A little more than a week ago, I created a mailing list to discuss the Mc/MacDonald families who settled in Nova Scotia. Through this list, I hope descendants of these many families will be able to solve the mysteries within their tree branches.
Everyone with an interest in Mc/MacDonald families in Nova Scotia is welcome to join.
Please, introduce yourself and tell us (if you know) when the first McDonald in your family arrived in New Scotland (Nova Scotia). Provide their name, when and where they were born (or guessed to these facts), where and when they settled in Nova Scotia and the name of their spouse. If you don’t know all this information, tell us what you do know.
If you don’t know the original settler, tell us the first known ancestor with this surname name in Nova Scotia. Perhaps you’ll discover the first McDonald by sharing your information.
