Sorry Polwarth....... Won't let it happen again, I promise!

Let me correct myself

I will have to get use to thinking of myself as an English man.


I am truly, truly sorry if I offended anyone.

--count me embarrassed!

Hey, don't be so sad. I had a very good friend, his name was Peter Smith and he was the most Scottish Glaswegian I have ever met. The last name of an Edinburgh friend of mine is HILL and he has got a clan connection, too. Just go on digging and let us know what you found out.

Cook

No apology needed! Having read my reply to your earlier post, I think I came over as a little harsh..... it's just that the whole 'Brit' thing is a major irritant to me.... even though it is being used with more and more frequency by our own media....

Hohummmmmm, probably just means I'm getting old

Red face Hiya Cook!

I am related to the Clan Lamont through my mother's side - so WELCOME!

As you may see from the 'Lamont' link, my Lamonts came from Oban - and some are still there! So don't give up! You will love 'belonging' to the Lamonts ...! lol

Polwarth I completely understand what you meant!
I actually knew it was not the right Slang to use. I don't know why I did used it.
Whatever!!

Jacobitedreamer, Thanks, I will keep digging. I haven't given up yet. I know I'm a scot. Do you have any suggestions as far as finding something in England to find the true parents, G-parents, etc. of my ancester there? I have tried the websites for the county, and the Quaker websites. They will make me pay for a person to look for records.... I don't really want to. But, I am slowly running out of options, no one in any message boards has looked any further back (or if they did,they didn't find anything) then my ancester who came over to America. I find that strange. Appearently, he was a poor man, would that have to do with it? Still, I would think that he would have siblings or parents on record.
Ok now I am babbling! Sorry

Singer, Thanks for the welcome! I did see your Lamont string, I am proud to be a decendent of the Lamonts! They had a rouph time of it, it seems. I am amazed that the clan lived on to become so strong. Now it seems that if you are Lamont you are proud! And I don't blame anyone. I think I will be checking in on that string as well.

--Cook

You could try to contact the English Red Cross, maybe they could help you further...

Wink Lots of Cooks in England ...

...Hi again! There are lots of Cooks here in England and I'm sure that you will find your British heritage here ...

...As surnames were orginally derived from the persons trade, then hopefully, someone in your family is a really good cook! ...

Good Luck with your search and best wishes
