The time period I am mostly interested in would be anything before 1900, but I am not limited to any inquiries or info before or after this period.
I am also interested in finding more info about the Brennan, Davidson, McKirgan, Nicol, Robertson & Sloan Families, who lived in and around Scotland and Northern Ireland before or after the 1900's.
I would greatly appreciate any info that someone may want to share and I would be willing to share any info that I have that may also be helpful to your research.
