    • is there opportunity to research Clan Mcfadden on Isle of Mull?

      Island of Mull Aug 11, 2015 at 4:05 PM

      We understand that McFadden may be a sept of the clan McLean. My name is Brad McFadden and my wife and I are trying to see if Mull might have been the birthplace of my tenth great grandfather (Andrew McFadden) in 1675. The only records we have say he was from The Highlands. he moved to Garvagh, Derry, NI for a short while and then emigrated to the New World (Merrymeeting Bay, Maine) in 1718. We are traveling to Scotland next month and would love to do a little family genealogy research. Are any old parish records available for visitors to research? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you.

      Glasgow-Edinburgh...Train or bus, in terms of sightseeing.

      Glasgow Dec 2, 2013 at 1:52 PM

      HI there

      I'll de doing a round trip from Glasgow to Edinburgh somewhere in the next Spring.

      I've never been to any of both cities and It seems to me that I don't have any particulary strong reason to choose the train over the bus, and vice versa (time, money, location, etc).

      What I'd like to know from you is if any of those itineraries is better than the other in terms of sightseeing.

      I'll say it in a different way in case my English is too cryptic: Will I see a nicer Scotland landscape from the bus or from the train, neither or both?

      Thanks :)
