    Red face Just getting started.

    Hi everyone. When I was young, and really had no interest in where I came from, my dad told me that our family descended from Scotland. He also told me that we left Scotland and migrated to Nova Scotia and then on down to New England. Well, now that I am older I have discovered that I now want to know this history. Unfortunately, all of the older folks of my family have past and I have very few family members that I can discuss this with. So, my wife and I recently went to the Scottish Highland Festival in Blairsville, Ga. I talked to a number of Clans that where there and discovered that my name, "Morris", on my dads side, is either from the Clan Gordon or the Clan Buchanan depending on what part of Scotland we originated. I have gone on line and via Nova Scotia vital statistics found that my grandfather and grandmother did indeed come from there. But so far haven't found any thing beyond them. So I guess I am asking for suggestions on how to go back further. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Don Morris.
