Dear All:

Please start a separate sub-thread for each Clan ancestor.

The thread on this board (and the mailing list) is intended for
comments, hints on how to locate, and discussions
on those distant ancestors ( sometimes brick walls) that are
very hard to locate. Anyone with knowledge of the
Clan Ancestors or searching for ancestors and especially
the Clan Genealogist are especially encouraged to post
their finding on the Clan ancestors.

Please do not use this board for merely looking for
recent descendants. That function is better in the
Surname message boards and mailing lists.

Use the standard procedure in the subject header of
inserting your family ancestor information in the following format
NAME > location > dates

Dear Ian,
I am not sure which Adam Currie line is mine, I saw one who married Janet Swan and had a son named Adam Currie b. 1753 which is about when my Adam was born. I would love to see your Swan line, if it is not too much trouble. Did the Swans stay in Scotland?

I am also looking for information on Swan family in Lanark. The earliest date I have is a John Swan b. 1774 in Lanark. He married Janet Williamson in 1795. Their children were James, John, Robert and Samuel.

Ian, Do you have a Janet Swan b. 2 May 1728 who married Adam Currie 1 Dec 1743 in Carmichael, Lanark? I think her Father was William.
