New Database For Those Searching Hebridean Ancestors

Bill Lawson has spent many years tracing the families that once occupied the Outer Hebridean islands. Now, Bill has a searchable database with over a quarter of a million names. His sources are unique to the Hebridean Islands. Currently the database consists of an emigration database, with many of these families making their way to Canada. 

The database can be found at www.hebridespeople.com

An initial search is free, however, to view the results of the search, you need to purchase credits. Credits are £1 each (10 credits for £10, 20 credits for £20 etc). 

You can also sign up for a free newsletter to help you keep abreast of the additions to the database. 

Happy Searching!
