Try again. :) I am looking for a copy of Somerled MacMillan's Bygone Lochaber in Australia. While I can find a reference for it it seems it is not avaible from Library or sale. Does anyone have a copy?

Many thanks for inviting me to the project. I am interested to know if there are any other McMillans or related surnames that have been asked to be involved. I see from my Big Y that there are some Bains related and my earliest known descendant comes from Lochaber. Trying to get an idea as to how there might be a relationship between the Clan MacMillan and the Clan Maelanfaid.

I am Brian Fitzgerald, DC135, down in the Dalcassian line (AKA L-226) due to a NPE in 1320 when the O'Dea chieftains of Southern Ossory (Modern Kilkenny) married into the surviving Norman women folk of the Norman Fitzgerald Family there. This was during the Robert de Brus uprising in Scotland. He sent his brother Edward to Ireland (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_campaign_in_Ireland) and the Fitzgerald men of south Ossory were exterminated (The Barons of Ida and Iverk) but the the local O'Dea sept wanted better relations with the Normans as soon as the Scots had left and remarried the surviving Fitzgerald women allowing them to call themselves and their children Fitzgerald only after 4 generations of being called Fitzgeald-O'Dea. That deal was honored but the Desmond Geraldines, when they regained power, hated the fact that the offspring were not pure Norman so they cast-out the Fitzgerald-O'Dea family. This led to the various problems with Grants, a local offshoot of theirs, and with the local Butlers, later to become the Ormonds line. In any case there is little doubt that I and presumably all my line cousins alive today carry the ancient O'Dea marker DC-135. The connection with some of the the early Scottish clans is new to me but science is stern tutor. Graeme asked me to join so here I am.

Hello and thank you for the invite to join Clan Maelanfaid. I am delighted to be a member

Bill Maloney here. I joined the Clan Maelanfaid group at the nudging of Graeme. I am interested in ancestral links between the Macaloney, McAlonan, McMartin, McPhail, Cameron, Molamphy, McSorley and/or McLoney to my Maloney linage. That linage seems to be anchored in Anderson County, SC with a possible link up into PA. The linage I have, traced via documentation, begins with a John Maloney, born in Anderson, SC in 1813/4. Linage then moves into Cobb County, GA and Lincoln Co., TN followed by Texas. Look forward to any light that can be shared.

Thank you for the invitation. My terminal SNP goes L21, Z253, L1066 but not through FTDNA. Only the Burns/Byrne project group has used my terminal SNP. My first review of the DNA table shows to me I do not belong in this group. Thank you shoutout to Graeme for inviting me
