MacDonald Family History

Dear Sandy, My sister and I toured Scotland last year as part of a European and United Kingdom tour. We will be returning within two years to continue our McDonald family history esearch. Our great-great grandfather John MacDonald was born in Ayr in 1822, and raised by his grandfather, John MacDonald, who was a ship owner and lime merchant in Perth, until he went to sea and eventually settled at Port Adelaide, Australia. We are wondering if there is a Family History Research Society, who could possibly help us further, or who we could visit when we return, to access some of the old records. I hope you can help us, and look forward to your reply. Kind regards, Helen McDonald.

The Perth and Kinross Council hold various resources to help you trace Family History at the Archive.
