brian mckay's family tree
I've been reasonably successful in tracing most of my ancestors back to the 6th generation , but at that stage it got much harder. I've found a few in each of the 7th, 8th and 9th generations, one couple in the 10th generation, two in the 11th and one in the 12th, with the earliest event being the marriage of Alexander Cranstoun and Helen Falconer in 1648.
On the side bar are links to the personal pages of each ancestor I've found. Although perhaps not the formal way of naming the structure, I've entitled each generation by number, i.e. I represent the 1st Generation and my parents the 2nd Generation; my grandparents the 3rd Generation, and so on.
