the Craigs of Larnark. My grandmother, Mary Elizabeth (Mollie) was born there in 1876. She emigrated to the U.S. in 1891. Her parents were Daniel and Sarah Burgess. Siblings were Joseph, James and Margaret. I have no further information on them other than that they lived in Mossend or Motherwell. Were (or are) there many families by the name of Craig in that area? Betsy

    3. Hi Joe, I'm also interested in CRAIGs from Lanark or Ayrshire or Glasgow area. James CRAIG married Janet Hunter HOUSTOUN in 1829. In 1839 they emigrated to South Australia. The only clue I have to James' parents is that he was born 2 Feb 1804 according to a Family Bible. I presume they were reasonably well off as they came unassisted. You wouldn't have a missing James would you? or anyone else? ;-) Cathy At 05:25 AM 16/04/2006, jfcraig wrote: >Looking for info on John craig father of william m jean russel jan >15 1763 in Lanark Scotlad. joe craig

One member delegate from each Clan, House or Scottish Society is invited to join to represent their officially recognized clan/society organization. We are in the process of revamping our web site http://www.scottishinfo.org It is currently off line, however, it is our hope to have it back up and functional before the end of April. We hope to include many helpful elements for the public to view. Currently one of the major projects in process is a comprehensive games listing for all 50 US states. In future, we hope to be able to add an International games listing. I would appreciate it if you would email me directly at confido@ix.netcom.com with: the most current contact information for your Clan, especially: the name of your Chief the names and contact information for those that convene your tents or are area commissioners the name and contact information for your genealogist(s) the name and contact information for your clan historian(s) the name and contact information for your editor(s) the name of your clan newsletter and frequency of publication the URL/information re your clan's official discussion group... is it this list at Rootsweb? or is it different? the name and contact information for whoever may be in charge of your DNA project the URL for your clan's OFFICIALLY sanctioned website -- sorry no personal or non-sanctioned sites can be linked Additonally, SIS, will have a tent at the upcoming Sacramento Valley (California) Caledonia Club Games, in Woodland, California, at the end of April. If you will send some information regarding your clan, we will be pleased to have it on hand, whether or not your representative is able to attend and host a tent at the event. We would also appreciate your mailing a copy or copies of your newsletter, in order that we may share with the public part of what your clan has to offer to its members. If you manage, sponsor or sanction DNA projects for your clan, please mail information regarding the project(s) and we will make it available at the tent for those interested. Also, for those of you interested, there is a Scot DNA project that all Scots and Scot Clans are welcome to join or share DNA results with, no matter which service you used. John Hansen is the Project Manager. You will find more information about this project at http://www.scottishdna.net and also in the Scot-DNA@rootsweb.com list archives.
