I just found this site and wanted to introduce myself. I live near Windsor Ontario Canada, (right across the border from Detroit Mi) My Dad did extensive research on the family tree, but I've kinda dropped it since he passed on. It seems our family moved from Scotland to Ireland and then to Quebec Canada during the potato famin. Thespelling was changed from Louden to " Lowden" by an county clerc during a land purchase. My relative went along with it because he under the legal age and unsure of his rights re: the land purchase.
