Dear All:

Please start a separate sub-thread under this
thread ( just do a reply) 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

Best Wishes and Happy Hunting to All

Dear Clan Ramsay Posters:

Please bear in mind that the genealogical portion of the Clan Ramsay board should keep within the time frame of the Clan System being active in Scotland. This would be up through 1745-47 as it was quashed following the Jacobite Wars.

Should you post genealogical queries to the Board and find them "deleted", take a look to the Ramsay Surname Board as I likely have moved them to the surname board where they are more appropriate to the topic.

This is not to say that the Clan Ramsay board is not for genealogical queries and posts. This is to provide a reminder that they are CLAN specific and not general
in time and place. Period circa 1000 through 1747 and Scotland, Ireland, Europe in geographic nature. Think of those under the Clan system and where they would have been, as such. Where and when their Chiefs resided, origins of the name and time frame/locations descended from.

Remember that this board is more inclusive than strictly Genealogy and History, but that there are guidlines as posted by John Hansen when he created the Boards. Please
refer to his initial post which will be found here:

Yours Aye,
