I am surprised you need help researching my uncle Archibald Cameron (1804-1874), his family is very well documented online, as is that of his wife Flora McLean. All you really have to do is search in google and plenty of information comes up, one of our cousins has even written up biographies of Archibald and some of his children and grandchildren online. Though his claim that Archibald was head gamekeeper to the Duke of Argyll is something certainly disputed by my side of the family, I grew up among people who actually remembered these people, their children and grandchildren, so I take issue with some some of the claims people make online about them. For instance Zoe Kemp, here on Ancestry, a descendent like me of Samuel Cameron (1811-1886) continually makes claims about the the parentage of Samuel's wife Mary Clow which are patently incorrect. My great-grandfather Cameron knew Mary Clow's parents names without having to look-up any documents, and among our family papers are the death certificates of Mary Clow herself and two of her brothers, all of which prove my great-grandfather right and Zoe Kemp wrong, so while you will find plenty of information online,it is not all correct, and you should always check it.
