Site Last Updated:    March, 2008                What's New?

March, 2008

Links page updated. Sorry folks; it's not much to add. Time to spend on family history has been at a premium lately with the latest leaf on the family tree taking up most of my time, especially since she's now walking and refusing to take naps during the day. Further research will have to wait until she's a wee bit older.

April, 2006

New article posted by Fenton MacHardy on "Reverend William McHardy, Priest at Braemar 1804-1809," most probably brother to James of Ordachoy. Fenton researched the Catholic archives to try to discover James' parentage through William the Priest and uncovered a fascinating individual history. A valuable addition to the web site and a must read for anyone trying to take James' lineage back past 1804!

New links added.
