I am interested points of origin, and believe that the following survey may shed some light.Please respond to my e-mail email@example.com of the GenForum.I'll post a summary of results in a couple of weeks.Send whatever is known about:
Earliest country (and county) of ancestors
Name variations (for example, Barclay, McPartlan, etc.)
Reason for name change (for example, political, religious, legal, spelling error, etc.)
Where and when family emigrated (e.g., Ireland to N. Wales)
If family was thought to be originally Scotch-Irish, Celtic, Germanic, Anglo-Saxon, etc.
