Hi Alex, I included an excerpt from a Gravestone of Glengarry book on thewebpage as part of my Story of the Week, and mentioned your upcomingupdated Vol. 3.
Also, one of my fellow Finlaggan Councillors, an expert in the Macdonnellsof Leinster, etc., has provided many historic references that contradict theClan Donald, 1904 assertion that the Macdonalds of Loupe (and theMacAllisters) descend from Angus Mor's son, Alasdair Og, not Alasdair Mor Angus Mor's brother. I have quite a bit of research to do now to ascertainthe correct line (hopefully without generation gaps). Do you have anyinformation either way apart from Clan Donald, 1904?

December 22, 2010 6:46:33 AM PSTHello Alex,I see that you have written a few articles on the History of the MacDonalds of Loup andClan Ian Ruadh. I was wondering if if you had ever thought about combining thesearticles into one complete package? If all of your writings on the subject were combinedwould it give the reader a clear idea of what exactly it means to be a MacDonald ofLoup as well as a member of Clan Ian Ruadh, not just in regard to the family line butalso the geographical, political,and historical context? As well, do you have any sort ofbibliographical on Ian Ruadh or any other persons from the Line?
