Dear All:

This thread is intended for posting of current URLS of other
web-sites that have information on the history or information
on the Surname or Clan. These web sites can include
archives, libraries, or just the Clan or Sept web site etc
So Clan Secretaries can keep this thread current or just
a interested member of the surname that has the
web site for their own family.

Please reply to this post and change the subject heading to
the name of the web site that is posting the news. Then keep that
thread current with news etc of your web site ( change of
address etc)

The benefit of having your own thread here is that you can
post the URL in newsletter or emails etc to newsgroup or
mailing lists etc. That way, any interested parties of the
Clan, Sept, or even a unique family group can always come
to your own web site for news and information.

The posting here will also be visible for an extended period vs
the short retention time of the mailing lists.

Please feel free to post this notice to other surname
message boards and mailing lists that would be
interested in this new message board.

Best Regards
John A Hansen

Surnames: Swint
Mt surname is Swint and I believe it is a sept of MacQueen. I'm seeking for relevent information to establish a link and I'll need some help.

The reason I ask is because I would like to switch my surname from Swint to MacQueen by my 30th birthday and any help will be greatful.

Thank you

There are no shortcuts in family research. You need to begin with yourself and your immediate family, and work back one generation at a time, proving the linkages as you go.

However, there is one way to possibly prove a genetic relationship between your ancestry SWINTs and the MacQUEENs -- through a DNA study. Scott Kendall is in charge of the McQueen DNA study; you can read more about it here:

For help on your research, you might have better luck posting on the genealogy lists -- this board is for Clan business rather than genealogy per se.
